I am happy to welcome you – the 14th batch of students of our MBA program – to the portals of Gnanam School of Business. GSB has an enviable track record of delivering quality management education. The faculty team share a deep commitment to develop and transform students into managers with a positive thinking attitude and equip them with the highest level of professional skills leading to excellence in execution at work.
As the pandemic spread over the last two years, we can take pride in the resilience shown by our students and our faculty who quickly moved our delivery mode online and kept up the digital engagement with our students without wasting time. Thankfully we can now put that experience behind us and look forward to class room engagement completely from now on.
Our Taylors and Druckers batches have shown exemplary strides in their performance and achievements on campus. Student research papers have been accepted and presented at research conferences at IIM Ahmedabad and Shillong, MICA, Ahmedabad and in Gautam Buddha and SRM Universities. One of our students has won the coveted EDII Young Entrepreneur of Tamilnadu award from the Government. Students participated in management competitions at Sastra University and emerged victorious while competing with other leading b-schools in the country. They deserve our praise and appreciation for their preparation and participation.
GSB had a record number of companies visiting campus for placements and we can take pride in the fact that all our eligible students have been placed in several blue-chip companies. Summer internships which just concluded have also been a value-adding experience for our students.
It has been my privilege to lead the academic team at Gnanam Business School and to interact and motivate the dedicated set of students to perform at their best! The success that we enjoy when we see them placed in good corporate jobs makes our efforts worthwhile!
I join my team of faculty and students in welcoming the next batch on campus!
