"We at EThames believe that in the current fast changing global environment, right management education is three dimensional which makes our college very unique in the world. Most important dimension is imparting latest domain knowledge and for which our faculty is well trained and equipped with latest management tools and industry knowledge. Our partnership with Coursera, ensures that our students and faculty have access to the globally recognized knowledge in all areas of technology, commerce and management."

“Our three dimensional model of education is designed to transform the students into confident, competent and committed professionals.”

The second dimension is understanding prevailing technology environment as the digitisation of operations is sweeping across the world, particularly post pandemic world. Without a good understanding of the underlying technology environment, no one can be successful in effectively managing the operations of any company. Our technology and finance labs give our students access to the latest tools and techniques in these areas. All our students can master the latest technologies by opting for various specialisations like AI, Blockchain, Fintech and Digital Marketing. Every student in the college has a full and free access to entire Coursera catalogue and they can do unlimited number of courses & certifications in the area of their interest.

Many studies have proven that more than 70% of success of any person in any endeavour is attributable to the personal qualities of the individual. This is the third dimension of our model which is very critical for undergraduate students. EThames has designed a 42 module Course in Personal Success which is taught throughout the three years of graduation by specially trained faculty. To help students to practice what is taught in Personal Success course, we
have also introduced a world's first mastermind group for students in the name of "UbuntU". We are bringing to our students what is already very popular across the world for the top business people and senior professionals.

"Our three dimensional model of education is designed to transform the students into confident, competent and committed professionals", says Kali Prasad Gadiraju. The outcome based education at EThames, ensures success for all the students whether they are seeking employment, higher education or entrepreneurship. In partnership with TiE, Hyderabad, T-Hub and IIIT, Hyderabad we have set up an incubation centre for students who wants to pursue entrepreneurship and become job creators.

"We leave no stone unturned in transforming ordinary students into extraordinary business professionals. Instead of solely relying on lecturing, our faculty members use balanced mix of teaching pedagogies such as case teaching, simulations, role plays and project based learning etc., to teach various subjects. In addition, we actively engage students with various academic and non-academic clubs to ensure their holistic growth. Our clubs and internships ensure our students build a robust connect with the industry to not only ensure modernisation of the curriculum but also for outstanding placements", speaks Dr. Kunal Gaurav.
