Warwick Business School is strengthening its ties with India by fostering student exchange programmes and creating MBA scholarships for Indian students.

India’s economy is one of the largest in the world. It has the tenth-largest GDP and is the third largest economy by purchasing power parity (PPP). Thanks to its size and population, it's also one of the largest importers and exporters in the world.

The massive scale of opportunities it presents is attractive to investors and business schools like Warwick recognize the need to give students the chance to understand the business culture through knowledge exchange with peers.

Warwick Business School MBA students recently returned from a six-day exchange visit to the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) where the Vice-Chancellor and President of the University of Warwick Professor Nigel Thrift made the announcement that there would be special scholarships for Indian students who want to study on any of the school's taught masters programmes.

The visit to IIM-A is one of the international travel opportunities open to students on the Warwick MBA. IIM-A is a prestigious business school with around 800 full time students and 1500 executives enrolled in courses every year, and around 20,000 alumni across the globe.

Professor Thrift announced that the university has put together 16 scholarships for Indian students, including three at Warwick Business School. These scholarships are in addition to the £700,000 already pledged on the Chancellor’s Scholarships for postgraduate students.

One of the scholarships will be a full-tuition scholarship for the Warwick MBA programme, and two will be full-tuition scholarships for one of WBS’s specialist Masters programmes.

Furthermore, the International Office will also dedicate a scholarship to an Indian student, consisting of a tuition fee waiver, for any taught Masters programme at the university.

The six-day exchange trip to India that Warwick MBA students participated in was a chance to discover the specific business needs of India and build invaluable business contacts.

The visiting cohort of 30 represented 11 countries from all corners of the world, including Australia, Switzerland, USA, Wales, Saudi Arabia, Austria, South Africa, Norway, and Nepal.

Students attended lectures and seminars on setting up a business in India, the Indian supply chain and financial system and how to market and understand the Indian consumer. They also found out the crucial cultural differences in managing and developing Indian workers.

The MBAs visited companies in Ahmedabad, including Tata’s Nano factory, where the cheapest car in the world is built, a textile firm, fabric dealer Arvind Mills and GVK EMRI - a research centre for emergency services management.

One particular student even managed to squeeze in a meeting for his own private business venture!

Frenchman Toni Saraiva, a project manager for EISC Ltd said that one of the most interesting aspects of the trip was being on campus with Indian MBAs and networking with them.

"These informal encounters at dinner and around the campus helped build bridges to India that are priceless. I was also able to have a couple of hours to organise my own company visits, one to a local company which I could develop some business with, possibly taking on some of the products for the European market", said Toni.

"The visits gave us contrasting views from different industries that fitted in with the contrasting country India is; from high-level, high-tech organisations such as the emergency management services to a labour intensive sector such as textile", said Toni.

"The emergency services company was especially impressive and companies in Europe could probably learn from the systems put in place there.

“It is a very busy, intensive week but I would recommend anybody doing the Warwick MBA to take part in one of the internationally delivered electives. Being immersed for a week in a different working environment and culture, with different approaches to education is very useful to keep future managers sensitive to the global economy and its slight differences.”

IIM-A students also spent the week at Warwick's campus learning about the UK business environment.

Warwick Business School accepts applications on a rolling basis but you should ideally apply early especially if you want a chance at one of these scholarships.

BSc Management with Marketing

I loved Warwick business school. The staff is supportive, my academic tutor was key in my development throughout the 3 years and you have to meet with her/him every term. Most professors are helpful and would happily offer support if needed. You also have office hours and can contact professors by email and through the forum. In general, WBS instills in you the willingness to learn and the resilience needed for you for whatever career you choose. Very international community which broadens your horizon and makes you more open minded and self aware. You will most certainly make friends and memories for life. I recommend that you get outside of your comfort zone and try new activities with your friends! WBS also has a great reputation and offers careers opportunities, and careers support throughout the degree. There is the opportunity to do a year abroad to further develop on a personal level. I wasn’t able to do this due to Covid but I would have loved to do it during normal circumstances! Would definitely recommend this. Although Warwick is not a city university, the campus vibe has a lot of advantages, especially at an undergraduate level. You are always around familiar faces, and in a student environment. Moreover, Birmingham is only 20 mins away from Leamington spa and London is only one hour away! Perfect for a day trip or a weekend getaway!

Life at Warwick Business School

Pursuing my master's degree at WBS has been a game-changer in my life. With high-quality education, interaction with students from across the world, amazing campus life and much more. I was able to learn about business, finance, project management and strategy all in one course: MSc in Management at WBS. Besides the top-notch education from the best professors, I also enjoyed being a part of fun societies and participating in fun activities such as scavenger hunts and so much more. The school also organises many company visits and interactions which help students get a head start at finding a job. As my course came to an end, I also have a good full-time job placement in my hands. Overall, my experience at WBS was a great one.

The Warwick Business School was like a dream come to life for me. The University ranking speaks for itself, from top-tier facilities to some of the best professors I had to honour to study with I fell in love with my course. Interactions with people from all over the world gave me a newfound confidence in myself. Career prospects after graduating are endless due to the contacts of the universities and the success rate for previous students, it does open a lot of doors for students in various career fields. The campus life is quite good as well with a lot of student groups and clubs, and extra circular activities to engage students at all times. Loved my experience.

A good business school

It is a very cutting-edge, career-oriented business school, all courses are very practical, and the college does a very good job of career service. From the hardware and facilities to the staff, the student experience is at the core of the school and student satisfaction is taken very seriously. I understand that many universities in the UK are relatively traditional and can occasionally be rigid in terms of rules and regulations, and although WBS has a relatively short history, this makes it more innovative and dynamic, which is essential for a business school. The downside is that because it is on the outskirts of Coventry, it is a long bus ride to the city centre, not to mention the difference in experience from a big city like London.

Campus Life

One thing that stood out for me was the campus life, you felt like part of a community. The social aspects of the student union and on-campus accommodation meant you can easily get together and enjoy with friends. Additionally, I felt the course provided a variety of subjects allowing me to enhance my knowledge, from Marketing to Law and Finance. Overall I would most definitely recommend this university to friends and family.

Warwick business school

Warwick business school is one of the best universities around the globe with a solid base of economic and business studies. Moreover, students get a chance to study in a diverse and warm environment with professional stuff which tries to provide the best opportunities for career development. One of the memorable features of the university are great events which sometimes take a place in one of the landmarks of the London city, the Shard building.
