This program helped us to open up our thought process and have a multi dimension approach towards problem solving. Program introduce us to many fields which we may hardly use but it's definitely good to know. It definitely helped us to understand organizations better and appreciate various functions in the organization. GMPE course also inspired me to read up the books later as well.
