Education at SOIL is driven by distinguished faculty who have taught and consulted across the world. They help build a real time global perspective of the business world, and explore new paradigms in learning and innovation. Higher education is no longer about addressing a hundred bright minds on Marketing or Finance from a podium; but engaging them in a dialogue which is meaningful and collaborative. Using participant centric learning, our emphasis is on building leaders for the future. Students at SOIL also learn through interactions with stalwarts from industry. The aim is for participants to imbibe what it takes to be a leader who is not only competent but who has the humility, wisdom, compassion and ability to inspire others.
