The best of both worlds’- That was life at Amrita for me. I was lucky enough to be a part of the MBA-MS Program that Amrita offered in collaboration with SUNY, Buffalo. Two high valued professional courses in a span of 2 years and from esteemed universities- It was an opportunity I did not want to miss. 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! The 2 years here, I made some wonderful friends and mentors and carved some beautiful memories which will remain etched in my heart for a life time!

Amrita is not just a campus but a family with energy and life all over. Students are always in constant pursuit of knowledge. When two renowned universities (Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham & SUNY, Buffalo) collaborate to offer two high valued programs in a span of two years with all the necessary exposures, will be an opportunity which nobody wants to miss. Amrita gave not just the management side knowledge but it also taught us how to live a life of values. When MBA taught us how the business world is and its techniques, MS helped us in building strategies in business to succeed. The main attraction of the whole course is the techno-functional exposure to the world of data. How to use the analytical techniques to understand what the data is telling us and deriving insights to help the business to hit the mark. The faculties here are the best in their fields and that’s the main reason why we don’t have a doubt on the quality of learning which we get. The two years here have given me some great mentors and wonderful friends who are still a part of my mainstream life. There is a great saying by Benjamin Franklin, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” Yes here we are involved and so the learning stays with us. In a nutshell Amrita gives you bliss full Life and Learning.

Batch: 2009-2011, Marketing Head, Entertainment Network India Ltd.

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.

The EMBA-MS program from Amrita university has, in my opinion, not just been a standard classroom course. It has been a platform in which professionals have come together to share experiences in their respective domains, while all the time being mentored by professors who themselves come with a lifetime of industry knowledge. In this course, I have found that the onus is not on just learning from a textbook, but on discussing real-life cases and scenarios that hold great relevance to our current work. At the end of this course, I get a feeling of fulfilment on having received a treasure-trove of lessons learnt based on discussions and guidance from not just my professors, but also my fellow peers.

R. K. Patham Iyer
Head, Audit and Compliance, Analytics & Insights, TCS

After spending 25+ years in multiple corporates, I was not sure if i had made the right choice of joining Amrita- UB EMBA-MS twin programme. But Amrita-UB joint faculty and courses surpassed my expectations. It is as much about discovering myself, transforming into a new league of leadership. All my ego, inertia, negative thoughts and complacency got destroyed during this two year course time. This course has forced many of us to discover what we are capable of, so much more than we thought or believed in ourselves.

One of the good things about the Dual Degree Master’s Program with SUNY – Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is that, it’s a tailored business program. The best part about this Indo – US initiative is the opportunity that you get to interact with professors who are from different geographies, with varied consulting & teaching experience across the globe. Classroom sessions are highly interactive and are always accompanied by case studies, current affairs discussions, relevant video clips, presentations, etc. to give a very holistic learning experience.

Some of my most enriching and rewarding experiences as an MIS student are Studying with professionals from some of the best IT companies. Being taught by eminent and immensely respected academicians from two world renowned B-Schools. Working with highly professional administrative staff, who understand the psychology of the working professionals who are balancing the act between study and work. It is highly gratifying to know that MS will help you emerge out a winner, at the end of an exhilarating 18 month journey, without missing a day at work. All working professionals who are aspiring to enhance their academic credentials SHOULD consider this program.

The program has created an immense impact on young aspirants, like myself. The program helped not only acquiring knowledge and skill but also it has brought out inherent qualities within us like co-operation, having fun during work, understanding others, and finally molding the character and personality of the individual. Infrastructure for conducting the program is WORLD CLASS, certainly equal to the corporate training classrooms at Infosys, Wipro or Siemens. The best part of the program is all students are given access to the lectures after the class in form of digital media, which the student can go through anytime and from anywhere.

The course content is very relevant to deliver service to the customer. The most impressive thing was that I could apply the learning at my workplace on a daily basis. Most courses were taught based on case studies. The highlight was the esteemed faculty who were exceptionally brilliant & highly qualified with several years of research background. Their passion for teaching was manifested in their attitude of being always available to us during and after the course. The experience helped me gain confidence and I feel I am better equipped with the necessary tools and techniques to deliver in an organization. The class encompassed students from various domains and services which brought in diverse perspectives. The institution and the faculty were very flexible which helped us balance work and education almost comfortably.

“My MBA journey has been quite a ride! Right from the get-go, it’s been a whirlwind of challenging courses, teamwork, and some seriously epic networking opportunities. The classroom wasn’t just a place to soak up knowledge; it was an arena for innovation, where I fine-tuned my problem-solving skills and learned to keep up with the ever-changing business scene. Plus, the international twist (MS) in the curriculum really cranked up the excitement. Interacting with folks from all over the world, including the rockstar professors of UB expanded my perspective and boosted my ability to work with people from different backgrounds and industries. This whole immersive experience didn’t just make me a better student; it made me better equipped for my career and life in general. Once I entered the professional world after my MBA, I felt like I had the secret sauce for success. The knowledge, skills, and awesome network I built during my MBA journey helped me step up into leadership roles and reach my career goals like a boss.”
