Business School

Adi Shankara Business School, the Department of Management Studies takes pride in being part of a 70-year-old legacy that believes education is life. In ASBS management learning is a continuous process and we strive to ensure that what is learned remains with the participants for a lifetime. Since its inception in 2004, the School has worked hard to offer progressive, research-led management education while being firmly rooted in its ideologies. The Business School is located in the idyllic, environment-friendly campus of Adi Shankara Institute of Engineering and Technology. It is run by the Adi Sankara Trust under the patronage of Sri Sri Jagadguru Sankaracharya of Sringeri Sarada Peetham.

We at Adi Shankara Department of Management Studies firmly believe that theory and practice are two sides of the same coin, which makes sustained learning possible. While theoretical knowledge teaches the students the technicalities of a subject, experiential learning leads to a deeper understanding of a concept. We try to ensure that our participants learn and apply their knowledge, inside and outside the classroom, without adding extra months or years to their studies.

Here in ASBS, the MBA participants are not merely acquiring knowledge within a narrow and constrained classroom settings but they apply the gained knowledge to real world business challenges through hands-on practice and proof test the accumulated pool of knowledge.  The participants go beyond the four walls and experience what business leaders endure and learn the crux of business as they manage different facets like time management, stress management, managing finance and group dynamics through our unique programs like Aswamedha, Bizthon, One Day Sale, Campus to Corporate as well as the student chapter activities of ISTD and KMA aimed to kindle the spirit of social awareness among the business school participants.
