DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE

To empower individuals intellectually, enable them to develop their full potential by enhancing competencies, culture, and commitment, and contribute to the achievement of professional excellence.

This was a mission launched a few adventurous years ago, a mission that says little but means much more to the people behind it, a mission that encompasses the dreams of our future generations, that will help them achieve skills and abilities to withstand the tests of time and adversity, and a mission that we personally believe in with passion.

I am glad that you too have taken the decision to pursue higher studies and prepare yourself for a fruitful career. The road ahead is not smooth and charted anymore. You need to realise that it is a jungle out there and the correct tools are required to carve out one's own path. The emerging knowledge economy requires special skills, relevant training, and the correct exposure to international practices. Alvin Toffler describes what lies beyond as Terra Incognita -- the uncharted landscape of tomorrow. It is up to the individual to map his or her route to success. You have to excel in this increasingly competitive environment by equipping yourself with the skills and abilities that shall last you a lifetime.

We pride ourselves on preparing men and women to combine rigorous business and technical skills along with a broader appreciation for the economic, social, and political factors that shape the global environment. We want to produce leaders who make a difference to their organisation, and to their communities. Our faculty strive to open your mind, sharpen your curiosity, and to instill in you an appetite for acquiring new knowledge and experiences throughout your career.

Our hope is that in pursuing your course with us, you will take advantage of everything that APEX has to offer, and that you will take the intellectual and professional excitement of your experience here with you in all you do for the rest of your life. You too have to make a commitment as you embark on a journey with us bring with you a desire to learn, to question, to imbibe, and to continually challenge yourself towards greater heights. The result will be a mutual symbiosis that shall prepare you for the road ahead.

I welcome you to take part in the experience called APEX. Enroll ready to learn . . . Graduate ready to succeed!

DEAN'S MESSAGE

The Academy for Professional Excellence educates managers and professionals: individuals who possess the talent to lead and the capacity to learn throughout their lives. The need for such people has never been greater, nor the opportunity more remarkable. The nature of business is changing, driven by powerful forces of globalization, technological innovation, and intense competition. These forces are creating a future filled with unique promise. As we begin a new century, the students graduating from APEX will stand poised to make a real difference in the world.

The Management, Technical, and Vocational education offered at APEX is a transforming experience. Our excellent faculty base stimulates intellectual and personal growth. I use the word "transforming" deliberately, for transformation is indeed what happens to our students. Everything about this Institution works to create an unparalleled environment for learning and growth.

The APEX classroom is an amazing place to be in - simultaneously demanding, fun, intense, and always dynamic. Our variety of teaching methods fuses analysis and action. We aim to bring the challenges of business alive, so that the students learn how to tackle difficult & complex problems - by probing, discussing and integrating a wide array of information, while working together. Students learn what it feels like to exercise judgment, make decisions, and take responsibility. In doing so, they sharpen their skills of effective communication.

We are looking for students with the highest standards of integrity and respect for others, having personal responsibility, possessing an appetite for hard work, and who understand that leading is a privilege.

Thank you for your interest in APEX. I invite you to learn more about APEX through this prospectus, the APEX website, and by a visit to our campus. If you think there is a fit between your aspirations and ours, I strongly encourage you to apply.

STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

Arun Bhutra

The degree has been one of the major thrusts that took my career forward. The program not only has the challenge of rigorous theoritical topics, but it also makes a conscious effort towards practical implementation. As a working professional, I enjoyed an unparalleled benefit, as I could practice what I studied. The faculty at Apex is one of the best, because here are instructors from the industry who know things that books wouldn't teach!

Swagata Rath

APEX has been a second home for me for three years of my life. The love, care and affection I have received have never made me homesick though I was living alone in Kolkata away from my hometown. I have learnt many things from my teachers and colleagues and would not have been a better person without this experience.

Tushar Gandhi

I have learnt more from my interactions here, whether they be with the staff, with other students, or with anyone here, than I have by spending time alone with my textbooks. The variety of people and situations that I have faced have made me a complete person and ready to accept any challenge that life might throw upon me. Your experience here would not be complete without participating in the myriad of activities that are provided, or without being part of various committees, or without being involved... after all, you decide what you want to become and how much you want to learn.

Jayshree De

I am very proud to have been associated with Apex and my experience has been a very rewarding one. I would like to especially mention the lecturers who made the course so interesting and challenging. Most importantly, I thank you for your continuous support and commitment to the students, above all else. I will never forget the gestures that you had extended to us during and even after we had completed the course.
