In the fifth week of the Global Institute for Management and Leadership program, Hiram College welcomed a second group of students from India. These undergraduate and graduate students come from Manav Rachna International University and Chitkara University, and they began a month-long program in IT, operations management, communication technology and management training.
To kick off the program, Hiram College President Thomas Chema and Paul Bowers, Dean of Professional and Graduate Studies, welcomed these university students to campus with a picnic.
In addition to the coursework these students will complete, they will go on educational trips to Northeast Ohio institutions such as: Cleveland State University, the Youngstown Incubator, Youngstown State University, the Great Lakes Science Center and numerous other locations.
Over the course of the summer, more than 100 students from private Indian universities will participate in this partnership program at Hiram College.
“Hiram College is fortunate to have these universities on campus, with a goal of robust educational instruction and interesting and varied cultural instruction,” Bowers said.
