A Leader in True Sense

Mr. Ritesh Goyal is a business leader who has created his own legacy and written his own success story. He could consume himself in a corporate job like any other professional, or he could live his life earning huge profits in a conventional business. But he chose a path whose purpose was pious, but there were many difficulties in the way. Every company he founded had a noble purpose, and as a result, they all gained recognition.

Mr. Ritesh Goyal is the Chairman and Managing Director of the prestigious Goyal Group. He is also a serial entrepreneur, motivational speaker, philanthropist, personal branding business coach, consultant, and, most of all, an inspirational business leader.

His success may dazzle the world today, but he has come a long way to get here. Mr. Goyal set up seven successful ventures in cities such as Bangalore, Delhi, and Pune. His humble ventures are the Goyal Educational Trust in Bangalore, the Global Institute of Business Studies in Bangalore, the GIBS Business School in Bangalore, Pathfinder Value Creations Pvt. Ltd., the Global Business Forum with 5000 business members, and the GIBS Social Foundation.

Transformation through GIBS Business School

GIBS Business School has been an ambitious project of Mr. Goyal. This is the reason why he made all the efforts that could be made to improve this institution. Standing out from other business schools, he focused on quality education and made GIBS “a business school with a difference.”

Through the Finishing School and the IRE Lab, he gave GIBS a distinct identity. Now a one-year IRE certificate is being given along with a PGDM degree, which is going to prove to be a game changer in the field of management education. To improve the institute, he is constantly doing global tie-ups and trying to provide more and more global industry exposure to the students.

A leader is one who creates other leaders. Mr. Goel is a living example of this as well, as he has created hundreds of business leaders through his innovative programmes and various GIBS initiatives who are doing great work in their respective fields.

The transformation journey he has embarked on through the GIBS Business School has had a massive impact. This is the reason why GIBS was honoured with “Business School of the Year—South” at the same event where he received the Business Icon Award. It is always a matter of pride for a leader to see his endeavours recognized in this way.

For the kind of work Mr. Goyal is doing, he has received many other such awards and will continue to receive more in the coming years. This is another feather in his cap and a tribute to him as a leader and business icon.
