EMBA participants began their immersion week in India by visiting an orphanage for 60 children aged between 5 and 10 in Hyderabad. It was an institution to which they had contributed. The orphanage belongs to the GTSSS Mission which helps over 3600 children through its centres. The participants were received with floral crowns and songs of welcome. The EMBA students brought teaching materials, balls and other playthings for the orphans. The children sang, danced and drew pictures, sharing their games with the EMBA students. The afternoon was taken up with sports and leisure pursuits.
¨We left the orphanage charged with energy. The whole thing was an unforgettable experience¨.
The trip was part of the programme’s Third Stage: ¨Development under Complex Conditions¨. This stage includes a short stay at the renowned Indian School of Business (ISB) in Hyderabad. Here, the EMBA students underwent an intensive briefing on India´s opportunities through the course ¨Growth and Development in Emerging Markets¨. The course was given by ISB faculty and was complemented by visits to families, to companies (Schneider Electric, Tata Consulting), and through networking with Alumni.
