The white winged wonders, fragile as they are and yet can soar high into the sky scour the world with their friends for adventure and love and bring back myriad stories to share with their young so that they in turn can set to the sky continuing with the cosmic magic of creation”
There are tremendous management lessons in a flock of migratory birds for leadership, team work, spirit for adventure, risk taking, traversing unconventional path, winning every time and finally, never missing to head back with amazing precision. Won’t you want to be part of this exciting world of adventure and personal achievement and soar the skies of success?
Business at the turn of the millennium has become just that, a truly boundaryless quest for adventure with their leaders willing to move to any part of the world, integrate themselves with the region and yet retain their originality and heritage. Asia is playing a pivotal role in determining the shape and direction of the global markets led by the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and leading from the front in the global business scenario. In the changed global economic equation, two most powerful Asian economies China and India are vying for a position of global leadership and business supremacy. The new power structures emerging has put India firmly as a global super power and its managers as the global business leaders highly respected for their maturity and their legendry humility reflecting the ageless heritage.
Against this backdrop, a team of top practitioners and teachers of management have come together to found a modern residential campus of ASBM at an idyllic locale close to the famed Chandaka life sanctuary in the vicinity of Bhubaneshwar, capital of Orissa. ASBM has set up its second residential campus at Hyderabad to further the tradition of excellence achieved at Bhubaneswar. It is situated in a picturesque location nearer to Shamirpet Lake.
ASBM is the result of the long held belief I shared with the institute’s founders that it is quite possible to shape business schools in the private sector that match and even surpass famed IIMs based on passion and superior planning and commitment to a high order of quality. ASBM would be developed as a model institution benchmarking the best b-schools in the world with a clear focus on holistic personality development and master action-leadership akin to the famed Lagaan movie celebrating team spirit and leadership. The ASBM student managers will have strong conviction, high business values and sensitivity towards changing business environment with an entrepreneurial business outlook.
We emphasise learning by experimentation, innovation, speed, right attitude, pragmatism, flexible outlook and continuous learning. Towards the attainment of this mission, we have benchmarked the IIM model of management education on the belief that given the right pedagogy, course curriculum, systems and practices IIMs can be created out of private b-schools.
ASBM is a humble step towards this endeavour. We assure contemporary education, the best life and work values and excellent placement.
I extend a warm welcome to you to become the part of this grand mission and fulfill your cherished dreams.
