Kavita Lakhani

Kavita Lakhani, President, LinOpinion Public Relations, Lowe Lintas India and  Co-Chair, Mumbai, WLN India ranked No. 1 by premier Indian B-School in Advanced Program in Strategic Management

In 2010, the Lowe Lintas Employees Welfare Trusts invited applications for its Study Scholarship Scheme.  The Scheme part sponsors the cost of post-graduation, professional and/or other technical courses which a beneficiary wishes to pursue.

A post-graduate degree in financial management, Kavita was granted the Scholarship.  She used the funds to pursue an Advanced Program in Strategic Management at the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta, which is widely considered to be amongst the best B-schools in India.

The 9-month long Program, which concluded in August 2011, was conducted though video conference, short campus visits, presentations and group assignments.  The batch of 60 (of which only 7 were women) comprised of leaders and senior managers of companies like Microsoft, JP Morgan, American Express, Philips, Mastek, Avaya, Piaggio, SAP, TCS, Bausch & Lomb, Oracle, Cisco and Bharti Airtel.

“It was always my dream to study at IIM Calcutta which is renowned for its Strategic Management Programs.  Topping the batch all-India was quite unexpected!  I am glad the hard work and multi-tasking over the last few months have paid off.  I believe my professional inputs to Lowe Lintas/LinOpinion clients will be positively impacted and further enhanced, owing to this learning.”
