Shadow a CEO

Shadow a CEO


Shadow a CEO is a unique program organised by Indian School of Business (ISB) as part of Daan Utsav (earlier known as the Joy of Giving Week) to inculcate the habit of giving among the youth of India and provide them with an opportunity to interact up close with the country’s most successful managerial talent. The program has been a great success since its launch in 2009. 
 
The objective of Shadow a CEO is two-fold:
  • Engage the youth in the act of giving
  • Provide them with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to observe and learn lessons by spending a day with some of the biggest CEOs in India

The students bid for the CEO of their choice in a live auction. The CEO then contributes an equal amount, if not more and the collective corpus goes to a charity of the CEO’s choice.

Current post-graduate students of ISB and other top business schools like IIMA, IIMB, IIMC, IIM L and XLRI participate in the online auction to be held during Daan Utsav, in the second week of October.
