“The program participants have to visit a foreign land for in-company projects, visit a partner institution with similar program objectives, and earn credits as part of the global curriculum. The international immersion develops awareness about cultural and communication diversities and helps understand the region's economic, business and geopolitical environment. The in-company project helps them understand the global business processes and practices while comparing and contrasting with those in India and being aware of the disruptive technologies shaping the business processes and practices. By attending lectures at a foreign campus and interacting with professionals, they widen their personal and intellectual horizons to be more confident in leading businesses in the global context. The choice of courses is in conformation with the program competency goals with the region's flavour and is expected to be diverse from those experienced at IIM Shillong.
The international module of the program in the past has been facilitated by inputs and knowledge sharing by faculty from Fudan University, China; Ocean University, China; University of Newcastle, Australia; EM Lyon Business School, France; IE Business School, Spain; etc. The program participants in the past have spent substantial time understanding the distinctiveness of innovations, business practices, and management styles in China. In 2023, the batch visited Barcelona, Spain, attended classes at EADA Business School, and completed five courses. They also visited multiple industries, undertook live projects in four reputed European companies, and presented business solutions to CXOs.”
