Learning is most effective and fun when it is immersive! The Department of Management Studies, Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) has included an ‘International Immersion Learning’ component to its Executive MBA Program for working professionals.

The core focus of the International Immersion Learning programme is on Global Leadership and Cultural Intelligence. Under this initiative, several students from the 2023 and 2024 batches of the Executive MBA Programme attended a 9-day immersion programme at IÉSEG School of Management in two countries and three locations – Brussels in Belgium and Paris, Lille in France.

The program included classroom sessions to get a thorough understanding of global cultures and how business is done in a region with a complex socio-cultural setup like Europe.

Students got a front seat view to the innovation and research centre in Decathlon, a glimpse into the workings of one of Europe's most renowned startup incubators, a peek into the Ports de Lille (France's Largest Inland River Port) to get a thorough grounding to France’s Transportation Network, an understanding of the complex dynamics of the European governance by members of the European Parliament and other key representatives of the European Commission, with a final touch of a socio-cultural experience in a typical French household – a soiree!

DoMS is now calling for applications for the next batch with the last date to apply being 19th October 2023. Interested candidates can apply online at https://doms.iitm.ac.in/emba/
