A brief on the IIMB-Johnson Collaborative Student Project Programme (CSPP)
As an initiative to create an opportunity for cross-cultural learning of business and management in USA and India in an environment that will nurture close relationships between the students of the Samuel Curtis Johnson School of Management at the Cornell University (Cornell), USA and Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB), the IIMB-Johnson Collaborative Student Project Programme (CSPP) is run.
This programme is different from the standard student exchange programme where IIMB students spend a full term of ten weeks as students in leading business schools outside India. The CSPP programme is a sequential two-way exchange where the IIMB students went to Cornell for one week (September 4-10, 2011) to engage in a variety of learning and integration activities. Cornell students are visiting IIMB during December 17-23, 2011 for a similar experience.
During the week that the students from Cornell are in Bangalore, they attend classroom sessions to gain an overview of doing business in India. In addition they also visit Indian companies and not-for-profit organizations and are exposed to cultural events too. The intent is to provide them a well-rounded exposure to the country and the business/socio-economic environment.
