- TGELS is a ten-day seminar delivered three times a year – twice at TMTC Pune and once at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA.
- TGELS has been designed jointly by TMTC, Tata Group HR and the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan.
- The methodology for the seminar is based on interactive lectures, case studies, psychometrics and project work on live business issues.
