At ASB the impact of a well-groomed, impressive personality & effective communication, is well understood, and that directs towards a strong impetus on the overall personality development of the student. In sync with this mindset at ASB, an in-house Center for Skill Development (CSD) has been set up to cater to the captive demands of the corporate.
Towards developing a student to make a successful transition from ‘Campus to Corporate’, the Centre for Skill Development department provides the students with inputs to develop overall employability. In fact, the overall employability is an accumulation of curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular inputs. The curricular courses contribute to knowledge development while the extra-curricular courses enable personality and attitude building; the essential workplace skills are reinforced through experiential work and other course-specific, concentrated modules.
