Future Leaders’ Program (FLP)

Program Brochure

Future Leaders’ Program

Certification program for under-graduate and post-graduate students in professional institutes and colleges to focus on the non-academic aspects of leadership – marked as essential by FICCI Survey 2010.

Background

FICCI’s 2010 industrial survey on ‘Employability Quotient of Undergraduates in India’ reveals major gaps in the non-technical skills of fresh graduates – skills that are placed high on the demand scale but very low on the satisfaction scale by the corporate.

Most of these skills are related to the very foundation of human nature and attitude – and therefore a challenge for institutes to include in their regular curriculum.

FLP aims to address this challenge – by enabling a holistic development of the individuals and enhancing capabilities for delivering excellence
