The Finance Study Program to India will be offered in 2013 from 7 - 20 November for the unit MPT753. The program will commence at the Melbourne Burwood Campus on Thursday 7 November for two days of intensive teaching and preparation before travelling to India to visit the financial districts of Mumbai and New Delhi.
The study program includes
Lectures, cultural visits and leadership events while in India. The objective of the program is to provide students with the opportunity to learn finance hands-on, with real projects and to develop their individual leadership skills.
In India, the group will participate in on-site visits to investment companies including:
There are visits to high growth small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) including Liqvid, QAI, One97Communications and high growth startups like iXigo and Zomato. The purpose of the visits is to meet with business managers who can explain the business, the investment opportunity and the insights that students can use when estimating future cash flow. Students in pairs will choose the project that they wish to work on and then communicate with the business manager to develop the project.
This innovative program of study provides students with a valuable 'networking' opportunity to work with business managers on real investment opportunities, to develop commercially and environmentally viable solutions and to participate in events that will contribute to the development of individual leadership skills.
