Why did you choose PGPpro programme?

PGPpro offers a unique proposition in the Indian market for mid-career professionals looking to take their careers to the next level without the high opportunity cost of a full-time course. This programme is definitely the most wholesome package in its class and is the only programme that provides various career support interventions along with an international immersion. The opportunity to gain the right blend of hard and soft skills through academics, peer learning, student clubs and the interventions makes PGPpro stand apart from all other alternatives. Access to world-class faculty, a truly diverse set of accomplished peers and reach to the global ISB alumni network – all at fraction of a cost of equivalent programmes at foreign universities made PGPpro a prudent choice for me.
