  • My introduction to the program occurred via online research and recommendations from senior colleagues within my industry. As I delved into the program’s curriculum and absorbed insights from previous participants’ reviews, I was convinced that this program was the perfect fit for my career aspirations.

    My learning journey throughout the program was nothing short of transformative. From day one, I was impressed by the program’s structure and the selection of the content. Each module was carefully crafted to build upon the previous one, creating a seamless learning experience. The professor’s expertise and dedication to teaching were evident in every lecture and discussion, making even the most complex topics accessible and engaging.

    One of the highlights of my learning journey was the practical application of knowledge. The program incorporated real-world case studies, group projects, and simulations that challenged me to apply the concepts I had learned. As I look forward to the future, I can see numerous ways in which I will benefit from this program. Firstly, I am confident that the knowledge and skills I have gained will significantly enhance my performance in my current role. I have already started applying strategic thinking and effective leadership skills to improve team dynamics and productivity. Moreover, I believe that this program has equipped me with the tools to take on greater leadership responsibilities and advance my career.

  • After more than two decades in corporate world as a manager I felt there was a lacking in my journey as I never attended a management school.

    With COVID restrictions, the first few classes were online but despite being online it was an experience to cherish. Making new friends, listening to different perspectives and every day see my long-standing beliefs break to make way for new ideas and learning was an amazing experience. The courses were designed keeping the need of the current IT managers in mind and every lecture was a massive infusion of new idea, thoughts and knowledge. Interaction with professors whether in-house or adjunct were such rich that we still cherish those conversations. The most exciting as well as horrifying moment was the tests. Tests were designed so aptly that only a thorough study can make you score a A. Many case studies with my fellow batchmates were enriching as got the opportunity to learn from each other’s strength. The campus, batchmates, professor and the course design together gave a wholistic experience which is multi-fold of value compared to the money invested.

    It is now more than nine months since attended the last class of GMITE, but the learning has just begun showing results. I am able to reach my top leadership and invite them for a learned conversation with my ideas and experience that I have gathered through my professional journey and knowledge from GMITE.  I have expanded my role beyond a people manager to involve in Product management, Sales and Finance, which would not have been possible without the practical understanding of these subjects. Prior to GMITE I was owning few development teams, but today I own business of one product along with the teams and looking forward to making it the best.  The other benefit I got through my course is that I am now Vice President Public Relations for IIMB Orators Club which is the Alumni only Toastmasters Club. I see the value and benefits of being part of the dignified IIM Bangalore Alumni.

  • I wanted to upskill myself to take-up higher role & responsibility at my organization. I was looking for the best degree that suited my needs at reputed institutes. I learned about GMITE from the HR at my work, and when I enquired few friends and co-workers who had taken the course in past batches, they gave me extremely positive feedback.

    It was an incredible learning experience throughout the year during my course at IIM Bangalore. I was very anxious and nervous to go back to school after 20 years, but my perspective has changed after attending few days of classes. I was astounded by the Professors’ ability to break down difficult concepts into simple ones and apply them to real-world situations. The case studies made it easier for me to see how and where I might use the topic at my work. Learning organizational strategy, financial management, business analytics, and economics was quite enjoyable for me. It was wonderful experience to learn from world-class and highly reputed Professors with so much of humbleness at IIM Bangalore.

    I was delighted to witness each professor engaging students in conversation and ensuring everyone understood the concepts. The group assignments, tests, and presentations were always enjoyable, and they have aided in understanding the breadth and depth of the subject and its relevance. Beautiful campus, well organised & kind department staff has enhanced the great learning experience.

    I am really happy with the knowledge and skills I learned during the course. I can clearly see the difference in the way of thinking, ability to understand broader perspective and creating value on the work. Within a year of completing the course, I was elevated to Director level at my organization, completing this program was key to build the confidence in me also to gain trust of my leadership team in expanding my responsibility.

    This program has strengthened my desire to do something new on my own, I am looking forward to venture on that soon.
