Location Description

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, the 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.

Program Description

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.
