ISM Dortmund Campus Tour, City Tour and Company Visit

There’s a big world beyond the IILM campus, and a student can experience it through the golden opportunity given by IILM Undergraduate Business School as Global Study Program. In order to be a responsible leader in today’s time students need to have first-hand experience of cultures, organizations, and business practices around the world. In order to cater to this requirement IILM’s global offerings encompass a mandatory 3 week global study program.

This program was organized for our stage 2 students of 2016 – 19 batches. Based on the preferences, students were taken to International School of Management, at Dortmund, Germany. The entire program was sponsored by IILM and the partner school except that the students had to bear extra expenditures like food, travelling etc.

On the 6th of August 2017, 35 students collectively from both Lodhi Road and Gurgaon campus boarded flight for Dortmund, Germany along with two faculty members. While the travel itself, the students were handed over the ISD sim cards so that they can make calls to their parents and inform them about their safe arrival at Dortmund. In addition with this the students were also explained about the rules and regulations to be followed at the hostel. Each and every student was provided on the same day with a train/bus card to travel nearby location for free of cost. The students were also provided with a unique identity card in order to seek entry into International School of Management, Hamburg, Germany.

This three weeks program was a blend of two modules, industry visits and cultural immersions. A highlight of this interesting curriculum is here.

Google Headquarter Visit in Toronto, Canada

On August 16, the IILM UBS Batch 3 of BBA in Entrepreneurship (2016-19) traveled to the world’s second most business-competitive global city, the home of the Toronto Maple Leaves, and tourist attraction CN Tower. Students spent the weekend visiting some of the most reputable companies in the world and participating in a community service project. The evening began with an introduction to Google’s mission and values, and a tour of Google Toronto’s new offices. Google’s two key workplace values are healthy lifestyles and environmental friendliness, said a Google representative, which was evident in the design of the office: from the polished concrete floors to the inexpensive timber stand walling to the galvanized steel wall frames, and reclaimed seats from the old Montreal Forum.

Meeting rooms were named after cities and parks in Eastern and Western Canada, with a shower room (for employees needing to shower after bicycling to work) named “Niagara Falls.” Google has also partnered with Bullfrog for its energy needs in order to create a net zero carbon footprints, the girls were told.

The trip brought together a diverse group of individuals, both within the Seneca College and at the companies they visited. Students spoke with knowledgeable professionals from these global businesses, toured the facilities, and learned firsthand it’s like to work for a global professional services firm. Later the students were given a chance to ask numerous questions regarding “How Digital Marketing can help their Business grow”. A pizza supper and a presentation on Google’s products concluded the evening.

Learning Outcome: The students were able to relate the concepts learnt in the classroom. They learnt about the various strategies adopted by Google. This visit was a part of the module Strategic Management. A pre and post briefing reinforced the concepts delivered.

Feedback: Well appreciated by the students.

A Visit to Toyota manufacturing plant in Cambridge (Canada) to Witness Kaizen at Work

IILM BBA in Entrepreneurship (2016-19) Batch 3 Students visited Toyota manufacturing plant in Cambridge (Canada) on 17th of August 2017 as a part of 3 weeks’ Global Study Program. The group to this unmemorable company visit consisted of IILM BBA students along with me. This factory tour of Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada is unmemorable as it gave us an opportunity to witness Kaizen at work, a concept constantly popping up in the field of business management.

Nothing can be more fascinating and intriguing than seeing how things we use are made! This company visit and the guided tour takes you into the heart of the Toyota Plant. And you are immediately transported to a world of efficiency where the Team Toyota and robots build the cars. Sorry that there are no photos, as electronic devices are not permitted on the tour.

The leading reason tourists access the Cambridge visitor & information centre isn’t to tour the city’s historic downtowns or play in its famous parks – it’s to visit Toyota and see where hundreds of thousands of cars are made.

The Toyota plant has practiced Kaizen “change for the better” since the plant came into existence. Known for rapid, continuous, improvement, Kaizen has been practiced in many locations across the globe. We find so many case studies on it in the field of management studies. The plant also employs “in time” assembly as nothing is built unless it has been ordered. As a result, no spare vehicles sitting around for speculative selling.

We also witnessed how the production process at Toyota involves zero wastage where the scrap in minimized and again utilized in the process.

It was an amazing experience for the whole group of IILM BBA students to witness the robots populate the welding lines. We even saw the famous Godzilla robot(s) that pick up assemblies and move them from one level of the factory to an upper level.

All in all, it was an amazing and edifying company visit. The IILM UBS Global Study Program was conceived to benefit the budding entrepreneurs and managers to immerse themselves in another culture as well as experience the challenges and opportunities facing organizations around the globe. During such tours as the visit to the Toyota manufacturing plant in Cambridge, students meet leading executives and gain first-hand experience of concepts and practices like Kaizen. Such tours also extend global awareness and enhance the international perspective of IILM BBA students.

A visit to the Bosch World Wide Headquarters building in Stuttgart The company visit began with a thorough tour of the Bosch World Wide Headquarters building in Stuttgart, Germany. Very much like the gigantic Bosch corporate entity and identity itself, it was hard to judge how big the place was – with its office tower just disappearing into the low clouds behind the German countryside.

Once inside, our IILM BBA group got a better idea of the scope of things. The Bosch Group of companies has well over 350 subsidiaries and regional companies in 60+ countries and gives employment to nearly 300,000 people. Power tools make up 16% of Bosch business, while the automotive industry is responsible for 60% of its business. Appliances and countless industrial and energy related products make up the rest.

During our tour of some of the best corporate research and advanced engineering labs including that of Bosch, we were exposed to some of the latest developments in “smart” materials, photovoltaics, and Lithium-ion battery technologies. We can’t be more specific than that, but suffice it to claim that things move pretty fast at Bosch – the Bosch corporate research department files an average of 12 patents a day.

To conclude, the trip to the Bosch World Wide Headquarters building in Stuttgart didn’t disappoint the group! It was amazing to visit and get the first-hand experience of the business and functioning of this corporate giant.
