Student Diversity
 

Great Lakes is actively seeking to increase the diversity in the student base in terms of having more female candidates as well as candidates with more diverse academic and professional backgrounds. The Institute is also looking for candidates with broader experience levels to include candidates who already have managerial experience and can add value to the peer group with their rich professional backgrounds.

The PGPM class consists of students from almost every major industry and roles ranging from Finance, Accounting, Advertising, Sales, Marketing, Consulting, Operations, Tech, Human Resources, Law, Journalism, etc. And while a majority of Indian graduates tend to take up roles in IT/ITES industries and form a large section of the PGPM cohort, all of them have worked on different projects for clients in different industries and across geographies, and as such have fairly varied experiences. With 400+ students in the class there is someone who has expertise in every single industry and function.

The PGPM not just caters to students from different backgrounds but also actively leverages the experience the students bring to the table, and as such Great Lakes is actively encouraging students from more diverse backgrounds to be part of the program, giving additional weightage to sectors which are underrepresented. A more diverse class will also lead to increased opportunities for students transitioning to different industries and benefits all students. Great Lakes alumni have reached leadership positions in various industries including Consulting, Banking, FMCG, Media, E-Commerce and IT/ITES, and are spread across 30+ countries with more future leaders joining their ranks every year.
