FREE STUDY TOUR TO EUROPE/USA etc.
leading to CERTIFICATION IN GLOBAL MANAGEMENT from one of the Top 20 Global B-School/University
IIPM programmes include a FREE STUDY TOUR TO EUROPE/USA etc. for 2 weeks inclusive of Industry visits for all students under IIPM’s Global Opportunities and Threat Analysis programme (GOTA). From the batch of 2009 onwards GOTA is being taken to a completely different level all together. 100% of students joining IIPM will be doing a special course on Global Management for one week in one of the top 20 B-Schools/Universities* of the world and getting a Certificate in Global Management from the B-School/University that they attend. Students will be sent to different institutions (which will impart the programme) as per the sole discretion of IIPM. More than 7500 students have gone for IIPM’s GOTA to countries like USA, UK, Swizerland, Italy, France etc. in the last two years alone!
*The chosen B-Schools/Universities all rank amongst the top 20 in highly respected rankings like Business Week/Economist/ Financial Times etc. for the years 2006-07/2008.

          


"IIPM's efforts in bringing students to Europe is Superb..." (Prof. Guy B. Knapton, IMI Europe)
"My interactions with IIPM have good..." (Prof.Miles Dodd, France)

All IIPM students spend 2 to 3 weeks (Free of cost) in various parts of Europe and other developed countries doing their academic and corporate training under a special paper called Global Opportunities & Threat Analysis (GOTA) thanks to IIPM’s Global Outreach initiative which organizes numerous exchange programmes in typical tradition of World-Class B-schools. GOTA is designed to give students a first hand exposure to International Faculty, organizations & economies. The idea is to make the students aware of how a truly global economy works and also to bring a fresh outlook to life conducive to entrepreneurial learning. Students would be sent in study groups of minimum 15. The students should note that they do not have the choice to decide which country to visit. The institute’s faculty members would decide the same.

During the course of GOTA programme, 7/10 days are reserved exclusively for studies while on the other days students are taken around the city for sight seeing as well as industry visits. When all the students come back after their visits to various countries they share their experiences and the knowledge gained from the interactions with the other students of the institute. This creates an intellectually stimulating and exciting environment in the campus and students get a first hand experience of how things work in other countries. During the GOTA visits IIPM has conducted seminars and lectures in association with organizations /institutions like : IMD, Lausanne ; The United Nations ; ILO ; The World Bank ; Geneve Financial Centre ; Credit Suisse ; Nestle ; Insead ; IMI, Europe etc.
