Bringing laurels to the Institute, PGP Participants Lal Chand Poonia and Shruti Aran have won the YES Bank Scholarship under YES ASPIRE to Innovate. YES BANK’s vision in founding ‘YES ASPIRE to Innovate’ is to provide a grooming platform for aspiring young leaders, who would lead India into the next wave of socio economic growth. This thought leadership initiative rewards 30 exceptional scholars every year for their entrepreneurial vision, leadership qualities, holistic academic performance and above all the passion to excel. Competing with students from 15 Top B-Schools, participating in over four rounds, Lal Chand and Shruti were among the selected 30 scholars to receive a scholarship worth Rs. 2 Lakhs and mentorship by YES BANK Leaders. Additionally, the winners also received Pre-Placement Interviews (PPIs) from YES BANK, access to key YES BANK Knowledge Reports and the opportunity to attend select Knowledge Events by YES BANK.
During the competition, the selected candidates shared a video on ‘My Aspirations’, highlighting their journey, career goals and how YES ASPIRE will help them to achieve the same. Final selections were based on personal interviews.
