The inter- and cross-disciplinary courses will help you connect the dots from various disciplines and our focus on cultural immersion in community will enhance your residential learning experience.
Globalization is a fact of life in this fast-changing post-modern world with the increasing interconnectedness of different markets, peoples, religions, and cultures that move beyond national boundaries, aided by technological innovations. India, China and Vietnam showcase such experiences and impacts of globalization both as its active contributors and at times reluctant participants.
