My Success Story at INLEAD

Hats off to INLEAD! INLEAD rocks!

It was an immense pleasure and a unique experience to be a part of INLEAD as a post graduate student of Corporate Administration & Facility Management Program. The whole Program is conducted keeping in mind that the Industry needs professionals who are not only trained in the theoretical understanding but also have an exposure of the corporate world. I believe if someone desires a great career then INLEAD is the best place to be. Here you don't need to worry about your placement because the Institute invites top companies to visit the campus during Corporate Connect Week to pick the right talent for the right job.

It was a lot of fun even when we were learning the technicalities of the Program. I will forever hold the Institute, Faculty and Staff Members in high regards for everything they promised and delivered during my year at INLEAD. I still remember my first day in the Institute- I was worried about my future but I had a light of hope in me. There was a trust in the Management, faith and confidence in the course curriculum and the faculty teaching us. The Faculty at INLEAD is personally involved in making us the best of who we can become. What touched my heart the most was when I got my Placement Letter from Aviva Life Insurance with a INR 5 Lac package after the completion of my Program, I was happy but my Faculty was happier than me! That is something you don’t expect and see in any other Institute.

Everything about the Institute is great! The Management is very friendly and approachable to all. The Office of Student Affairs supports and counsels the students every step of the way. INLEAD campus is matchless and it has world class architecture and facilities. All I can say that being a student of INLEAD is something that changed my life completely and I really feel proud to say that I am a part of INLEAD.

INLEAD students Lead the way in Commonwealth Games

During the Commonwealth Games, associated Chambers of Commerce, Industry of India (ASSOCHAM), India is going to get around USD 16,915 million this year from tourism alone. It is also speculated that foreign tourists in India would increase from 5 percent to around 10 percent in October alone this year.

As per ASSOCHAM, the games could result in 10 million additional foreign tourists visiting India leading to more employment. This need can be met by our Hospitality Operations Management Program which equips young professionals. Hospitality Program offer a wide range of career choices in the hospitality and services industry that include – but not limited to – hotels & resort management; airlines ground staff; catering management; and corporate travel management amongst others.

The students are offered 100% placement assistance along with on-the-job training in one of the ITDC hotels. We provide hostel and transport facilities along with financial aid from Punjab National Bank to ease their way into a successful career.

ITDC has offered our students a unique opportunity to be a part of the Commonwealth Games. and have appointed the students to take up key roles at Akshardham Games Village Complex and DDA Vasant Kunj Complex with three star hotel facilities. Mr. P.K. Mathur, General Manager, ITDC says, “Apart from INLEAD students being the face of Incredible India, this will give them a tremendous exposure in handling VIP guests.”

Taking its cue from ITDC, the Organizing Committee of Commonwealth Games has also approached our students to be a part of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Ms. Purnima Pendse, Assistant Director General, Ceremonies, believes that this opportunity will, “Add great value to INLEAD students as they would get a detailed insight into practical on-ground work and operations.” The organizing Committee is impressed by the students’ knowledge, skills and experience in the field of hospitality and event management and has even asked us to exempt the August 2010 batch from their on-the-job training with ITDC for this opportunity.
