YLP or the Young Leaders Program is a deferred admit option that ISB offers to high-performing students completing their Bachelor’s or Master’s degree. The purpose is to identify extraordinary talent when aspirants are still in college and groom them even before they join ISB’s flagship PGP program, after mandatory completion of one year and nine months of full time work experience, following graduation.
The program initially involves a mix of online and classroom learning through four, intensive, weekend sessions with six month gaps that will eventually lead up to the full-time PGP program. It allows the students to interact with the world class faculty at ISB, who offer constant guidance and feedback to make the right career choices. To apply for this program, the students must be in the final or pre-final year of their Bachelor’s or Master’s program.
YLP is an amazing opportunity to learn more about the fundamentals of business management. It gives students a chance to interact with world renowned faculty and peers. It allows them to explore prospects after ISB and formulate informed career plans in the 2yrs before joining the PGP. Every opportunity is what you make of it, but ISB YLP is an opportunity that comes with a great many invaluable add-ons.
ISBmantra has been mentoring YLP candidates with their application and interview for several years now. It has also achieved the unique feat of helping a YLP candidate get an interview call for the YLP with just a 630 GMAT.
