Competitive intensity and the innate ability to deal with ambiguity make Indian leaders exceptional and noteworthy. India has proved its prowess, not just in technical areas but also in regional and global leadership positions. These leaders of change are impacting the global economy like never before. With this as a backdrop, I foresee this collaboration as an important milestone in the journey of producing world-class talent and future global leaders.

The current wave of global growth has already shifted its epicentre to Asia and India. We have already seen thought-leadership emerging from ‘made-in-India’ managers who are successful leaders in global renowned institutions that significantly impact the world we live in today. This will only grow in the future. I am delighted to have this partnership with IIT Bombay and look forward to seeing exciting new talent emerge from this collaboration.

Dean - Olin Business School

The WashU Olin–IIT Bombay EMBA program was designed for contemporary business leaders navigating a business landscape impacted by globalization and digital transformation. Executive MBA students develop a dual perspective on business and leadership through our unique curriculum—in-person instruction from Olin’s outstanding faculty, a residency at the Brookings Institution and time spent at Washington University.

“As the CEO of the joint venture between IIT Bombay and Washington University in St. Louis, my endeavour is to provide every participant with a functionally excellent and a psychologically safe landscape. I believe that each of the 18 precious months they spend with us should contribute tremendously to their personal proficiency and professional acumen. At the end of their tenure, each one of them should metamorphose into a newer and better version of themselves – a more confident, competent and consistent professional or entrepreneur. They should be future-ready, transition-ready and eager to embrace every challenge or opportunity with grace, intelligence and intuition.”
