Darden MBA, EMBA and GEMBA students study in Bangalore, Mumbai and New Delhi
For the first time, students from all three of Darden’s degree formats – the MBA, MBA for Executives and Global MBA for Executives (GEMBA) have spent the past week in Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi as part of the India Global Business Experience (GBE) course and GEMBA global residency.
The GEMBA students are enjoying a rigorous schedule of courses in marketing, strategy and operations in Mumbai and Delhi led by Darden professors Raj Venkatesan, Scott Snell, Marc Modica, and Tim Laseter. Courses are punctuated by company visits and top-level guest speakers.
The GBE, led by Darden professor Casey Lichtendahl, is developing a deeper understanding of the Indian business context through a focus on data science and technology in Bangalore and Delhi, visiting leading firms, meeting with scholars and fellow MBA students at IIM-Bangalore and hearing from leading executives.
All of the students have had opportunities to explore and develop a deeper understanding of India’s culture and history and how this shapes the business environment.
Here is a glimpse into the GBE and GEMBA activities in India thus far:
