TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROGRAM EXPERIENCE

To begin, the program is the first of its kind in India and South Asia that is focused on applied learning of advanced management concepts, specifically for senior executives and business owners. The UCLA faculty is amazing. It was a privilege to have been able to learn from them. The program curriculum is designed so that participants develop an extensive functional knowledge of business from a local and global perspective. Not only will you gain knowledge of all key business functions, but you will also have a practical understanding of how they interrelate. The program is split between classroom and online modules and is perfect for someone who needs to fulfill their existing work engagements.

WHAT DID YOU GAIN FROM INTERACTING WITH YOUR PEER GROUP?

The peer group interaction was really fantastic. There was a great diversity in the group with people coming from various industries, big and small organizations and with diverse experience levels, which is what I was keenly looking for in this program. During the classroom discussions, hearing about what has worked for other people was helpful to understand the best practices for many kinds of situations.

WHAT IMPACT HAS THE PROGRAM HAD ON YOU?

This program continues to help me manage my business and makes for a great alumni network and potential colleagues, partners, clients, or even investors. I acquired great knowledge from the modules on marketing, branding, and communication, which is the business I am in right now. When I dealt with professors from UCLA, I think they gave me a lot of advanced knowledge on what is happening globally, which is also beneficial for my clients. The program gave me a combination of strategies, skills, and acumen that has expanded my capabilities and possibilities. It is also aimed at exploring the Indian market in a global context, which will allow competing at a global level.

HOW DID UCLA PGPX HELP YOU GROW AS A LEADER?

It helped me greatly during this phase of my career where I am running my own business, raising money, dealing with investors, managing finance, and crafting more efficient operations. This program has given me a lot of basic as well as advanced knowledge coupled with the experiences of a variety of people in the group who were part of the program. The great part about the program is that it is valuable no matter what industry you are in.
