A Global Perspective


A Global Perspective

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.

For two year MBA students:

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:

  • Student Exchange Program – IIMU has agreements with leading business schools in Germany and France for reciprocal student exchanges. Students spend a full semester on the exchange and scholarships are available to defray some of the costs.
    • In France:
      • EDHEC
      • EM Normandie
      • IESEG
      • KEDGE
    • In Germany:
      • HHL Leipzig School of Management
      • European Business School
      • Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg
  • International Business in Practice (IBP) – a second year elective course during which student teams undertake two-week consulting projects for clients in locations like Bangkok and Dubai
  • International Corporate Internship – A number of two year MBA students undertake their Corporate Internships abroad. Past locations have included Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, London and Malaysia

For PGPX students:

PGPX is unique among Indian one year MBAs: It is a dual degree program that is a full partnership between IIMU and the prestigious Krannert School of Management at Purdue University in the United States, one of the world leaders in the SCM domain. Unlike other one year programs which include a short international component, PGPX offers a full semester of five months at Purdue University where students have access to world-class faculty and facilities and the chance to learn and work with students from all parts of the world.

Students graduate with an MS-GSCM degree from Purdue and a Post Graduate Diploma for Executives with a specialization in GSCM from IIM Udaipur.

For Faculty:

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.

Summer School for Future Leaders in Development:

The Summer School is a joint program organized by IIMU and the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University, USA. It brings together students from Duke, students from prominent Indian universities and early career staff members from Indian non-governmental organizations (NGOs). It is aimed at future development leaders seeking careers in the academic field, in practical areas of development and in related sectors dealing with contemporary socio-political challenges.
