This course involves a semester long study about the business environment in India. In order to appreciate the nuances of dealing with India, students are exposed to the history and culture of India, and the course culminates with a two and a half week trip to India, where many of the concepts learned in the course are personally experienced. The semester long preparation occurs through several Saturday classes (5-6 classes of 6-7 hours duration) that include exposing students to lectures, presentations, Indian Movies and panel discussions. Students do research that is then presented at these classes.
