Application Deadline: Check with faculty leader (see below) for deadline
With one of the youngest populations in the world and an increasingly wealthy middle class, India is a part of the world that every business student must understand. There is no better way to do that than visit the country with expert faculty, interact with Indian business executives and students, and experience the culture and diversity firsthand. Every large company in the Greater Puget Sound region has deep ties with India, either through subsidiaries or partnerships. Microsoft, Boeing, Google, Starbucks, Amazon, PACCAR, Expeditors… all have significant operations on the subcontinent. Spending time in India will help you in your job and job interviews with these kinds of companies. India gives the opportunity to see how nearly 20% of the world actually lives and to understand the challenges facing a nation that is both technologically developed, but also deeply traditional and tied to a culture that spans 10,000 years. Compared to other countries or locations that have a similar Western culture as the United States, India offers the opportunity to experience a part of the world that is very different. Traveling with a group of your peers and two highly knowledgeable and experienced faculty members is a great way to experience and learn about a stunning part of the world. You will forever be changed.
