"Travel. It leaves you speechless and then, turns you into a story teller."
Our international immersion programme was one such experience and much more. True to the word ‘immersion’, it gave us a chance to immerse ourselves in the culture and lifestyle of a country which was so different from us and yet so similar.

Our one week International Immersion Programme to Singapore was a perfect amalgamation of courses that were thought provoking and city tours which were mesmerizing. While the courses on emerging markets gave us a global perspective to look at things; the teachings of Sun Zi Bingfa (popularly known as ‘Art of War’) are likely to serve as a guiding light throughout our lives. A peek through the economic strategies of Singapore and one would realize that it is no wonder that they have done so well. Our host university, NTU, made sure that they get the best professors to teach us in the short time we had and make it worthwhile. But there are some lessons you just cannot learn within the confines of the classroom. You need to step out on the roads to see the sincerity with which the citizens of Singapore abide by their laws, the confidence they have while stepping out at night and the pride that they show in the development of their country.
The perfectly planned IIP also gave us ample amount of time to have our fair share of fun. The beautiful ambience of Marina Bay Sands, the thrill of ‘Transformers’ at Universal Studios, the tranquility of SEA Aquarium and the mysteries of Night Safari shall remain with us forever.
This Internal Immersion Programme to Singapore has not only gifted us a bunch of beautiful memories to savor but also a refreshing outlook towards life.
