  1. Dear Team,
    If i am working than how we manage with Regular courses .

    Ex- Inleaders

    1. Hi,
      Joining a regular program is equally important for working professionals, they just need to choose the program very carefully. The value addition from the program should be able to compensate for both the opportunity cost and the actual course fee while delivering the program in shortest possible timeframe.

      As far as INLEAD programs are concerned, we have specially designed our Lateral MBA program to suit the requirements of working professionals. The program is 1 year in duration of which 6 months are paid internship. Effectively, the candidate can be back to the corporate world within 6 months of joining the program. The placement statistics indicate a significant improvement in job profile, organizational hierarchy and salary packages compared to the previous profile (before joining the program).
