Similar to China, India is expected to have a major impact on the world’s economy and business culture in the coming years.
 
Some economists think India’s economy will grow faster than any nation’s on earth over the next 25 years, Stevens notes. India’s economy is expected to expand 8.5 percent this year, with a growth rate that could overtake China by 2013.
 
Which all makes it an excellent nation for Lipscomb’s future business professionals to learn about and interact with. College of Business international travel allows students to see the opportunities and challenges of doing business in another nation while developing a framework for understanding issues and opportunities related to international business in any geographic context.
 
So far this week, Stevens, Kendrick and Gray have met with Apollo Hospitals and the director of the Fore School of Management. See Steven's observations and interviews of Indian business leaders at lipscombinindia.blogspot.com.
