What's in store

Every nation pins its hope on the current generation – the collection of young and bright citizens who will go on to become the leaders of tomorrow. YLS is an excellent forum that brings together the corporate leaders and young minds who aspire to become future business leaders. The delegates will take part in a week-long online summit which provides them a peek into the corporate world, its challenges and lets them experience management tools and techniques. The delegates get a chance to interact and learn from IIM Bangalore’s renowned faculty, participate in workshops and interact with corporate leaders. The forum also gives a glimpse into the life of an MBA graduate and will help students take an informed decision about their career.
