Focus India is a flagship project within the bachelor degree program of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland. Organized by students for students in their final year, it allows them to apply and enhance the skills learned in school. Through the close collaboration with industrial partners, Focus India will be in its tenth consecutive successful year. For the past years this project has enriched numerous students with valuable skills. Not only the project team members have profited from this unique experience, also PR-team members as well as delegation members have broadened their horizons and have gone on to start remarkable careers or graduate programs after their graduation.
“There is no better way to obtain skills and competences, which will help you in your everyday business life than being part of Focus India. Furthermore, this project is a must have for establishing first class business contacts and will be the highlight in everyone’s curriculum vitae.”
“Coordinating the PR activities and concentrating on all the classes at the same time was definitely challenging. I remember we had many long nights, heated discussions and most leisure activities had to be put on hold for a semester. But every hour was worth it! I grew professionally and personally: I learned how to set priorities, keep calm in stressful situations and immersed myself in a foreign culture. We had the freedom to be creative, to experiment with new ideas and were entrusted with many responsibilities – for me, that was the most valuable learning experience. Thanks to Focus India I did not only get a first-hand insight into the economic and political situation of an uprising country, but I also connected with its people, traditions and unique character. Truly unforgettable!”
“During the on-site seminar the whole Focus India delegation had the unique chance to visit various types of multinational as well as local corporations from different industries and backgrounds. The possibility to get an in-depth insight into the Indian culture and the way of doing business in India was amazing and could not be more genuine and educational. Even though, the whole trip throughout India was tough and challenging at some points, I can truthfully recommend everyone to take the unique chance and sign up to actively participate in Focus India Business Program.”
