For student groups traveling to India to get an immersive experience of culture, as well as to study the unique business scenarios and methods of India, we offer comprehensive support in designing itineraries, planning detailed agendas, and delivering experiences. We work with a number of reputed universities (USA, Europe and Australia) to work with the organizers to realize the maximum potential from such excursions.
We plan industry visits for a variety of industries in India including Media, IT, Pharma, Hospitals, Furniture, Movie. Some of these are traditional and typical Indian family run companies, BPO’s. Some are old companies handed down through generations, and some are startups. Some are success stories, and some are stories illustrating struggles and missteps. In all, every visit is carefully planned to ensure it offers deepinsights to the student to enrich their research and maximize gain.
In combination with industry visits, we also facilitate business studies, with unique local business models, like NGO’s working to empower women, or set in slumsor in urban poorer areas like Washerman’s village or Pottery Town, where we study the businesses of Washermen or Potters or Garbage Up-cycling businesses.
A perfect compliment to the above exercises are Culture Infusions which we give through city tours or through workshops (cookouts, Bollywood dance lessons, yoga sessions or dress-up sessions). These are lighter
Our in-house Culture Experts also work in interesting presentations topics to offer insights into undercurrents that influence India’s workings and the way we treat each other: like the Caste System of India, or the Position of Women in Society. These presentations create a good backdrop for observational studies, and answer many questions about the reasons for the way things work in India.
Our Student Excursions may be short or long durational, and are conducted with across various touch points all over India, with a customized program and itinerary.
Students in local schools and universities within whose curriculum might be a study of a certain foreign nation or nationality, benefit greatly from our guest lecture series, which offer insights into the workings of a foreign culture. These sessions are custom tailored based on the subject of interest of the host students, and most importantly are delivered by a person who is a native of the culture being studied. Hence, these workshops are first hand, authentic, and offer proximity. The sessions are interactive and create great impact.
Students of History, Sociology, Business, Travel, Commerce, Psychology and Geography would draw an obvious and direct benefit, whereas students of other subjects too would less directly gain from such sessions. We work with the teachers to ensure the course material is tailored to match the organization’s core values and the academic curriculum.
We help students who are keen to work as interns in the area of Social Work, to gather experience working with NGO’s especially in the area of community empowerment and education. We work with universities and schools, and also with students directly, to advise them and create roles for them based on their leanings and passion, in liaison with powerful organizations that have already created significant impact.These internships are mutually beneficial, and also help the students create long-term relationships with the organisations that they intern with. Some of the organizations we work with are PROVISION ASIAproVISION ASIA, ANU LIFE and JOY@WORK
