Managing Context: The Worldly Mindset
The core of this module focuses on the political, social and economic dimensions of developing as well as developed countries. It is built on the assumption that being exposed to other people’s worlds brings insight into one’s own, and this helps make us worldly, wiser and better leaders.
The experience comes alive through visits to different locations that illustrate India’s diversity, from a food market to a software campus, separated by just a few kilometers yet appearing to be centuries apart.
In this East-meets-West context, there is a deep examination of culture and the developing economy, with particular attention on the cultural clash that occurs when multinationals operate in developing countries, shedding light on the challenges participants will face as worldly managers.
