In CBS everyday was a unique experience. CBS gave me a great platform to explore myself personally and professionally which has helped me in nurturing my talent in different ways and by the end of the program I had also overcome my reserve points. The best part about this one-year program was that all the concepts were given a practical approach through Management games, case studies, movies, videos, field work and the list goes on. This not only made learning fun but a lot more interesting and informative. Right from the dean to staff members to the faculty members all have been very helpful and they bought out the best in me.
Thank you CHENNAI BUSINESS SCHOOL for this beautiful journey of transformation!

To me, Chennai Business School is an innovative learning hub. CBS taught me management skills that are beyond books, from the dynamic syllabus to the thought-provoking lectures; there is much to gain from lessons I have learned here. Though I believed I was anti-finance person (fun fact – I used to sleep during my math classes in school) when I initially joined, I was pleasantly surprised with the teaching at CBS how much I grew to understand, and appreciate the concepts and prevailing practices in accounting and finance. You’ll find every possible method of learning here – debates, activities, workshops, field work and whatnot. There is undoubtedly a lot of hard work and late nights involved! The professors and the value addition they give to management lessons is the heart of CBS learning, and these teachings have definitely helped me at work, and my classmates who are running their own businesses. If you’re looking for more insights for life at CBS, or unsure as to which specialization is the one for you, feel free to connect to us through the admissions centre and they will redirect your queries to us. We’re always happy to help.

Joining CBS was probably the best decision I’ve made. Being a naturally inquisitive person, I like to learn new things and enrich my knowledge. CBS gave me the flexibility of exploring my options, guiding me through challenges and cementing my choices. I had the freedom of going up to a finance professor to question the decision of a company’s merger or debate with the marketing professors on the digitization of the market, apart from the exciting discussions we had in HR. The study materials were more practical and real life oriented than just being another theory in a textbook. The professors adopted a multitude of teaching methods, each more interesting than the other (yes we did have theory classes as well but, it was more of presentations, role plays, debates and so much more). The faculty was a rich mix of current day professionals and pioneers of each industry who gave us different insights that helped us become who we are today. As our Dean always stresses, his door was always open to helping us achieve what we envisioned for ourselves. As someone who went in clueless and came out with a justifiable knowledge of the business world, I owe it all to CBS. All in all, BEST DECISION MADE.

I chose the PGPM course at CBS to help me get closer to my dreams. Throughout my course, I had countless opportunities to develop analytical skills, leadership, and proactive thinking through various course-related activities. CBS has the best faculty team who provide 360- degree support to students. I thank all my faculty members and friends for the amazing journey at CBS.

On one sunny afternoon in 2014, I was waiting for a bus at the Velachery stop and right opposite was the Chennai business school building. To kill the wait time, I decided to walk in. Little did I know then that this was the place where I would discover my true calling. Being a fresher who had just completed his undergraduate studies; I was clueless in finding the starting point of my professional career. It might sound clichéd but my one year at CBS helped me in discovering my industry niche-data science. All the professors here were mentors to me and all the classes conducted were good brainstorming sessions. Every business case study discussion would always extend from ‘answering the review questions’ to ‘current happenings in the business world.’ Industry internship and market field visits were a part of the curriculum and insights got out of them played a crucial role in helping me become industry ready. My career as an ‘executive business consultant’ solely happened because of the industry skills I acquired at CBS. The advice and the guidance of professors here played a crucial role in my decision to pursue my research study in data science at University of Technology, Sydney. I think the universe decided to be kind to me and I became a part of CBS.

Studying at CBS has been a unique experience. Throughout the one year course, there were new things learnt each day which made it exciting. The faculty members, drawn from various industries, are highly experienced and are able to enlighten us about current trends and situations. The course is structured in such a way that it involves case studies, presentations, team work, visual aids, problem solving, situation analysis, research and field work that hone our skills. With class room interactions, encouragement to ask questions, continuous assignments and appraisals, it makes us well rounded individuals. CBS also encourages us to make paper presentations at other universities, and this enhances our visibility. Importantly, the professors at CBS mentor and guide us to achieve success in our respective careers. Also guest lecturers from various industries give us an insight into the corporate world, something which is often a grey area in a students’ mind. Undoubtedly the one year of education at CBS has been a transformational experience for me and I am proud to be a part of CBS.

I was working with Cognizant for 1 year 7 months as a java programmer before choosing to quit my job and pursue higher education. My main reason behind leaving such a good company was to change my area of work and get into management, which was on my mind for a while. One year down the line, my area of knowledge has expanded, because unlike any other course, your learning is not narrow – it is wide. The teaching at CBS prepares you to put concepts into practice through case studies, field work and class room interactions. Today, I am placed in a good company and have got my dream job. As long as you keep learning and believe in yourself, nothing is impossible.

Chennai Business School is a great place to study and keeps getting better and better. I feel comfortable talking with any teacher at any time about anything – how things are going, what is on my mind, what is happening on campus. My relationship with many of the teachers at school can be classified as friendship. I keep in touch with them. The teaching methodology is very professional in terms of multimedia power point presentations on important topics, provision of hard copies of helpful notes from mentioned books, and many case studies, which were really helpful. The College helped in developing my skills and understanding beyond what I could have hoped for.

Learning at CBS was a totally unique experience – one of the best years of my life; one that actually changed my career path to a greater extent. Initially, I was not very confident, and was not sure about which way my career would go after this one year. But thanks to each and every faculty member who stood by me and guided me every time I needed any, I’m now in a great situation. One thing that makes CBS stand apart from other institution is they make us realize learning is fun. And when you enjoy learning it’s always easier to understand. The one year at CBS passed really quickly, but the memories will stay forever. Big thanks to all my friends and faculty.

Studying at Chennai Business School was not a typical B -School experience. The intimate learning environment meant that I could easily ask questions of the teachers during lectures and case discussions, which helped me gain greater knowledge and insight into the subject content. The best thing about CBS is having the freedom that allowed me to learn what interested me the most, so in all my time here I never felt bored. To any new student coming to CBS, I would say this: Throw yourself at every opportunity that comes your way. Those opportunities can make all the difference between getting what you want and having to settle for second best.

I will always value the time that I have spent at CBS. The time spent here was extremely fruitful as it equipped and enabled me to enter the work field with a great sense of direction and determination to succeed. Most importantly, the faculty and support staff encouraged me to passionately explore all avenues, and helped in unlocking my true potential.

CBS gave me the kind of management education that I wanted after having worked for a while and taking a break for my higher studies in Management. It is rigorous, has an exhaustive curriculum for one year, and has a perfect blend of theory and business application with case studies, field work, and dealing with real industry problems that a management graduate must definitely know about. Learning from the leaders is truly the essence of my Management degree from Chennai Business School.

CBS has been like almost a second home to me. I am sure my friends from CBS would also share the same opinion. Those never ending assignments, Guest lectures by industry speakers and classes by Faculty of high profile, are memories to be treasured. The atmosphere that we grew up in CBS had all the ingredients in right quantities to enable the sharpening of our business acumen. With the best professors around, who were our friends, philosophers and guides throughout the journey were an inspiration to us. The emphasis was always laid on the practical problems that the businesses around the world faced, and we were trained to analyse and work towards resolving these issues. This immaculate blend of theory and practice brought me close to Learning for the Real world and now I am practicing all those learning at MARG Ltd. All good things come to an end, but I would never consider my absence from CBS as an end, in fact it has given birth to a new role as an alumnus. I would cherish every aspect of this role and would continue my association with CBS, ensuring my contribution to the school in every step it takes ahead.
