McDonough School of Business (MSB), Georgetown University (GU), Washington DC, USA.


The financial sector in India has been rapidly integrating with global processes and systems and is not immune to global challenges. While the Indian financial sector has made great strides such as in payment ecosystem, there is a growing realization on the importance of fostering interaction between academicians, bankers, stakeholders and regulators who have played a critical role in the recent financial crisis. These key players have provided essential policy assistance, adopted non-conventional policies and provided critical support during the period of financial instability. There is, thus, a felt need to interact with these experts that would help understand their approach, leverage on their insight and capitalize on the emerging opportunities that would be beneficial to the Indian economy at large and the financial system in particular.


The outbound program seeks to provide an opportunity to the participants to be amongst academicians and institutions that have been at the forefront of the global crisis that the financial markets have faced in recent years. The program also aims to provide participants an exposure to a different environment and culture, exposure to diversity and an opportunity to interact with policy makers, academicians and other stakeholders. Besides cultural immersion and problem-solving challenges in a foreign environment, it would also provide opportunities to the participants to interact and develop better lines of communication between themselves and with others. In addition to imbibing soft skills that this exposure would enable, besides banking and financial concepts, it would also provide richness in the inputs to be disseminated by world class academicians, supplemented by first-hand experience by practitioners at one place.
