    "I’m from the construction finance industry. Although this programme is about the broader Banking and Finance sector, the content given by IIM Calcutta is so amazing that I could link their theories to my own world of experience. The sessions and the infrastructure is so amazing that it brought back the student experiences for me after a long time. The set-up is such that it didn't feel like an online course. It was like the professors are just in front of me and I could ask them and interact with them at any point."
