Learning to Live in India

Course Overview

Indian culture has many dimensions and is shaped by many elements: its rich history, religious diversity, foreign rule influences and population size. India has been on a steady path of economic growth for the last several years due to its technology boom and the entry of many foreign companies interested in offshore outsourcing in India. It is important to understand the Indian mindset in order to successfully live and work in India.

Many foreign companies “setting up shop” in India will require their personnel who are being posted here in India to understand and adapt to the Indian culture. Although an international assignment is exciting, it can also be a challenging one. It will be necessary to adapt relatively quickly to a new set of cultural rules, different social attitudes, varied communication styles and differing views about time management. Failure to understand a culture’s norms may lead to misunderstanding and frustration while trying to adapt to a new country.
