That Great Lakes is recognized as one of the country's premier B-schools is itself testimony to the nature and quality of the education that is imparted. During my interaction with the students at Great Lakes, I have found them to be curious, motivated, energetic and enterprising. Great Lakes has earned the undisputed respect of the academic and corporate community in a very short span of time and my best wishes to Bala and the Institute to scale greater heights in the days to come.

Interacting with the students of Great Lakes was a refreshing experience. The students displayed a sense of keen inquiry in asking variety of questions which reflected their intelligence, knowledge and maturity. I am sure that they will be highly prized and well regarded wherever they go.

With a global mindset, a 'can-do' attitude, and strong work and professional ethics, these students have played a critical role in ensuring Cognizant's enviable position as the fastest growing top-tier Consulting and IT Services Company. One example of this live association is the creation of a focused 'Great Lakes Alumni Network' within Cognizant that involves itself in fostering and growing the bilateral bonds. We, at Cognizant have enjoyed being an active participant in many of Great Lakes' academic and business initiatives. We look forward to sustaining and growing this mutually beneficial relationship, consistently in the future too.
