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.

"Happy at my son's turnaround at NSB" - Mr. P.V.Sivakumar, Sr. Assistant Editor | "The Hindu - BUSINESS LINE | HYDERABAD, INDIA
My son PVSS Satyananth was just out of his completing Engineering in the Mechanical stream in 2013, and his body language was clear that Engineering (58%) was not his calling. My grave ill health in 2012 seemed to have affected him in his pursuits. He requested, if he could try his hand in MBA. He seemed keen to make a final kill, but we as parents were not keen that he do this course in Hyderabad, as I could not stand his laid back attitude and general disarray of doing things. A similar situation had arisen in his school days and I shifted him to a hostel based school for his 10th class (78%), just outside Hyderabad. He clicked by putting his head down to academics and later performed well scoring 76 % in Intermediate. Though Satyananth had the inherent talent of grasp, he faltered at the decisive moment with his overconfidence. As such, he chose, net surfing â NSB as his mother and I were keen that he put his head down for one final burst of education for a gateway to the job market. My wife Satyavani, a teacher at KendriyaVidyalaya was impressed of the National School of Business ideals, the day she went to join Satyananth on 15-08-13. I had told Satyananth that my recommendation was least expected and his academic testimonials should speak for themselves to the demands of the job market. His attitudinal change and his outlook have changed during his stay at National School of Business, as much as his discipline. We as parents are happy at his turnaround at NSB Bengaluru for he has known the true realm of the increasing demands of the CTC driven job market in the recession period and we thank the Faculty and Mr. Sridhara Murthy from the bottom of our heart for the care and correction they took.
