From The Field: Business lessons abroad
Executive MBA students took business advice from some of India’s top companies
“Executive MBA students travel to an international destination during their final semester in the program. This year, the cohort visited India, allowing them to enjoy sights like the Taj Mahal while continuing their business education. Students traveled from the United States, Nigeria, Peru, and Canada for this life-changing experience. The first stop was Chennai, the capital city of the state of Tamil Nadu, and the second city was New Delhi. Students had the opportunity to visit United Nations’ sites, global PR firm Edelman India, and the only nongovernment-owned news station in India. The similarities and differences in their home countries were the basis for many discussions, including a comparison of human resource practices in India and in the U.S. ”
