Amrita School of Business, Coimbatore (ASBC), students spent time in rural communities as part of their Live-in-Labs® course curricula. The students spent time in Nani Borvai, an Amrita SeRVe village in Gujarat.
The objective of the visit was to get an exposure to the real life problems of the people living in our villages and to trigger a desire to make a personal contribution towards their welfare. Applying business education to devise a planned intervention will provide us with a real time experience of the possible implementation issues and this was great learning experience.
