The live case studies at Tata Motor Company and Hindustan Lever Ltd. gave us a good insight into things. There is amazing diversity, complexity, scale, contrast and tremendous challenges and opportunities both for Indian entrepreneurs and multinational firms," said Wharton Professor and Founder of the Fellows programme, Jerry Wind.
Over the last couple of days the Wharton Fellows have interacted with illustrious personalities like Gurcharan Das, noted columnist and former CEO of Procter & Gamble, Harsh Goenka of RPG Enterprises, Santrup Mishra of the Aditya Birla Group, K V Kamath of ICICI Bank, S Ramadorai of Tata Consultancy Services, Prabhu Chawla of the India Today Group, Dr Meena Kaushik, Quantum Market Research and others giving the Wharton Fellows an overview of India's cultural, social and political environment.

This could actually have taken me months of close study."
