It's easy for me to come to IIT Bombay for the four-day-per-month classes, and my work at Microsoft isn't affected. I take program learning back to my organization and implement it on Monday morning. I needed to develop a holistic business mindset and a better understanding of cross-functional management. My priorities are to enhance my strategic thinking and critical analysis. Course delivery includes interactive echanges on case studies, giving me new approaches to problem-solving."
