Market volatility, rapid innovation, and geopolitical strife are driving the demand for business professionals with a global and strategic mindset. The recent example of government demonetization highlights the need for professionals who can navigate complex situations. Global competition and technological advancements have significantly raised the requirements for creating and maintaining a competitive advantage. Navigating today’s business world calls for vision, confidence, and strategies that yield tangible results. At WeSchool, we focus on nurturing students to become global citizen leaders who contribute to organizations and society. To achieve this, we have introduced the Global Citizen Leadership Program (GCL) in collaboration with the Centre for Creative Leadership, featured in the Stanford Social Innovation Review. Leadership, innovation, and design thinking are key components of our philosophy.

WeSchool has undertaken groundbreaking initiatives like Med4Dev India-Israel, Affordable Healthcare Hackathon, and India Sweden Innovation Accelerator. Our core value of ‘We Link and Care’ is reflected in initiatives such as the adoption of the ‘Matunga’ railway station in partnership with Ruia & Podar College. We prioritize Executive Education to develop leaders who can navigate the ever-changing business landscape. Over the years we catered to the executive education need of renowned companies such as Infosys, Robert Bosch, Dell, HP, Biocon, EY, Titan, SPAR, Continental Auto, Altimetrik, GE India, and Zydus etc.

Our Leadership & Management Development Program empowers executives to be ahead of the curve by challenging perceptions and identifying early signals of change. Join us to connect the dots and explore new perspectives in your business, industry, and geography.
