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.


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.
