Apurva Mujumdar, MBA 2023, India

β€œPrior to IMD I already had 11.5 years of experience in the field of IT, education non-profits, and sustainability. Being a development sector professional, I have always tried to make an impact with my work.

With this year at IMD, I hope to reflect on my journey so far and build my capacities to be on a global platform and to transform organisations with sustainable, dignified and inclusive communities.
I am really grateful for the opportunity IMD and the Hilti scholarship has granted me.

While joining IMD has been my goal for a long time, the scholarship meant I could pursue my goal undeterred. Not only does it significantly reduce my financial burden, but I also feel encouraged by Hilti who push women in STEM like me to strive for excellence.”
