  • Fabian Cowan

    Vice President, Brandscope India

    Session Name: Out of Home Management

    "The Northpoint students are really interested in knowing more than what they are being taught particularly in the Out of Home space, because it's so noticeable that they are already exposed to other kinds of media; the ability to capture what is happening in the Out of Home space was really really unique. The experience that the faculty bring along, because they are professionals in the field for the last 14-15 years, helps immensely."

  • Saurabh Karandikar

    Session Name: The Role of Design in Brand Communications

    "Here you have an environment which will be envied by others; the kind of isolation that nature has provided will put students in a different frame of mind. The students are more receptive, more enthusiastic and I get to learn a lot too. At Northpoint, I think part of the student's time is spent on activities apart from academics."

  • Kavita Acharekar

    Manager - CR Client Service, The Nielsen Company
