Muscat, Jun 14: Thiruvananthapuram-based, NRI-promoted Asian School of Business (ASB) is wooing prospective students from Muscat. Admission for the post-graduate programme in management (PGPM) is open for the second batch of 60 students.
“The two-year full-time PGPM is the flagship course of ASB. All the 30 students of the first batch have been placed on paid internship with leading companies in India and abroad. Now, we are set to receive the second batch of 60 students for the PGPM, and the selection process is already in progress.
“Academic excellence and aptitude for management career will be the prime consideration for admission.
For candidates from abroad, GMAT will be the basis for initial short-listing. For those from India, CAT score or in-house entrance test of ASB will be the criteria for admission,” NRI George M. Thomas said here in a statement.
A few seats are earmarked exclusively for NRI and foreign students.
ASB will also be offering a fast track, one-year (part-time) PGPM, primarily for IT professionals.
Further, a unique academic programme is being planned for entrepreneur-managers from business families.
