WHY PGP? AND WHY ISB?

I was looking for a 1 or 2 year MBA to pursue. In India, this seemed to be the best fit for the years of experience I had and the transition that I wanted into a corporate career. Understanding the Indian context and environment, as well as building a strong network was also important.

WHAT ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES AND FOCUS AREAS THIS YEAR?

Connecting Alumni to students on all fronts, from senior CXO leaders to those that can just guide students during the difficult year. Focus areas are on senior leadership connecting with ISB students and as much in person interaction as possible. Solstice-the Alumni event- is also a large focus.

WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT TO LEARN AND BECOME MORE PROFICIENT AT DURING YOUR STAY AT THE ISB?
Working under immense pressure, managing and working with teams, understanding business opportunities in India, and finding my passion
WHAT SUGGESTIONS WOULD YOU LIKE TO GIVE TO A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT ABOUT ISB?

Speak to alums and current students about the school. Visit the school and try to meet as many students as possible. In India, ISB is the place to go
