Why did you choose PGPMAX programme?
As an entrepreneur, I wanted to do an MBA to gain core business knowledge, frameworks, and principles. ISB offers a rigorous academic programme based on an action learning philosophy. The programme has world-renowned professors with diverse and accomplished executives, creating the best learning environment. I also came here for the quantitative focus, and need to know how to use, harness, and leverage data to reach better business outcomes. The action learning aspect at ISB means students immediately apply what they learn. I am very excited to be part of the PGPMAX programme.
