President’s Message


Dr. Prashant Bhalla, President MREI

MREI has been successfully fostering leaders for two decades now. Students learn the skill required to work together to meet or address leadership challenges through problem-based learning. They are able to step into zones of certainty and uncertainty both with confidence and humility in order to engage others in working toward a common goal. Across 20 years, a differentiating factor of MREI is the encouragement students receive to look inward first to identify their own values before moving forward as a leader. As always, as foreseen by visionary founder Dr. O P Bhalla, MREI has supported would-be leaders in understanding and applying the best of leadership theory in their own personal, supervisory, team and strategic contexts for 20 years. The mark of excellence continues, by offering an innovative approach to learning and practicing leadership through experiential method and attention to students as whole people.

Here, the learning processes engage people in meaningful dialogue and inquiry to co-create new answers to seemingly intractable challenges. Students get in touch with who they are, who they want to be as a leader and how they show up as a leader. They also reflect on where they were, where they’re at and where they want to go in the future. The programmes begin with self and ripple outward from there. They help develop leadership skills around understanding how our very presence alone has an impact on the organization and the outcomes for the world. We feel proud to have a distinctive intellectual tradition that thrives on research plus innovation and academic rigour. Our CDC accelerates this endeavour. That’s why MREI continues to move forward.

As we move forward, we continue to find ways to meet student expectations and provide them with the quality attention they need and deserve. We set high expectations for our students and establish engaging curricula and learning environments. We provide students with skills and experiences needed to succeed in a complex, technology-driven, global society. Our global-tie ups and illustrious corporate tie ups provide launch platforms for students. Our theme on this 20th year centres on excellence in sports to nurture excellence in studies and wholesome development of students.

Welcome to a global world, where you come not just to study but to absorb a universe and an ethos of challenging yesterday and asking big questions about tomorrow.
