International industrial visit to LONDON
Around 55 students including a few faculties of DY Patil Deemed to be University School of Management (DYPUSM) visited London on an educational cum industrial visit. During the visit, the students and faculties visited the University of Birmingham and also Oxford University. The staff of the universities explained the culture, history, and geography of the university. The staff also gave a brief overview of the admission process and the procedure, the pedagogy followed, etc. The visit to JCT —earthmoving equipment manufacturers— had to be abandoned because of the coronavirus epidemic.
The organization apologized for the inconvenience caused and said this was as per the government regulation. The students and the faculties also had a surprise visit from some of our alumni who also shared their views about the culture pedagogy followed etc in the UK universities. These alumni were extremely happy to meet the students and their faculties. One of them mentioned that they were proud of the firm grounding they had in DYPUSM. Personally met a few of my friends from IIT Kharagpur after almost 40 years. The students had a chance to observe the various culture and other aspects of the London sites. The students were extremely happy after visiting a few of the tourist spots like the Buckingham Palace – change of guard ceremony, Trafalgar Square Piccadilly Circle, Oxford Street, London eye, the river Thames cruise, etc. On arrival in Mumbai, all the students and faculties were subjected to the 100% Covind 19 test. All the students returned safe and healthy. Some of the BBA – 3rd-year students and the MBA — 2nd year has expressed a desire that they would also like to join the international educational and industrial visit in the next years also. Do find attached a few photographs of the visit.
