We believe that the invaluable depth of the experience of these leaders far outmatches text-based knowledge accumulation, and hence GRMI prides itself in creating an experiential learning environment that is unparalleled in India today.
In current market scenario, the one thing which can easily be termed as our USP is the placement opportunities for all our students, to serve a USD 40 B+ market growing at a steady pace, however, we believe that’s an end product that we are committed to deliver, and not really our USP.
