Guest Sessions at CSB

At CSB, we believe that classroom learning should encompass knowledge from both the industrial business world as well as current theoretical principles. Our students will have the unique opportunity to interact with subject matter experts, industry stalwarts and exemplary individuals from non-traditional backgrounds through exclusive guest lectures. These sessions are meant to add value to all-round development and thinking capabilities of our students. This is also an opportunity for students to expand their network and build valuable industry relationships. The guest lectures for the previous batches are encapsulated below:
