American students here to learn business tricks

With a view to interact with business leaders and acquire new insights into the regional economy, over 150 students from the United States-based Duke University's Fuqua School of Business are now in New Delhi. The group is part of the Duke MBA-Cross Continent programme which takes students through Fuqua's six global locations in India, China, Russia, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and Duke University's campus in Durham, North Carolina.

The 16-month programme is designed for full-time working professionals and aims to provide a global perspective on business through immersing students in international business and cultural experiences and balances classroom and experiential learning.

Acknowledging the need to give students an exposure to social, political and economic environments in important countries of the world, the course recognizes that "India is one such geography" and is "one of the most important cultural and industrial hubs and will continue to play a central role in the world's economy through the 21st century".

The residency includes corporate classroom lectures, corporate visits and meetings with business leaders. The university also plans to set up a full fledged campus in India.
