After success of Young India Fellow ship, Dr Pramath Raj Sinha to mentor ‘40 Potential Leaders Program’ at two new MBA institutes


After the tremendous success of the Young India Fellowship Program at Ashoka University, Dr Pramath Raj Sinha launches the ‘40 Potential Leaders Program’ at Center for Leadership, Northcap University and Crescent School of Business.

Dr Pramath Raj Sinha pioneered The Young India Fellowship (YIF) at Ashoka University. The YIF is a one year multidisciplinary postgraduate diploma programme in Liberal Studies. The Fellowship brings together  bright young individuals who show exceptional intellectual ability and leadership potential from across the country, and trains them to become socially committed agents of change.

The same spirit is now being carried into the ‘40 Potential Leaders Program’ wherein select PGDM aspirants at both these new B-schools will be chosen and mentored for leadership tracks in their industry of choice. The selection will be done on the basis of academic track record, quality of work experience and leadership potential. This program provides a stepping board to young leaders who join the PGDM program to become leaders in the new digital world.

Commenting on the new program, Dr Sinhasaid “for YIF the focus was to reach out to fresh graduates who have been mostly exposed to specialized education, say engineers, economists, lawyers, etc. and introduce them to a broad based liberal arts education.  At CSB and Centre for Leadership at NCU, the focus is distinct and is on professionals with minimum 2 years of workexperience. At both these schools, we will focus on developing the existing leadership potential in the chosen candidates in a way that equips them to excel in managing people and situations.”

The most unique feature of this programs is that it  will directly address  how management andleadership should be practiced  in a digital world which is marked by volatility and uncertainty. It will teach how leaders need to adapt to situationsnimbly and flexibly.

Dr.Pramath Raj Sinha’s rich experience over the years – across academia, consulting, education and business – has given him a rare insight on running organisations and different operating environments. He is the founding Dean of the Indian School of Business (ISB), Hyderabad and was instrumental in building ISB into a world-class business school in India. He is also the Founder and Trustee of the Ashoka University, India’s first liberal arts university. This rich experience is now accessible to the 40 potential leaders who choose to take up the PGDM programs at these B-schools.
