Hitesh Oberoi said that personally for him, the two years spent at IIM Bangalore were a life-changing experience. “I am deeply indebted to the institute, the faculty and my batch mates for equipping me with the necessary knowledge, tools and relationships which not only helped me navigate the real world but also contributed immensely to my success. As IIMB embarks on its journey to reimagine and reinvent itself to be future ready, I wish my alma mater all the very best.”
Lakshmi Kaul shared how her two years at IIMB contributed to shaping her life and career. “Bridging the social and economic divisions through education has proven to be the most powerful way of ensuring social transformation. As part of the vision of IIMB’s first Director, Prof. N. S. Ramaswamy, we were encouraged to think in terms of giving back to society and serving the nation. This has been a powerful influence on how my life shaped up. Another person who comes to mind when I think of IIMB, is Prof G. K. Valecha. He made us look inward. He has been my role model and inspiration, as to many others.”
The Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP) is the two-year full-time programme of IIMB, leading up to a master’s degree in business administration (MBA).
