Executive education offerings in India are flooding the market. Everyone from top Indian and international schools to large reputable consulting firms to independent operators are promising to “educate” and “develop” senior managers. CEOs and their vice presidents of human resources are bombarded with daily requests to buy the latest and greatest in executive education.
