We all, no matter our profession or background, would have thought about MBA’s and specially from Top B schools. For some it’s a destination and for some it’s part of a journey but definitely we have all DREAMED about doing an MBA from the top most B schools in the world.

Sea and Beyond presents a 1st of it’s kind information session EXCLUSIVELY FOR MARINERS on MBA- PGPX.

The Post Graduate Programme in Management for Executives (MBA-PGPX) is one of the finest one-year, full-time, residential programme in the world. Carefully designed by the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad for bright, enthusiastic, and aspirational executives with substantial professional experience, the PGPX programme attracts top talents from diverse industries, cultures, and geographies. Each year, the PGPX programme participants are hand-picked by the faculty of IIM Ahmedabad to ensure a rich, diverse, and well-balanced in-class learning experience for all participants.
