Why did you choose PGPMAX programme?

The skills and competencies essential for today's global business leaders sat at the core of the PGPMAX curriculum, precisely what I was looking to equip myself with. The sheer diversity of people and ideas in a peer group that consisted of other senior professionals with similar career trajectories would go a long way in enriching my understanding of how other businesses and leader’s function. Besides, ISB was right next to where I lived and worked, giving me that much more flexibility to balance work and maximize time with my family.
