This seminar is a sharply focused, four and a half week experience sponsored by the Marriott School’s Global Management Center. Classes will be held at the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford by Oxford professors, where students will learn the skills, theory, and practice of global business and leadership. The seminar will give students a chance to work on a real-life global project(s) for a business based in India. Participants in the program will also be exposed to Oxford’s rich history and culture and have the opportunity to take nearby excursions to Stonehenge, Bath, the Salisbury Cathedral, London, and other sites.
Students will then fly to Hyderabad, India, to continue the project(s) in country. These projects will be more than just business projects; they will be projects that help local micro-enterprises or growing businesses improve thus improving lives and economy. In India, the group will visit Golconda Fort, the Charminar District in Hyderabad, and then travel to see the Agra Fort in Agra, the spice market of Delhi, the Amer fort and step wells in Jaipur, and the Taj Mahal. One of the best ways to experience India for the first time is with a group leader who is experienced and can help navigate the amazing culture, this is one of those trips.
The program is open to all majors. Students can expect to develop real-life international business, marketing, and strategy experience.
