THE MANAGEMENT TEAM OF CRESTA
Chief Executive Officer, Cresta School of Management, Science & Arts
“There is clearly a dearth of good undergrad colleges in Mysore. Most of them lack the infrastructure and environment needed for the 21st-century learner. And many still work to produce a workforce and not to build responsible citizens who will drive the community ahead.
Cresta, as an institution, defines education and qualification to be distinct entities. At Cresta, education is task-oriented, induces creativity, and is knowledge-driven. We strongly believe that learning is a life-long process and our campus and infrastructure have been designed so as to enhance learning in every possible aspect.
The output is a set of Crestites who are ethical leaders, dynamic entrepreneurs, enthusiastic teachers, powerful speakers, and above all, responsible humans.”
Dr. Rakesh H. M.
Principal, Cresta School of Management, Science & Arts
“Learning is a life-long process that happens not only in some pre-designated place but everywhere. At Cresta we aim to empower our students to grow as individuals with strong open discerning minds with a career perspective, preparing them to make a mark in the society.
Cresta follows a process-oriented way of teaching wherein teachers provide students with the opportunities to explore. The students end up learning as much from this process as from their academics.
The distinctive and firm underlying philosophy of Cresta is to provide Global Education while being steeped in the rich Indian educational tradition and core values. Our emphasis is to create a society of progressive, thinking individuals who will contribute to the intellectual development of the Global Community.“
Dean, Cresta School of Management, Science & Arts
“India has the world largest tertiary-age population with the second-largest graduate talent pipeline globally. However, a major segment of graduates remains unemployable. This gap exists because academia and industry are two different worlds that operate on different pedestals.
At Cresta, we have aligned our curriculum with the requirements of the industry and put emphasis on skill-based education. We are trying to offer workplace exposure through internships, live projects, and corporate interactions so that students get a taste of the world before they finally step out of college.
At Cresta, we are concerned with not only teaching, research and consulting, but we actively engage in creating an environment where students know how to apply their knowledge in real-world situations.“
