Why did you choose PGPMAX programme?

There are destinations you can reach on your own, and then there are some where you need the aid of a map. For me, ISB is like a map, helping me navigate to the next phase of my career. I realised the need for a well-tailored management programme, which would help hone my knowledge and upskill me in new areas. The PGPMAX’s cohort diversity and exposure to top-notch faculty from ISB and other leading international business schools were some of the key attributes that made me decisively select ISB’s PGPMAX programme.
