Five students won the eight edition of Godrej LOUD at the Godrej headquarters in Vikhroli. 10 students from India’s top business schools presented their unfulfilled personal dreams as part of the Godrej LOUD (Live Out Ur Dream) 2019 finale. Godrej LOUD is a campus recruitment programme to find young and passionate first year business school students with diverse interests outside of work.

The finalists presented their dreams to a jury of senior Godrej leaders,including Nisaba Godrej, Executive Chairperson, Godrej Consumer Products Limited, Vivek Gambhir, Managing Director and CEO, Godrej Consumer Products Limited and Parmesh Shahani, Head - Godrej India Culture Lab.

Speaking on this radically different approach to business school recruitment, Ms. Nisaba Godrej, Executive Chairperson, Godrej Consumer Products Limited, said, "LOUD enables us to have much deeper conversations with students on campus and get to know them beyond their resumes.We believe that passionate, well-rounded individuals with diverse interests make for better Godrejites. We understand that our team members play multi-faceted roles and this is why we encourage them not just to explore their whole selves but also create an enabling space for them to do so. Godrej LOUD is our endeavour to find passionate young leaders and enable them to bring that same passion and their ‘whole selves’ to Godrej."
