Why did you choose PGPMAX programme?
Each step of my career progression has been punctuated by education. It helped me to cement years of experience and enrich my practice being more efficient, relevant, ethical, and generating opportunities that I was not considering before. While equipping professionals with the necessary toolbox to get to the next level, quoting Prof. Sumantra Ghoshal, an MBA is also giving you the “smell of the place”. I bet on India and it was an obvious choice to pursue my business education there. I choose ISB PGPMAX for its faculty, reputation, and quality of the cohort and I am glad to fly each month from Greece to reach my campus and classmates.
