There is a need for effective leaders who can understand and take on the multidisciplinary challenges that need to be addressed at multiple levels,” said an official in the Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways.

The programme on ‘Leadership Programme in Infrastructure Management’ in ISB aims at developing skills and competencies relating to multiple disciplines like strategic planning, finance, economics, law, social and environmental issues and public policy in infrastructure management.

Indian School of Business has selected eight NHAI officers after stringent scrutiny and evaluation. Four officers, including chief general managers, general manager and deputy general manager, have commenced training in this year with funding support from NHAI. 

NHAI is planning to create a pool of officers who can play a critical role in ensuring the utmost professional capability to shoulder the responsibilities at senior management level and guide the NHAI towards its long term vision.
