"My Association with Axis goes back to Axis Ahead Summer internship program. I interned with Private Banking team of Axis Bank and was offered a PPO.!! :). Axis Ahead MT Program gives one a lot of opportunities to experience different aspects of Banking. The idea of rotating through Functional stints is great and gives one a lot of exposure. The enriching work assignments, helpful team, great work culture, good work life balance are the USPs of Axis. I am sure this joyful journey with Axis will be even more joyous in the years to come. Cheers!! "

"The Axis Ahead MT program gives an opportunity to the young bankers to experience each and every function of the bank. With the retail and rural stint being an integral part, the program helps all understand the nitty-gritty of the company and the industry. The rotation policy and short stint of 3 months across different departments, helps the trainees take an informed decision regarding the final posting. Also, regular exposure and interaction with the top management and leaders help boost morale of the trainees."

“Axis Ahead program has a very structured and holistic approach towards developing future leaders for the bank. It will indeed keep you 'ahead' in your career progression. The good mix of customer facing roles at branches, rural immersion program and functional department stints has benefitted me in getting a wholesome view of the bank and above all, of the industry. My peers in the Axis Ahead program have always motivated me and provided me with some of the great insights inside as well as outside the bank. The top management is very accessible to MTs and they provide all the necessary support whenever required. I can assure all the future MTs that you will have a very smooth cruise towards your career goals in the Axis Ahead program. After all, Axis Bank believes that 'Badhti Ka Naam Zindagi.....'”
