The Global Immersion Project (GIP) is a unique, creative and collaborative industry interface project initiative undertaken by the students of our Global MBA program, where we deploy our students with select reputed organisations in Singapore. Students are assigned a Business Challenge with the theme “Growth, Innovation and Strategy”, and at the end of their project, they provide strategic recommendations to address the business challenges under study. These projects help encourage the strategic decision-making capability amongst our students in real-life business scenarios.
Some of the companies our students worked with during the last year include Dell, Caterpillar, FreightKart, DHL E-commerce, Allergan, Tolaram Group – Indonesia, IDC, Isentia, IQVIA, and Graymatics. We thank our industry partners for giving our students this wonderful opportunity to learn and to grow in the global business environment. We look forward to many such fruitful industry-academia partnerships in future as well.
What did the companies have to say about our students? Let us take a look!

We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with the team, and I must say they did a fabulous job with ALP project deliverables.

We would definitely keep a lookout for such engagement opportunities which helps us to get good talent pool into our workforce.
