WHY PGP? AND WHY ISB?
Having worked with varied roles and responsibilities in technical departments in my previous organization, I pursued PGP to:
 
  • Enhance my managerial & leadership skills.
  • gain cross functional knowledge
  • understand the functioning, challenges and driving factors of sectors other than infrastructure
 
ISB was a great fit for my aspirations because of its diverse pool of students and its globally renowned faculty. The one-year compressed PGP program allowed me to return to corporate world one year sooner than many other B-Schools. Additionally, since I wanted to pursue my MBA in India, ISB was clearly the best choice for me. I am very glad that I made this decision.
WHAT ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES AND FOCUS AREAS THIS YEAR?

As a director for Academic Affairs Council, my vision is to ensure a smooth and hiccup free academic experience for students at ISB and help them squeeze maximum benefits from the experience and expertise of ISB’s professors and their diverse peer group. The council aims to promote peer-to-peer learning by creating an environment in which the entire student body grows in collaboration with each other. The council has successfully implemented ideas to impact the entire batch at large and strives to address any individual concern by acting as a bridge between student body and administration.

WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT TO LEARN AND BECOME MORE PROFICIENT AT DURING YOUR STAY AT THE ISB?
At ISB, I aspire to widen my spectrum of business understanding, build strong foundations in functional areas of operations, strategy & finance, enhance my personal and professional network, improve my leaderships & people management skills and create memories for life. Overall, I wish to learn something new by end of each day during this ‘one year of transformation’.
WHAT SUGGESTIONS WOULD YOU LIKE TO GIVE TO A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT ABOUT ISB?

ISB is a premium Indian B-school which shall indeed transform your professional and personal skills, but I suggest prospective students to ensure that they have a clear picture of their short and long-term goals. Although the one-year compressed PGP can at times prove hectic and overwhelming, it is necessary that a student carves his/her own path and extract the maximum from this once in a lifetime experience. Be genuine, be yourself, work hard and work smart……trust me ISB will not disappoint you and joining ISB will prove to be the one of the best decisions of your life.
