The program, aimed at preparing individuals for the rigors of an MBA program, pushed students to step out of their comfort zones and take risks.

For many participants, submitting the application for SVMP was a nerve-wracking experience, with the fear of rejection looming over them. However, once accepted into the program, students were placed in small teams where they led internal case discussions. This environment allowed them to test new ideas, hone their leadership skills, and learn the importance of taking calculated risks.

Despite initial fears of failure, students gradually gained confidence in articulating their thoughts and ideas. They were given the opportunity to deliver speeches at the closing ceremony, challenging them to conquer their fear of public speaking.

Throughout the program, participants were encouraged to embrace a sense of community, push past their fears, and take risks in order to achieve personal and professional growth. SVMP also provided valuable insights into the resources and value associated with an MBA degree, giving students a preview of how it could complement their career goals.
