Gopal is an alumnus of the IITB-WashU EMBA program and the CEO of the IIT Bombay-WashU Joint Venture. Here is his message to future participants:
As the CEO of the joint venture between IIT Bombay and Washington University in St. Louis, my endeavor is to provide every participant with a functionally excellent and psychologically safe landscape. I believe that each of the 18 precious months they spend with us should contribute tremendously to their personal proficiency and professional acumen. At the end of their tenure, each one of them should metamorphose into a newer and better version of themselves - a more confident, competent, and consistent professional or entrepreneur. They should be future-ready, transition-ready, and eager to embrace every challenge or opportunity with grace, intelligence and intuition.
