Genesis of CHAKRAVYUH lies in the fact that a knack for creative thinking and an aptitude for problem solving form the foundation of attributes that govern good leadership and subsequently fast-track an individual's corporate journey.It is essential that these be acquired, developed and honed at an early stage of professional training, i.e., undergraduate level, from where onwards, other skills can be built upon.
