    IIMC Lead Programme has empowered me as a leader, to take apt decisions during difficult situations with the help of IIMC professors and programme directors who were of high pedigree and great knowledge. The first campus visit took me back to my school days and the environment was indeed motivating with people who were curious to learn, experience and immerse themselves in this great pool of knowledge. I learned to think from a wider perspective using analogy and different decision metrics, figure out relations in terms of unrelated happenings that have happened in the past and bring those learnings to current problem solving, execute and solve situations through design thinking, etc.

    Choosing the IIMC Lead programme helped me in understanding what I have been doing well, what I had to improve and cured the dilemmas I had been facing as a manager. The campus visit was great and it helped me learn and unlearn a lot. I learned design thinking and the importance of interconnection between the corporate strategy, business strategy and functional strategy in obtaining the targeted results. The process of integrative learning that the course offered helped me in understanding that there are different approaches to the strategy and the execution piece.

    The IIMC Lead programme structure itself is to the point, crisp and clear. The professors were all excellent. The quality of the content was fantastic and the lectures were engrossing and gripping. This programme has developed my insights and conviction on various decision-making topics and has enabled me to make conscious decisions when confronted with difficult and ambiguous situations.

    The IIMC Lead programme was an enriching experience as it made me understand what’s next, as a person at the edge of taking up a leadership position. The professors made us feel like we were the CEO of the company. The 5-6 days campus visits were immersive and I could absorb a lot from there through interaction with peers. The sessions on various modules of the programme left me with lots of takeaways and it helped me look at everything differently.
