Republic of India is the seventh-largest country by geographical area and the most populous democracy in the world. Home to the Indus Valley Civilization and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history. It is now emerging as one of the most acting economies of the world.
The program takes place in Noida, an industrial district of Delhi, capital of India. Delhi, a city of contrasts, is one of the most fascinating places a person can visit. One of the oldest cities and home to countless earlier cultures, Delhi is now one of the most progressive.
This course examines techniques of industry and competitive analysis and ways of applying these techniques to gain a better understanding of industry trends and company strategies in sectors of significant importance to the regional economy.
The program, offered in collaboration with the Multinational Business Academy, located in Noida, Delhi, will consist of two preparatory classes in Boston followed by two full weeks of classes in India. Time spent in India will be divided among lectures, discussion, and company visits, with some student presentations.
This program is offered to graduate students of College of Management. Participants can earn up to six elective credits in the UMass Boston MBA Program.
