Feedback from EPGDIB alumni

The experience of this programme was very good and learning was new for technocrats like me. Exposure to Global Business Environment and HRM issues was very interesting and helpful for working in a global business with multicultural teams . The selection of faculty was very good and there were active examples and case studies from global businesses.

- Alok Goel, Head and Leader of Technical Team, Refinery Business , ADNOC-Group of Companies, Abu Dhabi

This programme is designed with a deep thought process & it's focus was not "read & reproduce" but making ourselves more competitive. The program director & the faculties allocated to this program had all the real & impressive practical experience which made the subject more acceptable to us in its theoretical form. It was real fun when we sat in a virtual class room.
