Indian School of Business - Young Leaders Program ( YLP )

ISB YLP: step on the accelerator to the corporate world.

The first batch of ISB YLP is ready to get into the prestigious 1 yr MBA at ISB( Hyderabad and Mohali) in April ’14.  The young leader’ s program is a unique package in that ISB handholds you by guiding you while you are still in college. You are initiated into leadership even before you do MBA.  The YLP is the foundation for the PGP, a foundation that gives you the much needed assurance and guaranteed career in business.

What it takes?
ISB looks out for early signs of leadership. Of course,
 consistent, excellent academics and non-academics are mandatory.

What happens at the mentoring stage?
In a nut shell it readies you for the 1 yr MBA program in a structured manner; the 21 month work experience and simultaneous mentoring by ISB, nearly substitute the experience you gain in four to five years in the industry. Once the screening ( included in this story itself) is completed and you’re admitted, you attend weekend contact programs on campus, every six months. The contact sessions centres around career planning, communication, profiling, readiness for the rigors of the 1 yr MBA. Interactive sessions, assignments are part of the contact programs.
