    "As you rise in a corporate hierarchy or entrepreneurship, non-academic traits contribute more to further success, communication skills being the most critical amongst them. First things first, coming with an investment banking industry experience of over 10 years, I joined this program looking forward to the practical aspects of the corporate communication paradigm covering public speaking, deal negotiations & credibility building tools which I found very useful. Not only did I gain insights on these concepts through the blended learning offered by distinguished faculties but also reaped an added advantage of engaging & building a professional network with my fellow batchmates bringing enriching industry experience from across sectors and geographies. This program added the skill aspect and also gave an opportunity to co-learn with batch mates and lifelong be part of this professional family via the IIM Calcutta alumni network. I genuinely feel that this program is very well suited for all senior executives & corporate leaders looking to add a valuable component of communication skills to their corporate journey. "

    "EPCSCL of IIM Calcutta is a program which I feel will greatly benefit all corporate (and PSU) executives who aspire to be clearly successful corporate leaders. This program is not just for executives working in the communication deptts of organizations . This LDP course gives training by regular and highly-skilled (but yet very down-to-earth ) IIM Calcutta Professors and enable participants to scale new heights in their careers. I have come out with further sharpened Language of Leadership, better Negotiation and Argumentation Skills, Ability to Nudge and improved ability to perform in cross-cultural corporate environment."

    "I remember a beautiful quote by John F. Kennedy, “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other” & I have understood its meaning while being a student of the Communication Strategy For Corporate Leader course here at IIM Calcutta. The faculty here have taught me the importance of building my own credibility/brand in this competitive space & shape my future as a communications professional. Communication is a part of our daily lives, but the specialized manner in which I was able to gain insights into this sphere has changed the way in which I view communications as a whole and corporate communications in particular. I have been able to implement the strategies learned in real life corporate settings and have started to see the benefits of it by economizing communications and being more impactful when needed. Some of the important topics that I have learned here and would cherish for a lifetime include - corporate behavior , negotiation skills, building credibility , genre GPS, myth value , in-tangible benefits , window of opportunity , borderline thinking, public speaking , understanding of communication language verbal no verbal & mega trend etc. The course is vast and well designed in a manner that allows for its practical application. Huge respect and thanks to the entire program director, VCNow & IIM Calcutta."

    "EPCSCL has been an intellectual voyage for me in search of mythic value or perhaps a simulacrum. It has exposed me to various facets of communication strategies including communication analytics, business investigation, politics, philosophy, sociology and anthropology. The course has given me, a former Senior Editor and a national award-winning communications leader with 18 years experience, a whole new perspective that cuts across every element of strategic leadership. I am thankful to all the professors, especially Prof Anju Seth, Prof Anirvan Pant, Prof Pragyan Rath and Prof Apoorva Bharadwaj. A special thanks to the team of VCNow for the platform."
