India Global Immersion Program

Global Immersion Program (GIP) classes bridge classroom lessons and business practices in another country. These 3 credit classes meet for half a term in New York prior to a one week visit to the country of focus. During the immersion week, students will meet with business executives and government officials while working on team projects. Upon return from the travel portion of the class, students will have at least one wrap up meeting at Columbia Business School. The 2013-2014 Global Immersion Program fee for seven day classes is $1800 and provides students with double occupancy lodging, ground transportation and some meals; longer programs, such as the Patagonia program, may have an increased fee. It does not cover round trip international airfare.

Attendance both in New York and in-country and regular participation are a crucial part of the learning experience and as such, attendance is mandatory. Students who miss the first class meeting may be removed from the course, and will not have their program fee refunded to them. No program fee refunds will be given after the add/drop period has closed. Only current, full-time Columbia Business School students are allowed to sign up (no significant others).

Students bid for spots on GIP classes as they would for any other class.  To learn more about the Program, please contact the Chazen Institute. Click here to learn how Global Immersion Program classes differ from Chazen International Study Tours.
