  • “Talking about one year at Great Lakes Sijo says, 21st century skills are the ones that are valued by the workplace today. Great Lakes provides a good platform and an environment to develop those skills. Only a handful of schools in India provide you with an opportunity to have such diverse group of people with industry experience as your batch mates. The knowledge and realization that there are no right answers, its all about perspectives, is a great learning that I took from Great Lakes.

    The PGPM program at Great Lakes, helped shape my mindset and the perspective to leverage my skills and competence. It also provided me with the opportunity to work with PwC in a consulting role.

    Personally for me, it was a fun-filled and interesting One year of my Life!”
