The appreciation of global business is inculcated through the curriculum, which has specific industry (banking, finance, health care etc.) and role (business development, logistics, finance, marketing etc.) related inputs that are obtained from the contents provided by leading industry association in the US such as American Management Association, IEEE, American Consultant Association etc."
