“I was fortunate to have Kaushik as my corporate governance lecturer during my MBA journey at the Australian Institute of Business. The subject could have easily been dry and unengaging; however, Kaushik made the course his own by engaging, supporting and linking real-life experience to theory and frameworks. He ensured that he answered any questions (no matter how left the field they were) even if there was some research on his behalf outside the lecturer. Kaushik’s knowledge and teaching style allowed me to grasp and retain a significant about of knowledge and structure. I am happy to say Kaushik taught me; due to this, I have no hesitation in recommending Kaushik for his expertise in corporate governance, ESG and sustainability. I wish Kaushik all the best in his future endeavours.”

“Dr Kaushik Sridhar was my lecturer at AIB during my final subject of my MBA- Corporate Governance. I experienced through him excellent real world knowledge about the functionality of Boards, ESG & Corporate Risk Strategy which allowed me to dovetail his experience and increase my knowledge in that sector of corporate structures,strategy and board requirements. His impression upon me will leave an admiration for the young man he is, not only driving but having achieved excellence in his career thus far which in know doubt will be an asset to any employer or academic institution who has this educator on there board or lecture team. He kept our attention as a cohort in class and we fed off his knowledge. I am proud to have been a AIB student and to have had him as our OLF. I wish him all the best for the future and will be tracking his success moving forward.”

“During my studies at the Australian Institute of Business (AIB) I awas fortunate to have Dr. Kaushik as my lecturer for Corporate Governance. I did not know what to expect from the subject and if I’m honest I was expecting it to be dry and boring. I have had lectures in the past that were difficult to follow and lacked relative content. Dr. Kaushik conducted webinars that were engaging and informative. Dr. Kaushik was quick to respond to my questions and provided usable feedback. With his guidance I was able to navigate the course content and achieve high marks. He helped me to appreciate and develop a sound understanding of Corporate Governance. I can highly recommend Dr. Kaushik as an educator and would jump at the opportunity to learn from him again.”

“I am honoured to provide a recommendation for Dr. Kaushik Sridhar. Dr. Sridhar, whom I met during my MBA journey, was the professor for my Corporate Governance course. His understanding of the role Corporate Governance plays in a company was exceptional. He called on his vast business experience to bring home what some may consider dry material and make the work alive and accessible. He inspired me to pursue higher education and has become someone I consider a mentor and colleague. I also deeply appreciate his philosophical perspective on business and life. His love of deep thinking, combined with his business mind and caring heart, is a blend that you don’t see often, and sets him above the rest. All his students, past, present and future, benefit from his commitment to teaching.”
