NDTV Worldwide hosts Harvard Business School students as global partner

NDTV Worldwide recently had the opportunity to host a team of students from Harvard Business School in New Delhi for one week as part of a required first-year course at Harvard Business School called the FIELD Global Immersion. NDTV Worldwide was one of 157 FIELD Global Partners spanning 14 countries around the world. Together these Global Partners combined to host more than 930 Harvard Business School students in all.

Shyatto Raha, Managing Director, NDTV Worldwide said, “We are pleased to be working with Harvard Business School to provide students with a real-world learning experience in India. Interacting with the students and getting their insights on the MyHealth project was extremely valuable in evaluating our product roadmap. Through interactions with customers, clients and industry experts, the students from Harvard Business School provided us valuable feedback and an insightful strategy for the MyHealth project.”

The FIELD Global Immersion is a course designed to strengthen and develop students’ global intelligence – their ability to manage and operate effectively across cultures and business contexts. NDTV Worldwide executives had been working with the team remotely in the months leading up to their visit to India. While in Delhi, the students pitched their ideas to the leadership team, conducted field research with consumers around Delhi, Gurgaon and presented their final recommendations to the management. The purpose of this immersive experience was to provide students with the opportunity to do real fieldwork on an innovation project, in an unfamiliar context.

Harvard is quick to acknowledge that this important learning experience would not be possible without the Global Partners.

“We are extremely grateful to NDTV Worldwide and all the FIELD Global Partner organizations for all they do on behalf of our students,” said Professor Juan Alcacer, the faculty head of FIELD. “The students benefit immeasurably from this experience and we hope the partner organizations do as well,” he added.
