Past Participant Testimonials

"All lectures were excellent and informative. The theory, case studies etc., in all the lectures were incredibly useful. The best part is that all the content and fundamentals discussed during the class were applicable across all sectors. This programme helped me immensely in getting recognition in my present company and gave me an opportunity to grow my network. Listening and interacting with one of the best IIM professors and receiving the Executive Education Alumni Status from IIM Calcutta was the cherry on top."
