Crescent School of Business offers a unique PGDM with specialization in Strategy & Leadership with a focus to build future managers and leaders. The course spans out over a year with 640 hours of learning covering the important aspects of any other MBA programme. The feature of assigning an expert in the field as a mentor to an individual student stands out and is revolutionary in India. Also, the quality of the faculty is exemplary bringing in wide industry knowledge and expertise. Given this is a foundation batch, there are only 9 students. However, the diversity, in terms of backgrounds of each of the individual student fills the gap of limited opportunities for peer learning. The fees charged is extremely nominal for the quality of education provided and serves as a predominant factor in choosing the school. Overall, the experience has been worthwhile.

The college is named after Shri B.S. Abdur Rahman, who was a noted Tamilian businessman and philanthropist. 

As the other courses are run by the other group colleges, so the Crescent School of Business has a single- programme focus towards management education. Towards this, it runs the UGC (University Grants Commission) approved PGDM (Post Graduate Diploma in Management). Admissions to this programme is via the usual nationally or state- wise accepted entrance exams such as CAT, CMAT, MAT and TANCET. The concept of Professional Mentorship is one that has been successfully adopted here. Students get attached to industry experts within their career areas for personalized sessions.
