Axis Bank and the Indian School of Business have joined hands to foster diversified leadership among women in the banking industry.
As per the tie-up, Axis Bank will recruit women students doing the post-graduate programme at ISB, keen on pursuing a career in banking.
ISB has 216 women students out of a total 770 students pursuing the one-year, post-graduate programme at the Hyderabad and Mohali campuses.
The Axis Bank-ISB Women Leadership Programme called ‘We Lead’ is claimed to be the first such programme in the country under such a partnership.
Already, the bank has selected 12 students for different roles, after the completion of their course.
Upon successful completion of the program and the selection process, the students get an opportunity to work with Axis Bank across diverse roles. Along with this, students are awarded a leadership certification, a release said.
