My Business Study Tour Experience

After one and a half year of studying PGDM at FIIB, participating in various college activities, working on Live Projects and doing Internships, finally the day that I had been waiting for arrived, the Business Study Tour with my batch mates to Dubai in UAE. It was a 5 days trip that combined both fun and learning elements. As a student of International Business School with an aspiration of becoming a global business leader, I was lucky to get this once in a lifetime opportunity from FIIB to visit Dubai, which is known as one of the biggest business hubs in the world. Global learning opportunities are rare to come by, this was one of the important criterions for me choosing FIIB for my PGDM.

Global Immersion Program

After reaching Dubai, I was pretty excited and curious about what the city has to offer to me. The Day 1 started with fun and enjoyment as I went for a Desert Safari ride with our group. It was one adventurous ride and I loved it as the car drivers showed stunts while driving and I was impressed with the teamwork and coordination showed by them. After this, it was amazing to watch some fire stunts performed by the local artists and dancers.

Day 2 started with a half day Dubai city tour, where we were explained the history of the city, along with important tourists attraction points, big projects like the al Nakheel, recently completed or under construction, business, and trading centers. Then in the evening, I went for Dhow Dinner Cruise which looked lovely at night in the water. A magic show was arranged by the boat manager for us. I loved the food with music and enjoyed the entire experience with my friends.

Day 3 was more of a serious day, where I went for an industrial visit to Hansa Green Technology factory in Ajman, UAE. Ajman city is completely an industrial belt and declared as free zone area by the Government for new businesses to setup. After reaching Hansa Green Technology factory, one of the factory employees made us understand the entire LED production process, how they are helping the government in street lighting issues, how the factory workers do their job, how the product testing is done by machines and how they are finally sold to end users. They do all the production and selling of LED lights without affecting the environment. He also showed the certifications the companies has received and told us the role and importance of them.  Then in evening we again had a small city tour in a bus. This time we visited and explored both Old Dubai and New Dubai. The tour operator also showed us a huge Golden Frame under construction, where one side there is Old Dubai and another side the New Dubai. The tour operator, being an employee of Al Nakheel, said that they take up all these new big projects in Dubai to attract more tourists every year and generate revenues through tourism.

On Day 4, I went for a university visit in the 1st half of the day. It was Skyline University College, Sharjah. It’s a huge campus and culturally diversity, where students from 202 nationalities study. The Director of the university briefed us about the college. He talked about UAE and Dubai economy. He also discussed the careers and business opportunities in UAE. Then one of the faculty members, taught me about Multi-Cultural Communication, it’s importance and challenges. Finally, I meet the Placement Head of the university. He discussed making a career in UAE, companies hiring MBA graduates, what is the work profile, skills required for employment, how Skyline University College students are trained to handle the upcoming business challenges. I also got an opportunity to talk to Skyline students. The students were energetic and behaved like leaders and are ready for tackle real business challenges. After this, I went for a 2nd industrial visit at Black Tulip Flowers LLC, Dubai. The company mainly deals with supplying premium quality flowers and plants to both B2B and B2C segment in UAE. They are the market leaders in UAE(60%)approx and have both wholesale and retail stores in UAE and abroad to meet the growing demand for their products. One of the employees made us visit the entire flowers and plants factory. He explained the entire production to distribution of flowers and plants by the company. He also gave a formal presentation and talked about their company, their success story, their strengths and challenges. In the evening, I went to Meena Market for shopping and explored different products and their prices and compared them to similar products available in India. I also went to Dubai Mall, saw the beautiful Burj Khalifa and enjoyed the lovely Fountain show.

All good things must come to an end, and it was the 5th Day in Dubai. I packed my bag to finally return to India. The sweet memories and learnings I have experienced in Dubai, will cherish them for lifetime. My overall business study tour experience was great and big thanks to FIIB, for giving me the excellent opportunity to correlate the business concepts I learned in the classroom to the International Business environment. I got to know the application of business models, frameworks and knowledge base I have been exposed during my PGDM program till date. I got insights into the operations, marketing, regulatory compliances of different companies in Dubai. I also developed an intercultural understanding and communications skills needed in UAE. This trip helped me see a different part of the world, meet new people and helped me know how businesses are managed in a country like UAE.
