India destination for US varsity residency programme

Wednesday December 21, 2011 05:36:17 PM, Arun Kumar, IANS

Washington: A Southern California based doctoral research university is launching its third global residency programme next month in India and has plans to add two more in the future.

"The Indian Economy and the Epicentre of Globalization" is a one-week residency in Mumbai from Jan 1 to 8 for University of California, Riverside School of Business Administration undergraduate students, graduate students and alumni.

It joins similar one-week residency programmes in England and China that were started the past two years, the university announced Tuesday. Future plans call for adding programmes in Russia and Brazil.

"The programmes expose students to emerging markets and give them global experience in an academic, business and cultural environment," said Sean Jasso, who organizes the trips and is a lecturer of management at the School of Business Administration.

The programmes started in spring 2010 with a weeklong residency at the University of Oxford in England. In 2011, students returned to Oxford and added Guangzhou and Shenzhen, China in June of that year.

In 2012, students will return to those two countries and travel to India from Jan 1 to 8. The past trips and the upcoming trip to India have drawn about 80 students.

The residency in India will explore the strategic issues that US and foreign multinationals face when doing business in India. Lecture topics include India as a transitional economy, Mumbai's economy, financing in India, culture and leadership in India and India's future economic growth.

Participants will visit Tata Consultancy Service; L&T Infotech, a global IT services and solutions provider; the US Chamber of Commerce; and the National Stock Exchange.
