Mahatma Education Society’s Pillai Group of Institutions welcomed the group of twenty two management students pursuing the Trans-Global Executive MBA Program (T-GEMBA) from Saint Mary’s School of Economics and Business Administration, California, USA for a six day cross cultural business studies program at Dr. K. M. Vasudevan Pillai Campus, Panvel from the 17th to 22nd March, 2014. This year the T-GEMBA group has partnered with the Pillai Institute of Management Studies & Research and has undertaken 3 projects in Mumbai as a part of the SOSERVMAN (Social Service Management) Program viz. Balprafulta, Creative Handicrafts and Mahatma Night Degree College.
Five of these students made a study of operational issues, financing issues, academic and industry partnerships and strategic issues affecting MNDC. During this visit the US students were given a tour of some slum areas where they interacted with the families living there. Subsequent to their study, the US students will provide a free of cost recommendatory Project report and presentation on the specific areas investigated.
