Industry Interface

Over the years, Department of Management has undertaken an extensive continuum of Industry Interface activities like Management Colloquia, Management Development Programmes, Consultancy and Customized In-Company Programmes. We have industry experts coming to ASB every year not only from India, but also from the world bringing with them immense valuable information in the form of their experience from the industry they worked in, the culture of their country and the learning’s which give our students an edge over those from most other reputed institutions.
