Nine BMI Executive MBA student executives and alumni got to know India’s business climate and culture first hand during an 8-day module on the subcontinent together with 5 participants of the EMBA programme at Warsaw University of Technology Business School (WUTBS).
The ‘India Immersion Programme’ was organized in the cities of Bangalore, Mysuru (formerly Mysoe) and Delhi, together with Chandragupt Institute of Management Patna (CIMP). It included numerous company visits, expert lectures and cultural outings.
“We not only explored the Indian market, but also got new insights and ideas about broader opportunities in today’s global business world,” said Laima Živatkauskaitė (BMI EMBA Class 17), the Vice President of INIT Corporation and one of 9 executives from BMI who took part in the module. “It was also great to network with the managers from four different BMI cohorts who took part as well as EMBA participants from the strong Polish business school” she added.
Numerous site visits included the campus where multinational IT firm Infosys recruits and trains some 20,000 software engineers a year, the Indian arm of TaeguTec – a global toolmaker controlled by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway – where they were briefed by the managing director, the Indian biotech company Biocon where they spoke with the founder and CEO, the automotive company JK Tyre, and Saankhya Labs – a producer of ground-breaking microchips for emerging communications technologies.
“This India module is a fruit of BMI’s cooperation since last year with Warsaw University of Technology Business School to enhance the mobility of EMBA participants and create more opportunities for international student interaction,” BMI Director General Jaunius Pusvaškis said. “Now we look forward to welcoming executives from WUTBS in upcoming courses at BMI and in our annual module in China,” he said.
