The Harappa Advantage is rooted in outcome-based online learning. At the beginning of the program, we benchmark learner skills to set the baseline. The benchmarking exercise takes into account a learner’s specific context and workplace environment. The benchmark is then used to map a learner’s progress over the course of the program.
Our imaginatively-curated global faculty are a convergence of the world of work and academia, enriching course and program content with their anecdotes and fascinating lived wisdom. Meet our rockstar faculty here.
Pramath Raj Sinha (Founder & Chairman) and Shreyasi Singh (Founder& CEO) are Harappa’s chief inspirer and warrior respectively.
Pramath is a pioneering force in Indian education and has played crucial roles in establishing ISB and Ashoka University as top-notch higher education institutions in India. He has also been a media entrepreneur, education consultant and management advisor at the 9.9 Group, which he founded, the CEO of the Ananda Bazar Patrika Group, and a Partner at McKinsey & Company.
Shreyasi’s journey to entrepreneurship, and higher education, is itself symbolic of the diversity and opportunities of modern careers. She began her career as a journalist, and spent more than 10 years in media, across news agencies, broadcast and specialty print media. She was the editor of the Indian edition of Inc., the iconic American business magazine, and has written books on entrepreneurship. A few years ago, she switched to higher education, driven by how higher education can transform lives and aspirations by innovating on curriculum.
With shared roots in Bihar, their common code of values offsets their unique personalities, varied perspectives and diverse life journeys perfectly. What binds them now is their singular vision: to build a learner-centered institution of the future.
