The MBA course gave me an understanding of how the business world works. The challenges we faced, kept us on our toes, constantly pushing us to give our best shot! It was a synergy between rich experiential learning and deep rooted values that our faculty imparted in us. The MS course was all about strategy and business analytics. The exposure we got at UB was quite a unique one in terms of the curriculum and the teaching pedagogy. I feel fortunate to have experienced student life at both the campuses. The faculty of the program were SME’s from their fields which was indeed the main reason we had a great learning at Amrita. Looking back, my journey at Amrita was such an exuberant ride. The opportunities I got, paved my path from Can I? to I CAN!

Ms. Nikita Hari Placed in Deutsche Bank

The stint at University at Buffalo (UB), State University of New York (SUNY) has been the most enriching of all. We discovered a new path to tread on. We were exposed to a completely new style of pedagogy. The course that we had been to UB for, was heavily packed and demanded about 8 hours of work every day to be able to actively participate in the discussion on the following day.

Albeit the workload, we learnt the subtleties when working as a team. Our group discussions would run late into the night till about 3AM, the benefits of which were reaped towards the end of the course. Another important learning was to make quick and logical presentations to topics that were given extempore. The stage was set for competition within the teams and every team put out their best views and decisions, given the shortest time to think.

Ms. Vidyalakshmi Nair Placed in Beroe

The uniqueness of the MBA-MS dual degree program is many fold apart from the few obvious ones. The MS courses mainly deal with strategy, development and analytics which is a must-have for any manager in today’s competitive world. Thus the MBA and the MS program go hand in hand.

The Bengaluru campus houses a cozy atmosphere and students become one closely-knit family – encouraging healthy competition, learning to work in multi-faceted teams and leading initiatives. One of the most enlightening highlights of the program is the “unlearning and learning” period at University of Buffalo (UB), State University of New York (SUNY). Not only were the students exposed to an entirely different pedagogy but the stint at UB also taught us the importance of working in diverse conditions and groups, working with deadlines and exams that give us every kind of advantage whilst being the most challenging.

This educational modality helped us to think better and faster even in our MBA courses, making our presentations and answers smarter and more strategic.
