International Study tour organised by iFEEL
As a part of International Engagement and providing International Exposure to students we are offering a fully sponsored International Study Tour to all students who have taken admission for 2014 - 2016 batch.
At iFEEL we believe it is important to have meaningful International exposure for students to have a global perspective, learn from the best practices internationally, identify business opportunities for entrepreneurial ventures and work towards developing a leading edge in their career or ventures in the future.

International exposure given to students at iFEEL include

The Institute believes that every student must undertake atleast one global study tour for. Preparation is key to budding managers and leaders. For one to understand and learn from a culture it is imperative to be able to talk the language spoken in that country. An international study tour can be a great eye opener for the students who will be in a work environment that will require them to interact and work with people from different nationalities.
