Good going KSOM !!

Abhishek Mohanty

Associate Director at PricewaterhouseCoopers Pvt. Ltd

On my first ever visit to the KSOM campus, I was rather impressed by how vibrant, open and honest the Student community was. I loved the fact that they were only too willing to engage in professional banter! I think the Conclave is an excellent idea - it brings academia and industry closer. And maybe going forward, the institute may could even get the Conclave Speaker(s) and interested Students acquainted with each other well before the day of the Conclave - perhaps through a Q&A on the topic in question - so that the students take away more than just that one day's worth of an interaction.

Nirmalya Pal

Director, DebriN Synergy

By the virtue of my profession and the services that we offer to many top B Schools and Universities, I often need to visit campuses across the nation. But this visit to KSOM for the 7th National Marketing Conclave was one of the best experiences so far. While it was professionally managed to the micro level, the human touch, the warmth in the hospitality could always be felt. Must also admit that the organizing committee managed the conference in a way where the conditions for being an “enabler”, distinct from a “speaker” were clearly established. In the process, the learning was not just limited to the students-participants, but was for everyone. Great Show. My unconditional support remains, whenever needed.

Anamika Dasgupta Sharma

Coach & Facilitator | Founder of The Potter's Earth Career Advisors

Every interaction with students of KSOM is a wonderful experience. It is refreshing to meet with a bunch of young minds who are open to inputs and equally participative with their own thoughts, opinions and views. With the right blend of curiosity, aspiration and courage, these students will prove to be an asset to any organization. My best wishes and support to the faculty who are doing such an awesome job with this young lot!

Shubhayu Sengupta

Senior Vice President, HR Head India, HGS

I had the privilege to be part of the 7th National HR Conclave and share one's experiences on very key and pertinent topics which were part of the agenda for the Conclave. It was an extremely rewarding experience, interacting with a bunch of bright young minds and the dedicated faculty and the management team. The conclave was exceptionally well organized and provided a great platform to get the industry and the academic world together

Dr. B.B Mohapatra

Director of Nursing, Odisha

We really appreciate the way KSOM conducted the training program for the Nursing personnel. The faculty trainers from KSOM provided different approaches and new ways to train with lots of new ideas and skills.

Mr Subhashish Das

VP HR – Berger Paints

A student who graduates from KSOM is equipped with three unique skill sets that makes him or her a complete package. The first and foremost is the emphasis of the institution to strongly imbibe ethical and socially responsible practices - through the various training and learning modules. Secondly, the focus on active learning, simulation and industry exposure ensures that a student possesses real and relevant employable skills - which act as a motivation for hiring firms as it brings down their overall cost of training. Finally, a healthy relationship between students & faculty members help in smooth working on various inclusive innovation projects that are actively being pursued by the institution. Over the years, having hired students of KSOM, and also being mentor to few others, I have been really impressed to notice these skills among most students, and would therefore recommend all prospective employers to try out this institution of learning.

Mr. Subhranshu S Acharya

General Manager, SIDBI, BBSR

KSOM, KIIT University has been our partner in conducting training for officers from all grades for more than 3 years now. They always keep surprising us with new pedagogical approaches and contents.
