Alumni Testimonials

Agasia Prakash MBA Class of 2023

TSM played an integral part in my life shaping me and my career. Through the community learning and teaching pedagogies, I understood who I am, where I stand, and where I should. Such a wonderful place where each of our thoughts is valued, recognised, and reformed. When I joined in Temenos, I was in a state of confusion about how much MBA would help me there. I realised how my deep understanding of the finance concepts which I learnt in TSM helps me grasp the things quickly while applying in the workplace. I take this opportunity to thank all my professors who travelled with me, moulded, guided, and shaped me in my MBA journey.

TSM is a great place to learn. The opportunities to learn from good quality teachers, the rich dose of student led activities like Synergy, live-project opportunities, etc. and learning engagements – inside and beyond the classrooms are great experiences to remember and cherish. My suggestion to the management students would be that they must make use of these learning opportunities during their days in TSM – to explore, engage and experience campus life. The transition from college to a corporate world is a bit challenging. However, if we choose to work hard and deliver our promise to customers (internal or external), we learn faster and lead better. My appreciation and gratitude to this great institution for all those wonderful opportunities and learning experiences.”

“Great institutions provide engaging experiences, connections, and confidence to take on the challenges in work life. My experiences at TSM and the community life exemplify this on many counts. A choice to move around different courses, exchanges, and connections within and beyond the walls of a classroom are opportunities of a lifetime that every learner must leverage to the best. The power of feedback, peer support, coaching from competent peers and teachers, and networking, are significant opportunities to explore in college days. TSM will always remain a special place for me and our team. Because it’s where we found ourselves, we began to believe that success is teamwork. We continue to nurture our friendship, grow together, and looking forward to sustaining our enterprise for generations.”

“Moments spent as college students are fleeting. The classes, interactions, and experience with teachers all may seem more abstract and theoretical. However, the imperatives to learn and understand business management fundamentals, organizational behaviour, marketing management, etc., are undeniable. As we ventured into the world of business, our experience connecting to and delivering to customer’s delight, our learnings and experiences embedded us with a rich dose of humility and perseverance, which continue to be our guidepost as we interact with our stakeholders. We continue to cherish and live our friendships, our partnerships, beyond TSM and we are grateful as ever, to this wonderful institution.”

“The foundation of our entrepreneurial journey, the Optisol journey, all got initiated in our TSM days when we had the opportunity to interact, the community life and our learnings from our teachers on campus and the relationships that blossomed beyond thereafter. The moments that we spent at TSM, the memories and the connections that we created and the love for learning, all continue to ignite passion among us, our Optisol team, to create impactful experience to all our customers and stakeholders.”

“TSM is a place close to my heart for all learnings, gratitude to our teachers, who we have sought on for clarifications, confidence-building, and the overall community life at TSM. Career choices are not made in a day and it takes time to understand what we really want. The exposure and engagement that I had at TSM gave me more confidence to pursue unchartered waters (Sales), with vigor. It’s a big world out there and there is a place for all of us. However, what it really takes is to commit yourself to continuously learn, foster a team, and learn to leverage networking, seek support, and pay it forward. By best wishes to all the management graduates of TSM and gratitude to this great institution.”


Well, It’s my privilege to share my experience at Thiagarajar School Of Management. I feel like I have been more closely associated with my new family at TSM because I don’t feel away from my home. TSM is a very good platform to acquire the necessary skills required in a corporate world. In the Southern region I personally feel this is the best place to procure knowledge as well as skills.

Life @ TSM is a life time experience. Every morning we get to learn new stuff may it be regarding academics or extracurricular. Faculties are a real asset to the institution, always ready to enrich us with knowledge. Student driven clubs, various guest lectures, cultural events keep us engaged. The LIBRARY has got so much resource; I wish I could grasp all knowledge in this short span of time (hardly 700days).

The Lush green campus at TSM provides a platform where students have great opportunity to adapt to their knowledge and talent skills. The exposure to different activities and clubs is making one more stronger to meet the new corporate world as a good professional. Overall it’s a complete package of fun and studies and I am glad to be a part of the TSM family.
