Director's Message

Congratulations on choosing SRM to study for your degree!

If I were to describe SRM Institute of Science & Technology and the School of Management in one sentence, I would say that:

“We are a student-oriented, teaching-focused, research-based, top-quality learning institution and international centre of excellence in professional practice.”

In today’s world where you can “Google” vast amounts of factual knowledge, you cannot “Google” good judgement, wisdom, creativity, and innovation, leadership, communication skills, team-working abilities, global awareness, or personal values related to ethical decision-making. Tolerance for ambiguity, embracing diversity of thought and culture – these are not learnt on the Internet. The “7Ps” of a true Professional, being: Positive, Prepared, Persistent, Patient, Precise, Polite and Punctual, – these are learnt through extensive practice and the application of sound principles that rest on strong conceptual foundations.

In addition to helping you master the critical tools of analysis, concepts, and constructs in different contexts within your chosen field of study, we shall stress the importance of synthesizing and integrating knowledge across functions and academic disciplines so that you can fully apply what you know in the practical “real world” by having a satisfying and rewarding job, or moving on to study further in a world-class terminal degree programme.

We will support you in developing your individual “soft skills” in personal communication, teamwork, and global awareness. In today’s world ‘Emotional Intelligence’ and ‘Global Awareness’ are equally important as your ‘Cognitive Intelligence’ and your comfort with digital technology.

          Together, we are preparing you for responsible positions of  
          leadership. We are an important part of a 21st century innovative, 
          fully-rounded, and well- equipped, world-class University of
          continuous learning and improvement, at the cutting edge of
          global higher education.

Our professionally qualified faculty members are not only scholars and professors but include experienced practitioners in their chosen field of study and action. Our expert and caring staff is here to help you learn, succeed and grow – and also to have fun!

Embrace this unique opportunity to reflect, absorb, stretch, create, innovate, network with friends and cultures from around the world, re-tool, repackage, and reinvent yourself. Prepare yourself now for a lifetime of learning and personal development, so that you can realise your full potential, attain your professional goals, make a positive difference to society and the environment, and achieve true contentment.

Thank you for choosing SRM Institute of Science & Technology School of Management, where you can enjoy reaching for your peak of ability, and working toward the summit of your ambition.

  Best Wishes for a wonderful ‘Student Experience’ at SRM !
