Housing & Meals

Housing & Meals

Study abroad students are placed in student hostels near Welingkar. Male students live in the “Boys Hostel,” just three bus stops, about 15 minutes, away from campus. A taxi or rickshaw are faster methods of travel to and from Welingkar. Female students live in the “Girls Hostel,” which is a five-minute walk from campus.

The hostels have 24-hour security and an 11:30 p.m. curfew for all students. Students may be able to come in after curfew by alerting the guard on duty about their plans, but are expected to honor the rules in place like other Indian students in the dormitory. It should be noted that female students can expect their hostel rules to be more strictly enforced and in-line with other cultural norms related to gender and Indian society. The on-site orientation period will cover these and other related issues important to students’ assimilation into typical Indian university life.

Each floor has a bathroom that includes western toilets, showers, and sinks. There is also a small cooking space on each floor.

This is done through the required lecture series: International Business and Economic Development in India, which includes guided site visits to international businesses, corporate offices, NGOs, and related organizations in Mumbai.

International Business and Economic Development in India

This required program component takes place during alternative weeks during the semester and more intensively during the multi-day excursion to Delhi, Gurgaon, and Agra following the academic term at Welingkar. The lecture series is a carefully planned learning intervention that combines a structured set of lectures, cultural training workshops, and site visits for you to utilize the knowledge gained from your semester at Welingkar. Topics include: “Bollywood and the Use of Bollywood in Marketing,” “Family-Based Enterprise,” and “Local and Global Entrepreneurship.”

During an industry site visit, you'll have direct interaction with management and marketing executives and local scholars. You will be expected to participate in and contribute to all activities related to the lecture series as a condition of acceptance to the program and to the importance of collaboration and group work that ensures that the program’s ethos of collective learning and intellectual inquiry are upheld. This component of the study abroad program is designed and led by the CIEE resident director.

In the past, students have visited a global telecommunications firm (Aircel), diamond cutting and distribution firm, Mumbai TV station, and large cosmetics firm. The type and number of site visits will vary from term to term based on availability of organizations to host.

In addition, you'll enjoy many of the amazing cultural sites in both Delhi and Agra including the Tak Mahal, Agra Fort, Aksharsham Temple, the Lotus Temple, Qutubminar, Humayun's Tomb, and the Purana Killa.

Language Partners

CIEE recruits language partners with language tutoring experience in Mumbai to serve as teachers and cultural informants for study abroad program students. CIEE organizes meetings and ongoing feedback between students and their language partners throughout the term. Language partners are encouraged to meet individually with students in various venues, including neighborhoods and businesses, in order to apply practical use of the language at the appropriate level. Students with Hindi language proficiency may choose to learn the local Marathi language.

However, as you gain proficiency in Hindi, resident staff encourage you to use your language skills in everyday settings. The more you participate, the more a community that contributes to Hindi language proficiency and understanding of Indian society develops.

Academics

Academic Program

CIEE started its new India study abroad program focusing on International Business and Culture (IBC) in fall 2010. Students are provided the exclusive opportunity to study various aspects of management, entrepreneurship, and business design in a direct enrollment environment with local Indian MBA-level students and a small number of other exchange students from the EU at Welingkar Institute of Management Development and Research.

Most recently, CIEE and Welingkar have co-developed two elective courses to better meet the needs of the CIEE and international graduate students enrolled there. The contemporary India course provides business students a holistic picture of India and its growth and development over the last five decades. The course focuses on various topics about modern India like religion and society, emerging markets, pre- and post-independence economic changes just to name a few. The entrepreneurship theory and practice course has been developed to give students an idea of how entrepreneurs influence business in India—the legal and political issues faced, consumer behavior study, consumption patterns and trends, and Glocalisation (adapting global products and services as per local requirements). At the end of the course students are equipped with the knowledge of setting up a business to launch a product or service in India.

The above two courses are highly recommended by CIEE as it is designed to help American students get a complete understanding of the country and the business scenario in India.

CIEE study abroad students also enroll in one 13-week academic term, which includes required corporate and cultural site visits during the course that supplement learning following the academic term, plus a week of cultural site visits to Delhi and Agra at the end of the term.

The Hindi I language course meets twice each week for two hours. Students in the Hindi I course are required to take an additional 20 hours of supplemental one-on-one language practice outside of the classroom which are held in real situations (like a market place, taxi drive) to further enhance their understanding and use of Hindi in the context of Mumbai.

There is an ongoing orientation of Mumbai including visit to the markets, caves, festival sites, museums, and places of historical and cultural importance. Students gain first-hand experience of local trade, where they learn how to bargain, attend guest lectures by industry professionals, and visit manufacturing units and companies which give them insights and perspective into the practical, real-life business scenario.

After participating in coursework at Welingkar, students demonstrate deeper knowledge of trends in the global marketplace and Indian markets; multi-cultural leadership skills as a result of taking part in various group projects with Indian peers; considerable familiarity and mastery of the business concepts and management techniques acquired in the classroom through successful exams, group project work, and final papers; and expertise on Mumbai’s role in the global marketplace and national economy. In addition, they are able to read and write Hindi, communicate with the locals in the local language, and understand the importance of certain religious and cultural nuances. This allows the students to develop new vocabulary and focus on topics that are of direct personal interest to their future career in global management or international business.

Academic Culture

The learning pedagogy at Welingkar Institute includes classroom lectures, discussions, case studies, interactive sessions, workshops, group projects, presentations, and industry assignments. Companies from various industries collaborate with Welingkar on course-based industry assignments and roundtables throughout each term.

A large number of working, industry professionals teach classes. This gives students the opportunity to work on real life case studies and often assist on live projects. However, the classes often get re-scheduled due to changes in instructor’s availability. During certain weeks, make-up classes may be held on Saturdays or Sundays which is in line with the expectations of local India students in the classes.

Welingkar also works with international companies across various industries for summer internships and hiring, as well as with a growing number of entrepreneurial start-ups and socially-minded businesses located in India.

The pedagogy at Welingkar is considered to be amongst one of the most innovative and student-centered business school curriculums in India today. The academic and intellectual environment is very demanding and requires students to be fully engaged in their courses and group project work that is an integral component of most courses.

The Hindi language courses are taught in both a task-based and communicative manner to ensure that students make the most of their language coursework while on the program.

Nature of Classes

Welingkar courses range in size from 40 to 60 students. The majority of students in the classes are Indian and in the first or second year of their MBA program. Study abroad students are strongly encouraged to enroll in the new contemporary India and entrepreneurship course, designed for foreign students, and Hindi, to assist them with their understanding and assimilation into Indian student culture. The students can therefore choose from two to five direct enrollment classes with Welingkar students.

Grading System

In all Welingkar courses, students are graded on the basis of class participation, group project work, and presentations, and, to a large extent, the final exam. In some courses, assessment is based on a theoretical exam and a practical aspect of the class, specifically a group or individual project. Mid-terms are not given. Grades are given on a 100-point scale and converted to the U.S. grading scale.

Students must check with their professors to find out exam and other due dates. Under no circumstances will CIEE alter the deadline for a student who has made travel plans on the same day an exam is scheduled or an assignment is due.
