    Testimonials from Past Participants

    I enrolled in this programme as it was the first of its kind programme in India, specifically in the HR domain, and also since it was relevant to the aspirations of a Senior HR Leader. The curriculum, mode of learning, and pedagogy were conducive to in-depth learning for senior HR leaders. Along with HR-based modules, the programme delved into business aspects that would equip modern-day CHROs with the much-needed business acumen. The case studies and expert sessions made us think on issues that matter. Throughout the programme we learned insights about: - How do senior HRs further the purpose of their organisation through a deeper understanding of talent matters. - How do senior leaders make their contribution attribute to business growth? - The programme also made us aware of our leadership styles and how we could take decisions effectively while using contemporary HR analytics. The course was very demanding and finally being recognised as a top student of this batch was a very fulfilling achievement.
