India Program update

Happy New Year and Greetings from Hubli India. We have 60 students from UML, India, China and Japan going through our 2-week accelerated Global Entrepreneurship and Innovation program. On our first day, the Vice Chancellor of the KLE Technological University, Dr. Shetter, welcomed students.


This is our eighth session between US and India and now we have over 420 students participating in these programs! Numbers are growing! UML students are posting blogs of their experiences. Please do take a look at https://blogs.uml.edu/india-winter-2017/.


On Monday January 2, students visited the largest kitchen feeding 200,000 school children around Hubli! Take a look at this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aziKmC7ZLpM


Monday afternoon Desh Deshpande and his wife Jaishree came to our class and had a very informative dialog with students. They enjoyed the conversation immensely. Desh has to all of our programs in Hubli and has taken a very active interest. His wife asked students about their experiences and projects they are working. Students were very appreciative of their visit to the class.


We have landed!

After a long journey, over 17 hours, from Boston to Bangalore, we arrived at Bangalore  Can’t wait to  get to Hubli and meet all our classmates!

Then we had to take a bus to Hubli, about 8 hours! Our friends from China joined us in this long ride.
