How was your overall program experience?
I would consider this program one of the most enriching experiences of my life, both personally and professionally. This was a multi-modular program, with sessions held in the US, UK, and India (Delhi). The program covered various topics, including finance and accounting, organizational leadership, marketing, and communication.
