IIMU strongly believes that leaders are best developed in a multi-cultural environment. To succeed, managers must be able to think globally; hence at IIM Udaipur, learning has no boundaries. Our initiatives to instill a global perspective are an integral part of all our activities.
Two-year MBA students have a choice of numerous options to study or work abroad for periods ranging from two weeks to three months during the course of their two-year program. The international exposure increases their understanding of the impact of cultural values and local laws and widens their personal and intellectual horizons. Opportunities include:
One Year MBA in Global Supply Chain Management (GSCM) offers the option of spending one entire semester at Purdue University in the United States. The Purdue Global Supply Chain Management component focuses on global supply chain perspectives.Unlike other one-year global supply chain management courses which include a short international component, IIM Udaipur offers the option of a full semester of five months at Purdue University, USA. The Purdue Global Supply Chain Management component provides students with a chance to learn and work with students from all parts of the world access to world-class faculty and facilities.
Many IIMU faculty members come to the Institute with broad international exposure. A number of permanent faculty members have earned their research credentials from top schools in Europe and North America. Adjunct and visiting faculty from leading business schools in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the U.A.E. enrich this mix and bring vast experience and wide-ranging points of view to the campus.
In line with IIMU's mission to provide thought leadership in research, the Institute actively supports a range of research opportunities for our faculty members so they can undertake projects and exchange ideas with leaders in their fields outside India. IIMU offers financial support for faculty members to spend a semester at a reputed research-focused international university. This would help them in improving their research capabilities, in building their research networks and in some cases in pursuing ongoing research projects. The Institute also provides financial support for faculty members to attend national and international conferences and undertake other research-related travel.
IIMU has established research relationships with various international partners. A joint research program is now in place with Duke University's Sanford School of Public Policy; four projects have been undertaken to date. Discussions are under way to create a similar program with Purdue University.
