Industry speakers

3 tier management

The Advisory Board comprises a large number of senior management professionals, who provide guidance at the strategic level. Next, we have a very active Governing Council, the members of which are also in the Advisory Board, which manages the quality of offering and ensures that our commitments to all stakeholders are met. Lastly,

we have an Advisory Council for each specialization which ensures that the curriculum is current and relevant to industry requirements. Such a robust structure ensures at all times that we are industry focused and we supply industry ready professionals.

Industry speakers

Almost once every month, and sometimes even more frequently, we call very senior practitioners from the Industry to interact with our students. During these discussion, the senior executives (mainly CXOs and very senior management professionals) to share their experiences and engage in discussion with our students on a range of topics from strategy to corporate governance.

Such an interaction ensures that our students get a pulse of industry and orient their thinking and learning to be industry ready.

Visiting faculty

CBS has as one of its mottos, Where professionals are professors. Most of the specialization courses is taught by practising management professionals.

One would definitely be enlightened learning advertising from the Managing Director and Director of companies such as Ogilvy and JWT, rather than academicians who have studied and maybe consulted on advertising. That is our belief and we have consistently been improving our faculty base to include people from large Corporate houses.
