Dr. K. Raghu N Prabhakar,Director Management education in India has been improving consistently for the last couple of decades but the mushrooming of below standard B-schools and other management education institutions have made a dent in the quality and integrity of the Indian management education stratum. Even amidst this, one pioneering educational institution that strives to offer the best value for money education to their students is Auroras Business School. The resolve of the institute to never compromise on the quality of their teaching has helped Auroras to develop into a recognized and reputed B-School in India. The innovative teaching-learning practices have also helped the institute to be constantly ranked amongst the top B-Schools in the country.

Operating for a Bigger Cause

The institute strives to create global management professionals with a human touch. We are also aiming to be a globally recognized business school in the next 10 years and as of now, we are one of the topmost business schools in Telangana. We update our curriculum on a yearly basis with industry inputs. We also have a large number of faculty who are working in the industry. This is helping us to offer industry-oriented education to our students so that they become readily employable.

We have various international exposure programs including annual international study tours and internships to give our students global exposure. We are members of very prestigious
professional associations and organizations and that is also helping our students to be job-ready. We were one of the first institutes to introduce the trimester educational set up and we conduct various kinds of examinations or other activities on a regular basis at the campus. We have also been able to integrate multiple specializations and this helps us to offer a better holistic education to the students".

“Auroras has a large number of students that want to become entrepreneurs and to help these students, the B-School sends their students to various industry bodies that allow them to be a better entrepreneur”

Helping Students Realize their Career Aspirations

To ensure that, we offer an interactive mode of teaching and we also include case analysis and group discussions on a regular basis. Even amidst the pandemic, we were able to still impart quality education through various online mediums and now, we are using dual medium education to train our students. We have also allowed our students to do their summer internships online to ensure their safety. At Auroras, final placement is offered to all the students that are keen on getting employed. We have got strong industry connections and we also arrange industry-institute meets on a regular basis.
We also have a strong placement cell that understands the career aspirations of our students and help them reach those goals. We have various MOUs with industry bodies such as CII, National HRD Network, Deloitte, HMA as well as various other job portals and training centers and this plays a crucial role in offering our students effective pre-placement training. Apart from this, we also have tie-ups with IIM Ahmedabad and various other international educational institutions".
