And suddenly you know...It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.”
The rain gods had been active over the weekend. But the incessant showers couldn’t dampen the ongoings of the immersion of the Executive MBA 2017 B batch. Industry’s senior professionals who have braced themselves to the challenge of transforming their career paths were shown a sneak peak into the journey they are to have at IPL.
Having cut themselves off from their work emails and the internet, the three days of immersion was a world of its own, filled with knowledge sessions, workshops and an open atmosphere for some quality networking.
Prof. Rahul Abhyankar, Cofounder and Director of Faculty & Programs at the Institute flew down from California to personally interact with and handhold the participants into their journey of career transformation. Dr. Marya Wani gave an insight into the curriculum and what to expect out of their stint with the Institute, along with details on the semester wise breakup and the available electives. Prof. Nandini Vaidyanathan, Prof. Naveen Lakkur and Prof. Shaleel Nalakath were among the others who joined the team at IPL. Together, the cohort got a rousing welcome and motivation to get started. The speakers congratulated the cohorts on their bold step towards accelerating their careers with the EMBA program.
The energy that the cohorts brought to the table was to be seen to be believed. Most of the participants hadn’t met each other before, but through the duration of the immersion, they came together to form a solid team who would help one another grow through the course.
The EMBA is not a means of mere degree accumulation. It is apparent from the high profile designations of the students, that the takeaway from this course is most intangible and one you would treasure for life. The students are from top tier companies from the industry and they have trusted the reigns of their career acceleration in the able hands of the Institute.
If you are looking for a career transition in the product space, this is an opportunity that you cannot miss. A transformational journey doesn’t happen so often, and when it does, it is the smart that go after it!
