Aurora's Business School: Crafting Socially & Environmentally Responsible Leaders Through Outcome-Oriented Education

Dr. K. Raghu N Prabhakar,DirectorIn the last three decades, India has witnessed a huge increase in the number of educational institutions, especially for Engineering and Business Schools. Though it may look beneficial for the nation, in reality, the mushrooming growth of B-schools has popped up the question of the quality output of students passing every year from these institutes. Today the truth is - most of the B-schools woo students by offering heightened assurances of providing guaranteed placements and demand heavy fees without giving a second thought to the quality of education. However, there also exist few dedicated institutions that prefer quality over everything. One such B-School that is surging ahead with a dream of providing quality & affordable management education and augmenting employability for students is Aurora's Business School (ABS).

Paving a Path for the Next-Gen
Established in 2005, Hyderabad-based ABS is creating business leaders endowed with abilities such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. This AICTE recognized school offers two-year, trimesterised, full-time PGDM (core) programmes with specializations in Finance, Marketing, HR, Operations, Business Analytics and Supply chain. The school also offers PGDM (Rural Management) and PGDM (Hospital Management). Apart from that it also offers PGDM (Executive) of 15 month duration and PGDM (Part-Time) of three years duration both meant for working executives.

The school is one of the first to offer specializations to enhance the career prospects of the students.
The courses are designed by giving importance to both academic and skill-based education to create a bright future for the upcoming generation. The courses imparted by ABS help students broaden their perception of the current industry scenario. Not just that but they learn the art of planning, decision-making, delegation, analytical thinking, and thus develop their skills in crisis management and problem-solving. Be it their contemporary curriculum, practical approach to learning or offering top-class assistance to the students, every endeavor undertaken by this ingenious B-School is designed to promote these aspects, thereby grooming students for the needs of the industry. "We groom our students to become responsible, competent and cutting edge professional. This further helps them to reach the top with core values and face the changing world with confidence and determination" states Dr. K. Raghu N Prabhakar, Director, ABS.

Differential Factors
ABS follows advanced pedagogy that blends with the traditional classroom teaching and comprises lab sessions, a wide range of interactive sessions and experiential learning. The school also conducts regular international study tours, industrial visits, and offers international summer internship and campus recruitment training along with 100 percent summer placements. From the very first day, the in-depth expertise of the placement team has helped ABS to create and present placement opportunities for all the students.

Post a detailed comprehension of the recruiters' requirements, ABS crafts training modules accordingly and imparts precise training to make its student's placement and industry-ready. With the successful placement records that the institute holds and banking on the relevant academic and industrial experience of the placement team with leading business companies and institution, ABS has collaborated with multinational companies like Accenture, Amazon, Cognizant, Deloitte and many more for recruitment drives.

Just like the strength of a building lies in its foundation, the foundation of ABS is its team of faculty. ABS's faculty members have long industry experience, international exposure and hold credentials from IIMs, top universities and leading business schools. No wonder these experts are responsible for creating an extremely amicable environment in the classroom letting the students feel free to interact with the faculty members without any hesitations. For the holistic development of the students, the B-school has equipped its campus with state-of-the-art infrastructure including ultramodern classrooms, seminar halls, auditorium, well-stocked library, 1Gbps high-speed Wi-Fi, language laboratory, games and sports facility, and more.

For those who want to excel in their life, ABS is the destination to transform dreams into reality, not just academically but also personally and professionally. Since its inception, the B-School has been doing a great job and even now, ABS is relentlessly striving for excellence and is continuously scaling new heights while producing top-class management professionals.
