Global Student Exchange Programme
GSEP

Under the Global Student Exchange Programme at IIPM, Undergraduate and Graduate students of management institutes and universities from all across the world visit various IIPM campuses in India for a duration varying between three weeks and one trimester. After the successful completion of the programme, the students receive academic credits for the same.

During the entire phase of theirIIPM stay, the international students who come down to the IIPM campuses do not need to bear any tuition fees for their course in IIPM under our reciprocal arrangement with partner institutions, and need to bear only the cost of their food and accommodation. Under certain specific cases, accommodation is provided to these international students at the residences of IIPM students to give them a feel of Indian customs and culture.

It is a firm belief at IIPM International that the globalised world requires more managers who can effectively and efficiently function in a multi-cultural environment. This is the reason why at IIPM International more stress is given to help these international students develop cross-cultural management skills, social skills and language skills. It also helps these students to explore more growth opportunities across the world.

Some of the Universities which participate in GSEP State University - Higher School of Economics, Moscow Students from HSE, Moscow visited the IIPM Campus at Delhi for a period of 2 weeks to undergo an advanced course in Strategy and Marketing Management. During their stay, they got an opportunity to visit McDonald’s training centre in India to understand McDonald’s India marketing mantra, and later to visit ITC e-Choupals in villages in Western Uttar Pradesh to understand rural marketing initiatives by one of India’s largest business conglomerates. They also enjoyed the best of Indian hospitality as they were accommodated at residences of IIPM students. This enabled the students to get a true flavor of 'Indianism' along with the best academic inputs from the institute.
