The potential of infrastructure that aids smooth operations was evident when the ambulance reached my home, 9kms away, in less than 8 minutes.

I vowed to myself that day – to bring similar economic prosperity in India through better infrastructure management. In the long term, I plan to join Niti Aayog in the Infrastructure and Development department. Through a direct role in the economic decisioning process, I aim to enhance financial inclusion across the country through projects that promote better healthcare, education and housing for all.The initial steps towards my long-term ambition have already been taken. A firm footing in technology through my professional stint at Cognizant and the financial acumen gained at ICICI Bank by underwriting debt funding proposals for logistics, mining and infrastructure companies have provided the necessary blueprint of a problem that I seek to solve. However, before I embark on my short term of goal of joining a consulting company in their infrastructure advisory roles, I seek to become hands-on in areas of strategy consulting and gain deeper understanding of infrastructure sector.

Here, I believe that the ISB’s ELP program will help fill the skill gap by allowing to work on targeted problems through live projects. My discussions during the various info-sessions have yielded a vivid visualisation of how the LDP program fosters cross-functional leadership by bridging the gap between theory and application.┬áThe opportunity to collaborate with a diverse cohort while being able to contribute freely through case discussions and club outfits makes ISB the perfect choice for guiding me towards my goal of contributing positively in the growth of my country.
