IRC- Transcending Boundaries : The International Relations Committee is dedicated to managing the international face of XIMB. It works in tandem with the Student Exchange Offices of various Universities across the globe, fostering new tie ups and working towards exploring further areas of collaboration with existing and prospective partners.
From hosting exchange students from all around the world, to encouraging our students to quench their penchant for management education outside of XIMB, IRC has been consistent in its efforts of widening the scope of learning at XIMB. The main objective of the committee is to facilitate the exchange process for outgoing students in their 5th term and to manage the hospitality and mentorship of the incoming students.
The International Relations Committee maintains partnerships with various universities around the world, ensuring that both inbound and outbound exchange students find the application process easy to comprehend and that their subsequent stay in the new country is as smooth as possible.
The committee is a student driven initiative and is the primary point of contact for students interested to spend a part of their academic curriculum on foreign shores. It strives to provide a global exposure to the management students by encouraging a cross functional, cross situational and cross cultural learning through student exchange program.
