Adding to the extended achievement-list of the Institute, two PGP students Harbani Lamba and Sanya Singh have received the YES ASPIRE Scholarship by YES Bank. The award function took place on March 30, 2016 at Mumbai. YES BANK, India’s fifth largest private sector
bank, awarded the selected 30 students from 20 Top B-Schools across India out of 250 applicants who applied for the scholarship. Harbani and Sanya were selected among those 30 students who had exceptional leadership qualities and holistic academic performance and were rewarded INR 2 Lac each to help pursue their entrepreneurial vision. In addition to the scholarship amount, they also got an opportunity to receive mentorship from YES BANK’s Top Management Team and also participate in the Bank’s exclusive knowledge events throughout the year.
The applications were evaluated on the basis of their academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular achievements along with an online assessment test. The selected students shared a video SOP on ‘My YES ASPIREations’, highlighting their aspirations and career goals. The final selections were made on the basis of a personal interview conducted with each of the shortlisted applicants.
