International Immersion Programme (IIP)

Participants spend two weeks during the course of the program in an international location.

The intention of this module is to equip participants to appreciate the dynamics and implication of globalization and to understand cross-cultural dimensions.

  • The Institutions for the International Immersion will be allocated by the area chairperson and shared with the participants one month in advance.
  • The IIP is an academic activity which is graded.
  • All participants should submit all deliverables within one week of their return from IIP.
  • Participants shall fulfil the requirements of the host institutions as per their norms for completing the evaluations.
  • Participants who do not opt for International Immersion will be given an Individual Research Project to be submitted.


The courses are delivered using a mix of various pedagogical methods such as case discussions, lectures, simulations, business games, seminars and practitioners sessions.

Lectures and class discussions would be supplemented by case discussions. The objective of the case discussion is to ensure that the students are able to relate the concepts with real life business situations and interactions. This ensures that the decision making adeptness of participants is honed in a pseudo business environment.

The course will substantially rely on experiential approaches such as role-plays, exercises, games and simulations so that the students are able to assimilate their own learning points from these experiences.

As part of each subject, participants would be assigned projects requiring application /study of the concepts in their work environment. The objective is to help in better assimilation, retention and transfer of learning to their immediate workplace. The study would be done in the intermittent period between the on campus classes. Assistance required might be sought from course faculty or company mentors.
