Message from Shobha Meera

“As an alumna of IIM-A, I am thrilled to represent the E.L.I.T.E. program, our General Management Program designed with the top talent from business schools in mind. It will be exciting to have you work with my leadership team and I on compelling and challenging initiatives as we push new frontiers.”

Message from Jack Dugan

“From my experience, there are very few General Management Programs that offer Trainees the chance to experience so comprehensively the high-level strategic and operational workings of a global consulting leader, including how this translates across 40 countries. We’re offering you international exposure plus visibility to our most senior leaders – a truly unique program.”

Message from Claire Sauvanaud

“The program will be hugely rewarding for Trainees. We expect Trainees to be proactive, ask questions, and work hard to aid their development – success is in their hands! We are also convinced that the Trainees will come with fresh and out of the box ideas that are beneficial to us all.”

Message from Ian Campos

“As the product of a General Management Program myself, I understand the value that well-structured programs can deliver to Trainees, and the potential for accelerated career trajectories in the medium-term. I have been associated with Capgemini for nearly 20 years and the E.L.I.T.E program is a unique platform for high-performing Trainees to reach senior management levels within the span of a decade, and be leading business lines and functions of a global consulting and technology leader”

Global Insurance Services Leader, Capgemini Financial Services

Charlotte, USA


Message from John Mullen

“As a services firm committed to making a difference every day for our clients and the markets we serve, human talent (individual and collective) is who and what we are.  Attracting and developing leading professionals is our hallmark.  Supporting those professionals to ensure that they are able to develop their skills and career under the tutelage and drive of seasoned professionals is our employment brand commitment.  It is a given that we will lose talent to the marketplace as an E.L.I.T.E. Trainee chooses her or his path … It is our goal that the training ground of the E.L.I.T.E. program will stay with these professionals as the foundation upon which they learn professionalism, risk taking, ethical practice of their craft, and the importance of the connective tissue of people culture and client”

Head of Applications Services, Capgemini North America

Message from Shinichi Tonomura

“As a leadership team we realize the need for senior-level mentorship and networking throughout E.L.I.T.E. Trainees’ journey with the firm, both for the first 12 months as well as on their 10-year accelerated journey to senior management levels”

Managing Director, Capgemini Financial Services Asia, Middle East and Japan




Message from Amit Choudhary

“I am very excited about this program! As an IIM-C alumnus, it is a chance for me to not only reconnect with the campuses but also engage with the new generation of leaders.  The program will not stop after the 12-month boot camp, and I am keen to on-board Management Trainees into my business in key strategic roles at the end of 12 months”
