LEARNING ABOUT OUTSOURCING FIRSTHAND:
STUDENTS VISIT MULTINATIONALS AND INDIAN IT FIRMS

Nine Pace students and eight faculty and staff members traveled to India during the winter break to witness first-hand how outsourcing has taken root in India and is propelling spectacular economic growth. The trip, led by Narayan Murthy, PhD, and Daniel Farkas, PhD, was the travel component of their course on Managing Technology Outsourcing.

The group visited a number of multinational corporations including AOL, Intel, and IBM as well as several Indian companies such as Infosys and Mindtree Consulting. In addition, they toured the SRI Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering, a well-respected engineering school in the city of Mysore. Despite their busy schedule, they also found time to attend a traditional Indian wedding, ride an auto-rickshaw, eat authentic Indian cuisine, do a substantial amount of shopping and take in some sights including the magnificent Taj Mahal.
