2019 Malaysia Immersion Program: SJIM students visit Putra Business School in Malaysia

The 2019 SJIM Malaysian Immersion Program to Kula Lumpur took place from August 11 th to 18 th , 2019. The program was jointly organized by SJIM, Putra Business School, and Talent Group Asia. Seventeen of our students and Dr. Venkateshraj (faculty member of Finance) participated in the program, which saw them take part in workshops at the Malaysian university and visit various locations in Malaysia.

Our students attended sessions at the Putra Business School that were especially tailored to give them insights into a Malaysian perspective on Entrepreneurship, Marketing and Blockchain. Visits to various sightseeing locations like the Batu Caves and the Genting Highlands Cable Car ride were also much appreciated. Our students returned from Malaysia with some pleasant memories, and richer in knowledge and cultural experience.

This immersion program is a part of the increasing international exposure that SJIM is trying to give its students. In addition to the Malaysian Immersion Program, SJIM also gives its students the opportunity to visit USA through its partnership with Seattle University as part of the SJIM USA Immersion Program.
