It was the opportunity to explore the world’s fastest-growing economy in person that inspired Tyler Park, MBA ’23, to join Quinnipiac’s recent MBA in India global learning cohort of students.
“I chose to go to India because for me it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Park. “The India business environment is drastically different from the western world.”
During winter break, 10 students from the university’s MBA program spent 12 days exploring India and studying how economic, social and political issues affect international markets.
Led by Professor Mohammad Elahee and Director of International Student Services Sarah Driscoll, the group visited business houses and locations throughout Delhi, Mumbai and Agra, studying the rich traditions and vibrant culture of Indian history and daily life.
“Our business relationship in the future will grow more with non-European nations, and particularly with countries in South and East Asia and Africa,” said Elahee, who has spearheaded more than 20 student global learning trips during his career. “India recently overtook China as the largest population in the world. And while China has evolved to become the manufacturing hub of the world, India has emerged as our global IT service capital. Indian businesses are experimenting with many innovative approaches to fight climate change. We can learn new techniques for ensuring sustainable development from India.”
