Young Leader's Summit

Registration Start Date 14th August 2016 - 9:00 PM
Registration Close Date 2nd September 2016 - 11:55 PM

Every nation pins its hope on the current generation - the collection of young and hopeful citizens who will go on to become the leaders of tomorrow. In a populous country such as India, which is characterized by its diversity and complexity, the objective of progress becomes that much more loaded. The classroom education strives to prepare the youth for the technical challenges they will face but forms only one-half of the equation. Gone are the times when just blackboards and texts sufficed. Tomorrow's leaders need to be able to take the learning from within the four walls and translate it into effecting action for tackling the increasingly complex world.

In this backdrop, Vista announces the third edition of the Young Leaders' Summit (YLS). After resounding success for two years in a row, YLS is back again to create an engaging platform for students from around the country. The delegates will take part in a 3-day summit designed to maximize learning and to seed interaction amongst peers and experienced professionals. The students will get an opportunity to learn from IIM Bangalore’s globally renowned faculty, who have immense experience in industry, academia, and research; and interact with leading minds in the industry who have been there and done it. Besides, they will also get a first-hand experience of IIMB life through participation in a number of academic and extra-curricular activities.

There are many events that mark a student's course and defines the path taken. YLS aims to be a landmark in this journey, which would serve as the cornerstone of leadership.


The summit will be held on-campus (at IIMB) from 23rd to 25th September 2016, with participants required to attend sessions on all the three days for successful completion. It will comprise of a mix of lectures, classroom sessions and competitions. The objective would be to impart learning in key subject areas, to connect students will real-time scenarios and to facilitate peer-to-peer interactions.
