Students of GIMS have the opportunity to take part in a one or two-week long international immersion program. It includes visits to local companies and partner business schools, with time to visit local places of interest. The program represent important opportunities for professional growth, networking and team-working, as all experiences are shared and discussed with fellow students and met with management in the companies visited. It is innovatively designed to bring international exposure to the students with an academic feel. An international exposure of this kind not only expands the vision, but also augments the personality of management students.

During the Immersion Program candidates visit companies, discuss strategic issues with managers .It is a great opportunity for the students to gain international experience without heavy personal investment as the immersion program is fully facilitated by the institute.

It is as an eye-opening experience that gives them a new perspective on markets, management and culture; a perspective that cannot be gained from a traditional classroom experience. The students get the opportunity to meet with senior managers of medium to global sized businesses to discuss where business is going and how they have adapted to the challenges of a globally competitive environment is also invaluable.

Global experience is a required part of the PGDM curriculum today.
