Challenges of the highly competitive markets necessitate that you always remain ready to encounter the future. “The world has 6 billion people and counting. We need 500 million people become better leaders so that billions can benefit”, said John P Kotter, Konosuke Matsushita Professor of Leadership, Emeritus at the Harvard Business School while launching Kotter International a few years ago. We, at Rajalakshmi School of Business (RSB) are committed to developing leaders of tomorrow, who through their knowledge and its application will build a better world for the future generations.

All good schools have been known to deliver extraordinary value to the world through outstanding faculty and quality students working in an environment that inspires new ideas to address the vital needs of the industry and the society. RSB Chennai is not going to be an exception to that. The current century has witnessed a paradigm shift in the thinking on the part of business schools, with the focus shifting from developing general managers to facilitate development of leaders, who would exhibit the ability to understand the requirement of the future. In the words of Steve Jobs, “You can’t just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they will want something new.” Excelling in such a dynamic environment demands, from business schools, a completely different approach of imparting knowledge, which only the very best can offer to its students. At RSB Chennai, we will continuously discover impending needs by implementing ideas that may look unreasonable today, but will be realistic requirements of the future.

At RSB we work towards transforming students through a judicious mix of classroom teaching, tutorials and practical sessions.

At RSB, you will participate and learn through a series of activities both inside and outside the classroom within the realms of the curriculum, thereby improving your employability. These activities will help integrate theoretical concepts of management with practical learning at every stage. The school will provide you a platform to showcase your talent by participating in various intercollege activities, present research papers and case studies in national and international seminars to be worthy brand ambassadors of the school.

The exceptionally brilliant pool of faculty at RSB will guide, motivate, and show you the path towards realization of your ultimate dream. With such a high quality faculty drawn from India and some of the top foreign business schools, I am sure your learning will become highly purposive. I encourage you to embark on the journey of an unparalleled learning experience – an experience that looks beyond the narrow confines of text books to actively co-create, with you, an environment where leaders are developed and career aspirations fulfilled.

Come and get a feel of the RSB experience transforming students through a judicious mix of classroom teaching, tutorials and practical sessions.
