Students of IIM Ahmedabad's Post-Graduate Programme for Executives (PGPX) recently completed immersion visits at universities around the world. They spent two weeks in Hong Kong, France, or the United Kingdom at leading business schools - The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), ESCP, and Warwick Business School.

The immersion programme gives students an opportunity to learn from leading academicians and from first hand accounts of native business leaders about the nuances of doing business in those markets.

A significant component of the immersion programme involved visits to local businesses and engaging with the top management of those companies. The companies visited this year included Compton Verney, DCS, Delphi, and Unipart Logistics in the UK; CNES, Airbus Defence and Space, IBM, Schneider Electric, and Louis Vuitton in France; and Hong Kong Gold & Silver Exchange, Pacific Andes, Hong Kong Exchange, Swift in Hong Kong. The meetings offered close-quartered networking opportunities for participants.

The PGPX students bring an average of over three years of diverse international out of an overall ten years of experience. They often therefore choose to visit markets that they are less familiar with or which they see themselves doing business with in their post MBA leadership roles.
