Acumen is now accepting applications for its Fellows Program in India!

The India Fellows Program is a leadership development program that focuses on developing the next generation of social change leaders for India. Fellows can be working in any sector (non-profit, for-profit, government), on any issue, and can be either entrepreneurs or intrapreneurs. The year-long program is structured like an “executive MBA” where Fellows remain in their jobs and meet for several week-long seminars over the course of the fellowship year.

On graduation, all Fellows become part of a global Alumni network that they can leverage for support and collaboration.
