Testimonials from students
“From the hills of Meghalaya to the capital city of Tamilnadu my journey has been fascinating. After graduating with BCom honors with a university rank, I decided to pursue PGDM from LIBA. It was indeed a very wise decision. I was fortunate enough to start on a high note when I won an event organized by the marketing Club of LIBA and then the badminton tournament as a star player of my team. LIBA offers a splendid platform for us to showcase their talents in all walks of life.”
“LIBA has given me the opportunity to strive harder towards my goal and elevate myself out of my comfort zone. The campus never sleeps, and the students are always brimming with excitement. My batchmates are from all parts of the country. I have been fortunate to learn about the diverse cultural heritage from around the country. Born and brought up in Kolkata, I was pretty anxious about how I will survive down south! However, Chennai has been lovely! There are amazing restaurants, beautiful beaches, and happening pubs! The campus is centrally located, and traveling to different parts of Chennai is more than convenient. I have been here for only five months but it already feels like home.”
“Striking distance from Patna to Chennai did not make any difference when I decided to pursue my PGDM from LIBA. After completing my graduation in commerce, I decided to pursue Management Studies from a premier institute, which brought me to LIBA. After bidding goodbye to my family and hometown, I wondered how my journey would be in the coming months. However, the journey is very exciting with the series of events kick-starting from the beginning of the course. Being a part of two clubs at LIBA, I have learned a lot in these few months. LIBA provides many opportunities for every student to showcase their talent life is really beyond awesome at LIBA.”
“As an artist and an aficionado, LIBA has never failed to amaze me with its heterogeneity in orchestrating various episodes for the long journey. Kick-starting from the freshers’ day, life has really been beyond awesome. In fact, I was awarded the prestigious Mr. Fresher award on the freshers’ day, and it has only made my craving stronger to explore new grounds in the future. LIBA in the form of the radius club has succored in fostering philanthropic conduct repressed in oneself. It is undoubtedly the finest place to pursue a career in management and attain a 360-degree evolution. It’s a wonderful opportunity to grow more, to celebrate more, to cherish more, and to encounter a lot more where talent meets recognition.”
“A journey from Mumbai to LIBA Chennai has been much more than just a journey from the financial capital of the country to the cultural capital of South India. It’s a place that makes you discover your inner potential and talents. It is an institute where textbook knowledge is jut a small facet of your learning as the campus is buzzing with co-curricular activities 24×7. Personally, I had a great learning experience, especially in the Marketing club and the Beyond Management Initiative which have immensely helped me in enhancing my verbal and written communication skills which are an integral part of a manager’s personality. Hence, I would say that even though I’m 1200 kms from my home, LIBA doesn’t make me feel so, as it has become my new abode.”

Here, the diverse peer group from across the country with versatile interests has widened my perspectives about my abilities. Professors here are very supportive, the curriculum and exam pattern are uniquely designed to enrich the learning process. My life in LIBA is also full of extracurricular activities honing my skills. No wonder why they call it here as LIBA – Life Is Beyond Awesome.”
