Featured corporate member: Immersion India®
CarringtonCrisp

This EMBA cohort dived into a case study of the Indian-based strategy, technology, and business consulting company Wipro, focusing on the application of lean management in the service industry. When the time came for their international trip, it came with a bonus: The students travelled to India and met with the Wipro team that was developing the process of lean management.

EMBAC corporate member Immersion India arranged the visit, as well as the students’ other academic and cultural experiences in India. The company offers academic experiential learning programs in urban and rural India, collaborating closely with faculty and program leaders to design experiences for maximum educational and cultural impact.

While Immersion India officially started in 2017, its founders had worked in the field of international education for more than a decade.

“We used to facilitate academic partnerships among institutions for students in India and students abroad, and through those partnerships we designed programs – they could be exchange programs, faculty-led programs, study-abroad programs – and we still do that,” says Vineeth Thomas, founder and managing partner.

“Through our history of working with universities, we also realized that students wanting to travel to India or universities wanting to send their students to India did not have a dedicated partner who could facilitate such trips.”

The founders formed Immersion India to fill that need, also noting an opportunity to raise the profile of India as a preferred destination for international education.

“We established Immersion India as a brand exclusively to cater to inbound short-term faculty-led programs,” says Thomas. Each program differs based on the interests and the goals of faculty and program leaders. “We basically try to understand the requirements of the faculty and university, and we design something that is tailor-based to their needs.”

Programs include both academic and cultural components. Students spend 75 percent of their time on the academic side, where they participate in lectures, seminars, workshops, company visits, and related experiences.

In addition to planning experiences in collaboration with faculty, Immersion India handles all onsite logistics, including accommodations, airport pick-up and drop-off, meals, transportation, and entry charges for places to visit, among other details, to help ensure the trip goes smoothly. “Services are covered end-to-end, with the only exclusions of international airfare, visas, and insurance costs.”

Immersion India researched and selected the 10 best-suited destinations for experiential learning programs in India. In the south, they include Karnataka, Pondicherry, Goa, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu, and in the north, Rajasthan, New Delhi, Mumbai, and Gujarat. The destination list also includes the North-East states. For information about the Immersion India destinations, explore its online brochure.

After pivoting to virtual learning programs during the pandemic, travel resumed, and now programs can choose virtual or onsite, or a combination.

As an international education destination, India continues to garner interest, and Immersion India is working hard to position India as an ideal destination for academic programs. “India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world,” says Thomas. “There should not be a reason why anybody should miss traveling to India.”

In 2021, Immersion India received a global award for its work to craft quality academic programs.

In recognition of its unique contributions to sustainable and responsible tourism, the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) chose Immersion India as the winner in the Quality Education Category of its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Global Startup Competition. Responsible for promoting sustainable, accessible, and inclusive tourism, the UNWTO sponsored the competition to encourage the global innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem to embrace sustainability. The competition attracted more than 10,000 participants from 138 countries, with Immersion India as the only organization from India to make the list of finalists.

Immersion India learned about EMBAC from a faculty member and attended the 2022 EMBAC Conference in Austin, Texas, the first in-person EMBAC Conference since 2019.  “As a first-timer, the members reached out to us,” says Thomas, who enjoyed meeting members from programs throughout the world. “They were very welcoming, and we felt very involved.”

For Thomas, the most rewarding part comes at the end of trips when students share their stories and experiences about how the trip transformed their understanding of India. “The most satisfying thing is changing the perceptions that many people have when they think about India. After they complete a trip to India, that perception is completely changed.”
