UPES provides global exposure to its students by sending them to international universities for four weeks. Global exposure involves experiential and extensive learning, where the student learns about new cultures and carefully understands the work dynamics. Global exposure also emphasizes leadership development, digital transformation, and creative and analytical thinking.
GIP has two main streams to select from: Global Leadership and the other is Design and Innovation. Any student enrolled in the current year can apply for the program. Final selections and approval of applications are decided by the Department of International Affairs, UPES, and the partner universities. Destinations for the program include London, Berlin, Vancouver and Singapore.
