I met Team Manipal (both management and faculty) at a conference, and the first thing that struck me was their professionalism and expertise. Their friendliness further encouraged me to engage with them. Among all the institutions offering Architecture programs, with equally qualified and experienced faculty, Manipal stood out because of its ability to quickly grasp the system complexity and our expectations. Manipal has an impeccable blend of technical as well as business understanding. Practitioners who understand the academic side of training is always a big advantage.


Manipal’s flexibility and openness to feedback added further value to their program delivery. Despite having a great curriculum to begin with, the team was flexible about accommodating changes as and when required. There were times when they themselves raised requests to relook into the program design and delivery details based on our requirements and participant profiles. The faculty members are very understanding and extremely receptive to feedback. I have seen great resilience more than once!


Manipal programs have been incredibly successful. Reporting managers of the participants as well as the leadership team agree that the participants have been able to take on larger roles and responsibilities following the training program. The high success rates of the programs has made Manipal an integral part of EMC’s learning initiatives and therefore the Architecture Leadership Program continues to remain an important priority for us. Endorsements from senior management and the leadership team shows how comfortable we are with this engagement, and we truly value the synergy created by this relationship.
