About Us

ASTHRA, the flagship event of Amrita MBA Programme, Kochi commenced as a B-fest in 2012, metamorphosed into an International Symposium in 2015. As part of the eighth edition of ASTHRA, we are conducting ‘CHAKRAVYUH’, a Business Plan competition.

ASTHRA 8th Edition

ASTHRA 8th edition emphasizes on the various impacts of sudden changes in the VUCA world, and their impact on the business front. We are clearly living in a new reality characterized by Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity, and this new world is here to stay. We at AMRITA, are trying to put forward a small step in understanding these trends, in order to redefine the rightful role of managers in the society.


Chakravyuh is being organised as a part of the 8th Edition of ASTHRA. It comprise of Business Plan. The prime objective of Chakravyuh is to provide a strong pedestal for students and professionals to present their Business Plans, bring it into the limelight, thereby unleashing the entrepreneur in them. Chakravyuh has always been a covetable platform for the participants to meet and interact with eminent entrepreneurs and business conglomerates. The event has also seen participants from Universities across the globe, vying with each other.

In an attempt to upgrade the existing B-Plan, we are introducing “Business Plan with Simulation” which will provide the participants with the opportunity of not only pitching their idea but also getting to know the possible consequences of it virtually. With the support of Amrita Technology Business Incubator, we intend to use virtual simulation as a method to forecast the outcome. Knowing the future business outcomes is also useful in evaluating upgrades to existing processes and implementing new technologies to game out the practical results of those changes.

The Event will be Held in Two Phases
