The Global Opportunities & Threat Analysis (GOTA) Program brings awareness of how a truly global economy works and also offers a different perspective to the participants making them receptive to entrepreneurial learning. On these trips, the group manages to get tremendous International exposure and knowledge of Multinational corporations. There is something new to learn for everyone on this tour. The seminar sessions conducted by professionals from various companies falling under different industries/sectors is a blessing in disguise for the students, as they not only imbibe knowledge from these lectures but also get familiar with the foreign market, difference in work cultures and the way in which business is conducted overseas. The interesting subjects/topics that were discussed were extremely informative, right from the 6 guiding principles for being successful to the importance of networking to managerial decision-making, and last but not least the art of influencing others.

The series of appointments and lectures are of great utility in terms of opening up many new doors and insights into world class management practices, planning processes, cross-cultural nuances, and administrative insights with right mix of experiential and case learning.
