Why pgp? and Why isb?
ISB, specifically PGP, afforded me the unparalleled opportunity to be part of a diverse group of over-achieving professionals embarking together on a journey to experience the most rigorous and engaging post-graduate management program in the country.
What ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES AND FOCUS AREAS THIS YEAR?
My over-arching responsibility for the year is to ensure the well-being of the student community of Class of '18 and to further the rich legacy accrued by ISB , as an institution, over a short span of 15 years. In this endeavour I hope to guide and coordinate the efforts of the large student-body at the Hyderabad Campus and integrate the same with student-body at Mohali-Campus.
WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT TO LEARN AND BECOME MORE PROFICIENT AT DURING YOUR STAY AT THE ISB?
I have had a diverse set of professional experiences yet I feel the cohort at ISB has lot to offer viz. insights into a range of professions represented within the Class. I wish to broaden my horizons by interacting with my class-mates and get greater insights into the dynamics of a range of industries.
WHAT SUGGESTIONS WOULD YOU LIKE TO GIVE TO A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT ABOUT ISB?
Don't fall into trap of formulaic career planning. ISB offers you the freedom to chart your journey within ISB and beyond. Given this context, my suggestion to a prospective student would be to avoid group-think and explore individual interests. Excelling within a chosen field of professional interest is far more important than belonging to a type of profession.
