WHY PGP? AND WHY ISB?
The PGP presents a unique opportunity to gain cross-functional leadership skills, develop sound business acumen and learn about globally accepted best practices through the fast-paced one year program. As one of India’s best B schools, ISB stands out with its global MBA experience with world-class faculty and curriculum. The diverse peer group, coupled with the nearly 11k strong alumni network make the ISB experience a standout like no other.
WHAT ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES AND FOCUS AREAS THIS YEAR?

As the Director of Alumni Affairs, my primary focus is to build long-lasting, fruitful relations for the cohort with the nearly 11k strong alumni network. The ISB experience is one that continues beyond the duration of the PGP: one’s identity as an ISBian is something cherished for life. I endeavour to leverage the rich, diverse experiences of alumni to contribute to the cohort and the institute.

WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT TO LEARN AND BECOME MORE PROFICIENT AT DURING YOUR STAY AT THE ISB?
As someone with the long-term goal of having my own Enterprise in the AI space, I would like to understand the intricacies that go into running a successful business and the best practices that are followed world over. I want to improve my leadership and people management skills. Lastly, ISB is a great place to make life-long friends and memories!
WHAT SUGGESTIONS WOULD YOU LIKE TO GIVE TO A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT ABOUT ISB?
As a Young Leaders Program (YLP) admit, I was able to interact with a lot of alumni, which helped me assess my fit to the school. Having a clear idea of your goals and how ISB enables you to achieve them is invaluable. The academic rigour and diverse network will surely empower each of us to hone our skills and achieve our goals. The possibilities with ISB are endless. Have loads of fun on your year of transformation at ISB!
