SOIL is co-created by a group of leading companies from across industry verticals that believe in SOIL and its value proposition. They partner with SOIL to design the curriculum, select and mentor students, as well as present live case studies and lead the placement process.

Curriculum Design

The SOIL curriculum is designed through several workshops held with leaders from our industry consortium. The curriculum is of the highest quality and meets the needs of the industry while focusing on contemporary global corporate themes. The curriculum includes a balanced focus on leadership development, business excellence and skill development.

Selection of Students

Our focus at SOIL is to ensure we tailor make talent for leading companies. This begins by using standards of selection that are followed by these companies. Each student at SOIL is interviewed and selected by a panel comprising a cross section of leaders from the Industry Consortium.

Mentoring Students

Culturally savvy leaders utilize mentoring as a strategy for generating success in challenging times. At SOIL, every student is assigned a leader from the corporate world as a mentor. This can be a very energizing process, as the mentor helps the student, sometimes for the first time, work towards achieving their learning goals.

Live Case Studies

SOIL organizes Learning Days to welcome each consortium company on campus and involve them in a day of SOIL. Senior management from each company spends time with students in the classroom sharing insights from their experiences and discussing live case studies. This highlights performance breakthroughs in the face of adverse conditions – Leadership lessons for life.

Leading the Placement Process

Our consortium companies invest valuable time to build a talent pipeline that meets the highest quality standards of industry at large, thereby, improving career options for our students. Their inputs have been critical in designing our placement process.
