Amrita smiles and says the Cultural differences, environment conditions, arranged marriages; she rattles some of the topics. “In the class, very concept was discussed in relation to Norway, India and America and those used to be the best parts, which also made us aware the happenings around the world.
Experiences galoreWhat followed was an intensive learning experience with solid practical exposure. How often do management aspirants from India get to visit the premises of International biggies like Walmart, Bayer and Heinz Field. When you get such an opportunity, you grab it with both hands and make your mark. Amrita did just that when she visited the Walmart Distribution centre of Pennsylvania. “I raised a lot of questions there, which were quite appreciated by the Operational Manager. Those questions and the confidence to ask them came from my training at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore,” she says strongly.
