Professor Sridar Natarajan, Dean, Chennai Business School
If you are reading this page, you are probably an aspirant wishing to pursue your management course. Let me first congratulate you on your decision.
I feel it is a good decision for one wanting to make a career in Industry or start a new business to pursue a management qualification – as it provides the necessary cross-functional skills to address management challenges, which are often multi-dimensional.
Chennai Business School is now in ninth year of existence and we are now admitting students for the tenth batch.
When we started our first batch in 2006, we had only 3 specialization modules – which we address as “Varsities”. Today, we offer Programs in six Varsities – Finance, Human Resources, IT (meant for working professionals), International Business and Marketing & Communications Management. The sixth Varsity is one we have launched this year – the Entrepreneurship Program targeting persons who wish to start a new business or grow their existing business.
Right from the year of commencement, CBS has been very well received by Industry. Our students have been placed in reputed organizations like Ashok Leyland, Taj Hotels and Pantaloons, to name a few, and the feedback from these organizations have given us the confidence that their learning has really been “real world”. Placements have been near 100% in every year since inception and we are happy to announce that in the current, more than 75% of the students are already placed!
And finally, it is not all academics at CBS. Students find time to engage in several activities – farewell parties, welcome parties, ethnic day, fete and cultural programs. Students also undertake projects for companies while they are doing the course. The fact that a majority of our admissions happen through student referrals speaks volumes about the popularity and relevance of the Program.
Having made the choice to pursue a management qualification, you will find in Chennai Business School an Institute that addresses most of your requirements. CBS is one of the most-preferred B-Schools in Chennai today and we have commenced our journey to become prominent in the national arena. We have been ranked among the top 50 B-Schools by both Business India and Times of India in 2013. We hope to become the most preferred B-School in the country in the near future.
