AMITY BUSINESS SCHOOL

Vision

Amity Business School, Amity University, Madhya Pradesh is committed to create business leaders through its innovative programmes, dedicated research work and thought leadership.

Mission

To focus on inventive education by offering practical, innovative, research oriented and technology driven programmes.

Overview

Amity Business School was established in 2011. The main focus of ABS is to develop professional manpower for the Industry. Development of cutting edge technologies, imparting high quality education and conducting research in forefront areas are the main features of the Institute.

The institute has a lush green campus in historical Gwalior city with modern amenities for students where they can pursue academic and extracurricular activities. At ABS, we focus on holistic development of students. The pedagogy followed at ABS is based on experiential learning where the students get a chance to practice the various facets of management. Students are encouraged in building innovation, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit so as to become competent professionals and future business leaders.

The programmes have a rigorous academic schedule that includes case studies, presentations, assignments, exams, research papers and live projects. The core focus on practical learning and instilling employability skills creates the difference for this institute.

Teaching Pedagogy

The faculty members at Amity Business School have entrenched belief in imparting the management education in truly innovative and experimental manner by adopting a proper mix of modern and conventional teaching methods. We utilize the advanced teaching methods like: FLIP method, Z to A approach, Entrepreneurship based learning, Gamification and Live case studies, along with the conventional methods such as Brainstorming, Group discussions and Role plays.

Foreign Business Languages

ABS firmly believes that knowledge of Foreign Business Languages is essential in the global corporate world of today. It thus offers Foreign Business Language courses and every student is required to opt for one such language compulsorily. Apart from giving weight age in the evaluation system, a separate certificate of having elementary / working knowledge of language is also issued to successful candidates. The coverage of each language ensures its business applications so that the student can effectively converse and correspond in that language on various issues related to business management.

Business Communication & Behavioral Science

We have added Business Communication and Behavioral Science as a compulsory course for our management graduates. We emphasize and understand the relevance of these soft skills and correct behavior as part of total personality for a business manager today. These value added courses provide the just right blend of both aspects to increase our students’ acceptability and adjustment in the corporate world.

Programmes and Activities

Today's professionals are required to be generalists and not just specialists, leaders and not just managers, thinkers and not just problem solvers. Keeping this thought in mind ABS has evolved diversified set of activities, which are embedded into the academic programmes ensuring to impart the optimal mix of theory and practice for overall enrichment of the students. Following is the brief about such programmes and activities.

ABS-Think express

Think Express is a student driven activity carried out in order to make students get familiar with emerging trends in business world, and the economic environment of the country, as well as, the whole world. It also enhances the communication skills of the students.ABS Think Express is conducted fortnightly.

Personality Development Sessions

At ABS, the personality development sessions are aimed at developing students into exceptional communicators, negotiators and eventually leaders.  Irrespective of the industry chosen for work, the basic skills required to do the job in a professional environment stay the same, that’s why it is important for students to learn, excel and hone communication and leadership skills. Our personality development sessions successfully fulfill those needs, by designing the programs which:

 
  • Improve communication and leadership skills of the students.
  • Complement the academic program and the student's long-term career objectives.
  • Is diverse and flexible enough to meet the changing needs of the marketplace.
  •  Ensures continuous monitoring for improvements.S
 

Skill Development Sessions

The skills a student must imbibe are akin to the tools of a carpenter. When a carpenter has lousy tools, even the most versatile of carpenters will be held back in the type and quality of structures he can create. However, when equipped with the best tools, the carpenter can now bring any blueprint to life .The skill development sessions at ABS are aimed at enabling the students to achieve greater results in their efforts by expanding or leveling up their skills.

Enhanced Student – Faculty Interactions and Collaborations

ABS realizes the importance of student – faculty interaction and collaboration to boost students’ confidence and help them achieve their desired goals through proper guidance and motivation. In this respect, we have developed 4- tier Mentor –Mentee Concept wherein each student is associated with a faculty mentor who acts as guide and helps a student in not only the academic issues but sometimes at a personal level to ensure a conflict free mind as a ground for learning new skills and knowledge. The problems discussed are noted in weekly meetings held between mentor- mentee and students are provided guidance to reach solutions. 

Industry Visits

To sharpen the skills and provide the students with first hand information about the industry, industrial visits are organized throughout the year. These industrial visits provide students the thorough insight of the working environment and work culture of the organization. These visits help our students to analyze the preference and the rejection of that particular industry.

Internships

There are certain phases of every Intern’s professional development that cannot be effectively taught in the academic environment. These facets can only be learned through direct, on-the-job experience working with successful professionals and experts in the field. The internship programme can best be described as an attempt to institutionalize efforts to bridge the gap between the professional world and the academic institutions. Entire effort in internship is in terms of extending the program of education and evaluation beyond the classroom of a university or institution. The educational process in the internship course seeks out and focuses attention on many latent attributes, which do not surface in the normal class room situations. These attributes are intellectual ability, professional judgment and decision making ability, inter-disciplinary approach, skills for data handling, ability in written and oral presentation, sense of responsibility etc.
The students are encouraged to pursue short term projects in the potential companies where the opportunity for the placement exists. This exercise is observed very keenly by the company to understand the potential of the students and thereby the company becomes keen to offer job opportunity to our students.

Placement Sessions

The placement sessions at ABS feature as a regular activity for final year students. The objectives of placement sessions are:

 
  • To assist students develop/clarify their academic and career interests, and their short and long-term goals through individual counseling and group sessions.
  • To assist students develop and implement successful job search strategies.
  • To act as a resource activity to facilitate the career planning process.
  • To facilitate the link between students, alumni and the employment community.
 

Guest lecture Series

ABS strives to enhance industry interaction with students and bridge the gap between academia and corporate world. We invite thought-leaders, entrepreneurs, executives and policy makers to address students through guest lecture series.

Seminars  and Conferences

Amity Business School has been into organizing National level seminars and conferences every year since its inception, which has received an encouraging participation from the renowned management thinkers, researchers and leaders from industry.

Military Training Camps

In accordance with National Youth Policy, which envisages that the youth of the country should spend at least one fifth of their total time spent in an educational institution, on outdoor activities, ABS sends its all PG students to participate in a seven days compulsory Military Training Camp. The aim is to give the students an exposure to outdoor life in a natural habitat and fulfill some of the objectives as enshrined in the National Youth Policy.
