Student Testimonials

Radhika Praveen

Hello, I am Radhika, currently working as a Programme manager with years of experience. Throughout my career, I have been involved mainly with the technical side of things and so decided to take a plunge into management. 
In order to do so, I wanted to equip myself better and from the best. That’s when I found out about PGPEM from IIMB. I did not want to stop working, so this was a very good option. Joining PGPEM has been the best decision of my life and a life-changing experience while learning from best of the best professors, peers from diverse backgrounds, and the pedagogy. The best thing about PGPEM is applying the learnings from the classroom every day at work. Not just me, but my colleagues and managers too have been able to see the transition in my delivery of work. Being a working mother, managing home, work, and PGPEM has been hectic, but I did not feel fatigued because of the excellent learning experience. I can confidently say I am ready to take on any challenges at work and be a great manager.

Given my technical background, I developed a deep functional expertise on various aspects of pharma research in my professional career. However, one needed to be ready to look beyond its expertise area and develop a knack to look at the big picture. PGPEM provided me the opportunity to look at things differently and develop a holistic view with the end goal in mind. Learning from top notch professors and cross-pollination with peers builds a solid foundation to face the ever-changing business environment globally.
