The rich heritage of Asian Business School (ABS), Noida is apparent from its extensive alumni base, with innovation and excellence driving new initiatives in the field of business education. Even with the Covid-19 crisis, classes at the Institute have not been impacted at all. Everyday online sessions have helped continue the learning process, using softwares like Impartus, Zoom and Webex. ABS faculty members are available 24/7 through call and WhatsApp, maintaining social distance, yet guiding students ahead in their curriculum.
Speaking on the ongoing challenge Mr. Saurabh Sharma, Director of the institute said, “student development is our key agenda. We are completely aware of our responsibility as a B-school towards all our stakeholders. In the prevailing situation, I would like to say that proactive and innovativeness is the need of the hour and we have proved that in this challenging time. We are engaging with our students through our digital platforms. Every student who has chosen us has made a choice, and every parent who has sent their ward to us for education places great trust in us. We are absolutely committed towards it.”
Such efforts strongly reinforce ABS Noida’s recognition as one of the best management institutes in the country. No wonder that ABS Noida has been ranked 7th Amongst ‘Top B-Schools of Excellence’ by CSR-GHRDC and it stands tall as an innovative centre of academic excellence and one of the top B-Schools in India for PGDM, duly recognized and approved by AICTE Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India.
With 25+ years of experience and one of the best faculty in place, the institute is global in every sense. ABS, Noida has several international exchange programs for students and faculty. What sets ABS apart from the rest is the strong alumni network worldwide, eminent faculty members from diverse fields and 300+ industry recruiters.
Fostering creativity and collaboration
This premier institute has been providing 360-degree learning to its students and supporting them with a robust placement program since its inception. The outstanding placement record speaks highly of Asian Business School’s initiatives that focus on the latest trends to hone students’ skills and make them industry-ready. To achieve this end, ABS has a dedicated department called Corporate Resource Centre (CRC) which gives utmost importance to assist its students in getting suitable placements after the successful completion of their studies.
Nurturing entrepreneurial mindset
Asian Business School believes in fostering an entrepreneurial mindset among its PGDM students and for this purpose it has established the Entrepreneurship Development and Incubation Centre (EDIC). ABS’s EDIC aims to enable the students to be more creative and self-confident in taking rational risk in starting an enterprise and encourage innovative business start-ups and facilitate them through research and consultancy.
EDIC conducts Entrepreneurship Development Programmes for developing entrepreneurial skills enabling students to take up entrepreneurship as a career choice. It also organizes guest lectures, Awareness Campaigns, Seminars & Workshops, Quizzes and Business Plan Competitions for entrepreneurship development.
Shaping the flag-bearers of tomorrow
Asian Business School, Noida further supports its students with the Corporate Resource Centre (CRC). CRC, right from day one, not only assesses a student’s competency and skill gap, but also creates an individual development plan for each of them that best fits his/ her career.
ABS Noida has an immaculate record of operating with 100% quality placements. With the world anguished by a pandemic, placements for graduating students have been a huge concern. Yet, this year as of now, 100% of students have already been placed with more than 300 companies visiting the campus, with Rs 16.37 lakhs being the highest package offered. These include reputed national and multinational companies from sectors such as research and advisory, manufacturing, FMCG and retail to mention a few.
The visiting companies recruited ABS students in top functional domains like marketing and sales, finance and financial services, human resources, operation, business analytics, retail, and information tech.
Although the placement process was disrupted due to Covid-19, placement for the remaining students are going on remotely through online interviews. This has helped many ABS students get placed even during this unforeseen lock-down period. It goes without saying that in the coming years, ABS Noida will continue to equip its graduates with all the professional and personal skills required to ace in their fields.
The B-school also rewards meritorious students with suitable scholarships. In order to not delay the future plans of students any further, all admissions related procedures for ABS PGDM programs have been shifted online completely. Aspirants are already appearing in the admission process through Zoom and Skype.
