THE programme took shape when two IIM-B alumni, who work for cricketer Anil Kumbleowned sports company TENVIC, suggested using sports to hone leadership skills as one of their executive management programmes. This had been done in the US before but never in India. Participants will be guided on leadership, how to manage multiple layers, deal with being the “captain” of a team or even “just an executive,” and coping with new job opportunities.

  1. Hello Friends.........

    Have a nice time ahead.


  2. What exactly mean by Top B School? What is definition? Tomorrow we will come to know that it means producing top foolish graduates.......

    we have top panwala in our town.... also top sweeper in our town who clean our city streets... we also have top garbage yard in the city every corner....

    These top concept become subject of debate in India. Why ? because this Top Business has no global recognition..

    These concept of "Top" do not fit into Global Standard of Business Schools.

    Because none of these Top has ever produced any Nobel Laureates or Noble Prize Nominee forget about Nobel Prize winning ability of these so called "Top" B Schools in India.
