About

Athena School of Management

Tucked away in an oasis of calm within the urban sprawl of Mumbai you’ll find the Athena School of Management: one of India’s premier business schools that is part of a new generation of higher education institutions spearheading the country’s development into a global economic force. Located in the Powai area of the city, where you’ll find tree-lined boulevards, the innovative startups of ‘Powai Valley’ and elegant boutique stores, the school’s modern campus is tailored towards producing India’s next generation of business leaders.

In Powai there are over 300 corporate institutions including Deloitte, JP Morgan, Kellogg’s, Sony Pictures and Bayer India. This subsequently means that there are a burgeoning number of executive and corporate positions available for graduates of Athena, who are perfectly placed to transfer the corporate skills they learned here straight into Mumbai’s thriving business world. And, of course, there is so much more to Mumbai than big business. It is the home of Bollywood cinema and one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the country; rich in culture and full of life. Living and studying in Mumbai is truly an experience like no other.

There are a wide range of management programs on offer at Athena School of Management with a particular focus on dual degrees offered at the likes of Kedge Business School in France, Albany School of Business in the United States and Rennes Business School, also in France. Meanwhile, the flagship Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGPM) offers modules encompassing all areas of modern business as well as the opportunity for internships at prestigious companies in India, the US, UK and Europe. Given Athena’s close proximity to the thriving Mumbai business community, it is these kinds of opportunities which will put their graduates at the head of the queue when it comes to securing the job of their dreams. And that is very apt in the City of Dreams that is Mumbai itself.

Athena follows an end user based design and structure for our courses. The course content is design based on input and industry oriented from the corporate perspective. Athena visiting faculties are from the corporate sector and all of them are having good industry experience. We believe that this high level of exposure and training by luminaries of the corporate world would extensively prepare our students to meet the future challenges.

The pedagogy and class room delivery style is case study and project based rather than a traditional teacher – student monologue approach. We follow the Socrates Methodology of teaching where 20% of your session is taught by the faculty and 80% is based on Interactive Sessions, Questioning by the students, Debating and Discussions. This places students in real life business scenarios where they need to take decisions in real-time.

In a world where in most cases there are no rights and wrongs, our faculty will act as directing staff who will act as interlocutors and facilitators for the students, so as to help them develop into responsible future managers who can make decisions and take accountability and consequences associated for the same. There are several specialist sub modules in our courses which include subjects such as Visual Merchandising, Risk Management, Lifestyle Design, Corporate Communications, Mass Affluency Dynamics, Situational Strategy & Awareness, Product Delivery Management, to name a few.
