Innovative, flexible educational facilities like the Executive Suite which is fitted with microphones and global video-conferencing capabilities, enables the students to choose the way they would want to study. Meanwhile, the teaching spaces comprise of numerous lecture halls, flexible seminar rooms, superb conference and ICT facilities, and meeting rooms along with relaxing space, break-out areas and attractive gardens at the heart of the school to achieve an extraordinary student experience.

This is a boon for all the students who are planning to opt for management studies from our school in future.”
The redevelopment has attracted alumni and distinguished academic speakers, enhancing the overall student experience. Moreover, the facilities will now allow the management school to host events such as the Careers Discovery Series (CDS) which will help encourage students to start thinking about future employment earlier than ever, thereby enhancing their degrees with real-world experience and expertise.
