"It is the attitude and guiding principles of the people that are instrumental in leading a nation to success. Ethics, Integrity, Responsibility, Respect for laws and rules, Love for work, Respect for rights of others, Striving for saving and investing, and Punctuality - these are the values the students can expect to learn during this course."
Briefing students about the course Lead - EGP, Prof. Chinmaya Kulshreshtra said " during the course you will learn cross-functional skills, gain broader perspectives, learn about global markets and how to form and implement strategies for innovation".
"Students will be encouraged to discover their own knowledge while keeping in mind that they should not limit themselves to a certain mantra for success, for there exists none. There is no secret sauce to professional success. Learning does not stop in the 20s or 30s. Thinking so will be misleading as it is an old concept. Learning is a lifelong process. Do not ever stop seeking knowledge and upskilling yourself " said MDI Gurgaon Director Dr. Rajesh Chakrabarti while greeting the incoming cohort. "
