Course Description

Who do we call migrants? It may be you or me, moving from one place to another to improve our lives. It can be inter country, intra country or even rural to urban. Statistically, the maximum number of human migrations across the world happened in the last decade—and it is increasing every day.

Migrants and locals are two sides of a coin—a journey of collaborative adaptation necessary from both ends. We all struggle during this process from fear of uncertainty, culture shock, change in perception, value system and style of communication. As human beings are the heart and soul of any business, understanding different perspectives and behaviour are crucial in reaping the optimum outcome. Migration—wherever it happens, it always brings socio economic growth and in today’s hyper connected mobile world is truly a relevant topic.
