Dates: May 23 – June 5, 2011. Pre-departure classes during Spring Term B.
Term: May 2011
Objective: This program provides students with a first-hand look at international business in India. Created as a partnership between Indian School of Business (ISB), International Dairy Queen (IDQ), and the Carlson School, this program challenges students with a live case study of international business in India.
The program is open to Carlson students in good academic standing, with a minimum GPA of 3.0 at the time of application. The application process is competitive, and space is limited. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance.
Hyderabad has developed into a major hub for information technology. Madhapur and the Hyderabad Information Technology Engineering Consultancy City (HITEC City) are the center of the regional IT boom. Biotechnology and pharmaceuticals are also important regional industries, and Hyderabad is home to the world's largest film studio, the Ramoji Film City. The Indian School of Business in Hyderabad is within the top 15 best global business schools in the 2010 MBA rankings by Financial Times.
Delhi is the capitol of India. As the national seat of political power and a center of commerce and culture, Delhi has grown rapidly in recent decades to become a cosmopolitan city of nearly 22.2 million residents. With a relatively high personal income level, Delhi has India's largest retail industry. As a result, land prices are booming and Delhi is ranked the seventh most expensive office city in the world.
Pre-departure class sessions familiarize students with the case they'll be researching. In India, students will spend their time in class sessions, at company site visits, and working in groups to prepare for their case presentation.
The program fee is $1,800, which covers program administration, international health insurance, housing, most course materials, transportation to all site visits, and some meals. Airfare, additional meals, personal travel, and expenses are not covered by the program fee.
