Its growing economic, military and diplomatic powers have made India a key player in the global arena. The India Inside immersion programme provides western policymakers, regulators and decision-makers, a holistic overview of the Indian context, as well as specific insights into policy and regulatory issues, customised to the needs of the participants.
A growing number of multinationals are deputing their best talent to India at senior levels for delivering value in the Indian business. Indian companies are also turning to foreign leadership in an increasingly competitive market. However, it takes more than just functional skill to succeed in leadership roles in India. Understanding the Indian context, culture and business realities are equally important for delivering effective results. The India Inside immersion programme will act as an induction to precisely that.
It is no longer sufficient to master the functional skills of traditional MBA programmes. To lead in the globalised world, it is essential to learn about emerging market realities, understand the dynamic and innovative business models that deliver value in these markets, and appreciate the differences in cultural nuances and consumer behaviour across geographies. In tune with this, the best EMBA programmes now incorporate understanding of the emerging market issues as a core part of their curriculum. ISB, through the India Inside programme is the strategic partner for this, customising it to the needs of the partner business school. By doing so, you can make your programme more globally relevant, and provide a winning edge to your participants.
