    A vision of the degrees in Business Administration:
    Implementing solutions to real world problems demands that science, technology and design be combined with commercial viability. Business people enable technologies to be commercially successful within their focal context and population. The BBA degree at Atria University will help students understand –

    • Operational efficiencies – efficiencies in expense management,
    • Project management – how to plan large projects
    • Scheduling
    • Marketing
    • Sales and customer acquisition
    • Business operations and providing services
    • Supply chain and operations across desired industry sectors

    At AU each of the above points will be learned in the context of an industry sector, which is the major in which the students will receive their BBA.

    About the University:

    Atria University is innovating an education framework focused on empowering students to “Learn how to Learn”, combining interdisciplinarity, project based learning and innovative pedagogies towards making the problem solvers of tomorrow. Our first batch of students started in November 2021 at the heart of Bengaluru – a vibrant metropolis and hub of research, technology, art and enterprise in India.
    We teach most courses as 1-3 week full-time immersive modules, with students working on fundamentals in the context of real-world problems. We currently offer majors in 5 domains – Digital Transformation, Energy Sciences, Interactive Technologies, Life Sciences and Mobility

    We are dedicated to equity and inclusion within our workspace and we recognize that higher education has traditionally been quite exclusive. We want to work towards changing that. At Atria, we value experience and expertise, and recognize that qualifications and certificates are not always the best metrics to capture the knowledge and drive that individuals can bring to our team. We shall value the breadth and depth of your experiences, from a wide range of engagements, be they conventional or exploratory

    Vision that drives AU Education:

    We want our students to leave with confidence that they have learned how to learn; manifested in the confidence to undertake independent studies and projects, seeking guidance and collaborations but also working out details on their own. They have recognized who they are and what they want to do in life. They are ethical contributors to future society as collaborators, leaders and problem solvers.

    At AU, students will learn by doing and combine these experiences with the judicious study of existing theoretical works. Therefore, by the end of their education here, they are equipped with a portfolio of projects they have been involved in, and have knowledge in the context of the real world. A student leaving AU will know what it means to need rigorous knowledge that can stand up to the test of real world application, and not just a written exam.


    Close to a major highway in the northern part of Bengaluru, India, Atria University is well connected the the bustle of research, innovation and entrepreneurship. We have easy access to the airport, train stations and public transit.
