An MBA is a once in a lifetime opportunity to expand one's horizons and goes well beyond a year of learning or one's first job. Its purpose is to set you up on a lifelong curve of learning and growth. Every challenge is an opportunity and in the true Great Lakes tradition of innovating, this year we launched the unique Term Zero to open up candidates' thought process and kick-start their transformation.
As part of the Term Zero, we are having 12 Global Management Gurus interacting and sharing perspectives with the PGPM cohort. It is absolutely a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from the management doyens from top global Business Schools like Harvard, Stanford, Booth, Yale, INSEAD, Kellogg, etc. - people who have impacted management education, written textbooks and advised CEOs of Fortune 500 companies.
While Great Lakes has been one of the few Indian schools to attract such global gurus to interact with students in the past, this year is unique in that 12 of them will be interacting with the PGPM Co2021 in a very short span of two weeks right at the beginning of the program. This is about truly rethinking the possibilities of how we can actually innovate and create value rather than be bogged down by challenges - something all aspiring managers should inculcate to be successful in an ever changing world.
