MBA student Sri Subhakar Ganapuram has been accepted to the summer 2023 Iacocca Global Village program at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Sri joins fellow students and young professionals from around the globe in an intensive 5-week residency program of workshops, design challenges and service-learning projects that is designed to develop participants’ interdisciplinary teamwork and entrepreneurship skills. Several workshops combine classroom instruction with field outings to nearby places of historical or cultural interest.
Roughly 65-75 candidates from 35-45 countries are accepted to the Global Village program each year. In selecting candidates for admission, the Institute looks for individuals who combine academic excellence with a record of professional accomplishments and leadership experience.
Sri says of his experience: “The Iacocca Global Village Program is renowned for emphasizing experiential learning and cultural immersion. It gave me the chance to broaden my perspective on the world, improve my intercultural competence, and comprehend global challenges better.”
Before joining Hellenic American University in 2021, Sri worked for Lucent E-Commerce as a senior product development manager. Now in his final semester of his MBA program, Sri has been a highly engaged member of the student community and serves as both vice-president of the Hellenic American University Entrepreneurship Club and vice-president of the Student Body Council for the Nashua campus.
