According to Ancient Greek Mythology, Athena (or Pallas Athena) was the daughter of Zeus. Athena is the Greek Goddess of Wisdom, Courage & Inspiration.
In today’s rapidly changing economic scenario, it is not surprising that corporate India too, is on a constant vigil for identifying and inducting young leaders who posses Wisdom, Courage & Inspiration, to achieve, inspire & lead their organisations. Hence the name Athena was selected by us as the manifestation of our mission! The Name of the Institution is the “Athena School of Management”.
Our vision is to create young leaders for the corporate sector who are equipped to handle the myriad challenges thrust upon them. We plan to mould them into “employable assets” for their future employers rather than “raw liabilities”. In order to do this we have brought in a high degree of corporate interface and seek guidance from Corporate Leaders in designing both the course content and course delivery Style.
Our Motto is “Consilio Et Animis” which is Latin for “By Wisdom & Courage"
The two year MBA (UGC Recognised) + (PGPM) focuses on creating future corporate leaders. The two year programme will offerintense education, interlocution, introspection and discovery, at the end of the programme student will emerge as a leader keenly taking decisions, actions and initiatives and achieving organizational goals"By Wisdom and Courage"
We follow 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. OurVisiting 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 Methodologyof 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.
