Upon completion of this study abroad, the students will also be able to understand the nuances of the Indian political, social and economic environment that influences how business is done in the country. During this study abroad, students will get to visit historical sites in India and interact with local Indian firms as well as subsidiaries of foreign multinational companies (MNC) located in India. Students will travel to New Delhi, Agra (Taj Mahal), Jaipur and Hyderabad.
