Chennai Business School

Full Description

Chennai Business School (CBS) is an institution dedicated to creating ‘industry-ready’ managerial talent. CBS offers training in India’s exponentially growing verticals –Marketing, Information Technology, Retail, Finance and Financial Services and International Management.  CBS also offers focused learning in strategic areas of management – Human Resources and Marketing & Communications.

One of the first management institutions to be established and run by professionals from the industry, CBS started in 2006, offers Programs that are supported by contemporary infrastructure, industry-orientation, latest teaching methodologies and high-profile faculty, both from academia and industry.


The USP of Chennai Business School is its Industry Interface. This is reflected initially in:
-   The 3-tier management system
-   Industry speakers
-   External
3-tier management
The Advisory Board comprisesa 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 sessions, the senior executives (mainly CXOs and very senior management professionals) 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”. A large percentage 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.
Full-Time CoursesCBS offers six full-time Programs in Management comprising around 1,100 hours of contact classes complemented by hands-on training to increase the understanding of the way the world of business works. The students have a competitive edge as they are exposed to sessions with professionals having relevant on-ground experience. This equips the students to perform in their chosen careers right from day one.The course curriculum generally covered in a 2-year MBA program is delivered in a period of one year making it a highly intensive and challenging program.Executive Program for Family-Managed Businesses
