  Carleton University Student Exchange Program 2018
  This year’s program was initiated by Carleton University, 15 students from a varied background on a 6-day exchange were sent to Jai Hind College, Mumbai. Their visit included an exchange of academics, cultural, historical, rural aspects and entrepreneurship culture of India. The academics lecture series covered history, philosophy, dance, yoga, Entrepreneurship, Indian Economy and Rural Marketing. To cover the historical background of the city they visited the Kanheri Caves, the Museum, further took a heritage walk in south Mumbai. The students visited a Tribal Village in the heart of the city- Goregoan where they not only interacted with the locals there but also were welcomed by a cultural program organized by the tribal kids. The students were amused with the start up culture they observed in the city while visiting EGK foods at Taloja- a start up by an alumni of Jai Hind, which sells fried onions. They also visited the Bombay Stock Exchange and learnt the basics of the Indian Financial Markets. An exciting Mumbai local train ride to Bandra followed by local church, temple and dargah visits marked the end of their program at Jai Hind College.

  Jai Hind College conducted the India Study Program 2017 especially for the students visiting from Carleton University under the auspices of the Canada-India Excellence Centre. The purpose of this 5 -day program between April 27th to May 2nd, 2017 was to enable the visiting students to acquire a perspective on the socio-cultural, religious and heritage aspects of India and to provide them with an idea about the current Indian economy and the financial institutions in Mumbai and India. The students were from varied background such as Business Management Studies, from Sciences and from International Relations streams. The program comprised of classroom sessions on topics such as Indian society and history, religion and culture, Indian Economy pre-and post-Globalization, Entrepreneurship Culture in India, Mobile Commerce in India, Psychological perspective on Happiness and resilience in India and the Media landscape in India. Visits to heritage sites, Museum, art gallery and other cultural spaces in the city as well as a special visit to Securities & Exchange Board of India was organized. These lectures were conducted by our internal faculty comprising Dr.Ruchi Chaturvedi, Dr. Rakhee Sharma, Dr. Hasina Sayed, Dr. Archana Mishra and Ms. Simmin Bawa, Ms. Sarita Jai Shankar & Dr. S Varalakshmi. The program was overall designed and coordinated by Dr. Archana Mishra with the support from BVoc faculty, Ms.Vedanti and the student volunteers from BVoc Travel & Tourism Management and BA classes.

The program was well received and rated excellent in the feedback from the students. We hope in future the two institutions would work collaboratively in the best interest of the students.
