Life at Red Bricks: A constant inspiration to grow!

Remarks -
9.2 /10

The 2 years at IIMA are un-paralleled in terms of learning and developing a well-rounded personality. Working beside and learning from some of the best brains and talents around, it not only teaches you the importance of humility and remaining grounded, but enlivens a constant pursuit to grow and get better at what you do. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything.
