In this era of globalization, SDMIMD has taken the lead in developing international linkages and global networks in education. Such international linkages benefit students in multiple ways. Student exchange, faculty exchange, cross-cultural study ensuring a global citizenry, ability to address critical global issues and to acquire new skills. Further, it helped the students to think and become a better decision maker. This is true in SDMIMD’s international linkage programs.
A week-long visit by a group of students from British University in Dubai (BUiD) as a part of Student Exchange was flagged off on Monday, August 22, 2016 at SDMIMD. The program helped the students learn, collaborate and be a part of the pedagogy along with SDMIMD students in academic lectures, corporate visits and group projects.
The program was inaugurated by Dr. N.R. Parasuraman, Director, SDMIMD. Dr. Parasuraman while addressing the guest students introduced SDMIMD and its 23 yearlong legacy in Management education. He gave an overview about different MBA programs offered across the globe and what makes SDMIMD different.
Dr. Parasuraman said ‘The width and depth of the offered program, course content, pedagogy, extent of company / corporate interaction and finally, ethics & social responsibility are the 5 key takeaways from any international student visit’ program.
Earlier Dr. R. Jagadeesh, Dean (Academics) and Professor – Operations, welcomed the gathering and introduced the faculty community of SDMIMD to the group.
