Best Business Schools in Kerala, Trivandrum | Asian School of Business

Dr. C. Krishna Kumar


A major question that faces most undergraduates in our country is what to do after getting their degree. To jumpstart a career one of the best options today is to join a Masters programme in management or an MBA. This programme is suitable for students of all streams of undergraduate studies.

Why is an MBA programme relevant in today’s context? To perform effectively in a corporate assignment, a large number of skills are essential. An MBA programme in a good institute can help students to acquire and hone all the required skills. Of course, the challenge is to find the right institute that can help the student develop into a professional.

The tagline of the Asian School of Business (ASB) states, “Experience the change.” How do we deliver this change? 

Effective communication and presentation skills are fundamental skills required for professionals to succeed. A multitude of presentations and seminars during the MBA programme at ASB give students the confidence to address an audience. Students also undergo a leadership training conducted by former Navy Commanders at Munnar.

Corporate assignments test the ability of young professionals to handle multiple tasks meeting stringent deadlines. At ASB, the large number of assignments in multiple subjects that need to be submitted within specific timelines train students to meet the rigours of professional life. Various student-run clubs, programmes and activities offer them adequate exposure to conceptualization, planning and implementation. 

Unlike other programmes in arts and sciences, a well-delivered MBA programme needs to be taught by a right mix of faculty with industry as well as academic backgrounds. ASB has the perfect mix of academicians and industry veterans to deliver a distinctive programme that enables our students to settle seamlessly into corporate assignments. The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Cell of ASB offers initiation and training to students who have aspirations to become entrepreneurs.

A survey of students indicated that the most important reason for joining an MBA programme is to secure a good job in an organization of repute. ASB carries out a large number of activities to prepare the students to face job interviews successfully. To improve the general awareness, every student gets an English newspaper in the morning. Half an hour is kept aside every morning for newspaper reading. A specialized training company is hired to offer aptitude test training to clear the first hurdle of job interviews. Our faculty with years of industry-experience coaches the students to perform well in group discussions and personal interviews. All these activities help students of ASB to stand apart when compared to students of other institutions in the region.

The best judges of a good MBA programme are the recruiters who offer placements to graduates of the business school. Over the years we have found that over 95% of our graduates find placements in reputed organizations. Companies that hire our graduates return year after year to the campus, which is an indication of the performance of our students there. 

We welcome you to join the group of ASBians who have found this two-year journey stimulating, exciting and rewarding.

Are you ready to take the next step toward your future career?
