The Badruka Educational Society, a respected institution with a 73-year legacy, launched the Badruka School of Management (BSM) on Wednesday. This move aims to address the lack of top-tier management education in South India.
Despite the presence of four South Indian institutions in the top 25 of the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), none are from Telangana or Andhra Pradesh. “BSM is our commitment to fill this gap. We aim to cater to the rising needs of Hyderabad, a popular destination for Indian and global businesses,” said Srikishan Badruka, Secretary of the Badruka Educational Society.
The inaugural batch for the AICTE-approved 2-year Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDBM) will start in August at the 14-acre campus in Hyderabad’s Medchal district. Admissions are already underway.
“BSM aims to nurture professionals and entrepreneurs who excel in their fields, uphold ethical values, and contribute to sustainable progress. Our curriculum is tailored to meet the demands of today’s dynamic industries,” added Badruka.
Dr. Prabhu Aggarwal, the School’s Dean and a former VC with Bennett University, NIIT University, and OP Jindal University, shared, “Our vision at BSM is to provide a transformative educational experience that transcends conventional boundaries. Our curriculum integrates real-world challenges, experiential learning, and the latest industry insights.”
The curriculum at BSM combines core management principles with modules tailored to emerging industry demands. These include courses in Entrepreneurship, Design Thinking, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, and Sustainable Business. Specialized tracks in the second year include Finance, Marketing, Strategy, Data Analytics & Digital Technologies, and Innovation & Entrepreneurship.
Beyond academics, BSM is committed to sustainability. The School has integrated eco-friendly practices on campus, including a meditation center and initiatives like waste management and solar paneling, demonstrating BSM’s dedication to fostering an environmentally conscious community.
