Message from the President

On the eve of every academic season, I cannot help but think about introducing new pedagogies and becoming innovated in content and teaching/learning methods. Though this is easier said than done, we never fail to make our best efforts.

The role of academic environment and the experiences of the faculty are critical aspects in management education. Every management school grooms students either to manage organizations or become entrepreneurs. There is nothing like a typical organization. Each organization has a certain character, size and its own challenges. You cannot groom students in a less challenging environment and ask them to work in a high-octane atmosphere.

The point is, there is a need for reviewing the curriculum on a continual basis. The training provided must help students acquire relevant knowledge, reflect on their strengths and weaknesses and move up the learning curve. Our task also includes instilling confidence in them by helping them convert their weaknesses into strengths and providing necessary knowledge and exposure to help them understand the external environment.

At NSB, every minute is precious. Everyone strives to deliver our promise to make you more valuable.
