The Program

When you picture yourself at the beginning of your career, what comes to your mind? A cubicle. A 9-to-5 job. Building excel models to structure financial products. Hustling to launch a product in a new city. Pitching your business idea to potential investors. Being part of a larger software team working on a sub-set of a project. Researching on various positions of law and advising clients.

We are confident that most likely you will end up doing these things as part of a reputed organisation, working with good people in a steady job. And there is nothing wrong with that. If you are satisfied with this picture, you can stop reading this now. We wish you all the best for a successful career.

However, if this is not enough for you, picture this. Sitting in a village understanding the local issues and political trends. Brainstorming with your team using such insights to design an election campaign. Discussing election campaign strategy with political stakeholders. Crafting the message that shapes public opinion. Getting involved in the grass-root implementation for taking the campaign to the masses. Coming up with policy suggestions for election manifestos. Crunching data real-time to predict electoral outcomes. Observing your work having real impact on real people by solving real problems. And doing all this while supporting Prime Minister Modi and his party in their vision to build a new India.

If this sounds appealing to you, if creating real impact is your priority, then we welcome you to the Graduate Impact Leadership Program (GILP).
