New Delhi: Clove Dental recently had the opportunity to host a team of students from Harvard Business School in New Delhi for one week as part of a required first-year course at Harvard Business School called the FIELD Global Immersion. Clove Dental was one of 157 FIELD Global Partners spanning 13 countries around the world. Together these Global Partners combined to host more than 930 Harvard Business School students in all.
“We are pleased to be working with these intelligent minds who bring an international healthcare perspective both as consumers of dentistry and as business professionals. We feel certain that the students will gather insights that will benefit them and will give us a perspective to further improve our services for the benefit of our patients.” said Mr Amarinder Singh, Founder & CEO, Clove Dental
The FIELD Global Immersion is a course designed to strengthen and develop students’ global intelligence – their ability to manage and operate effectively across cultures and business contexts. Clove Dental executives had been working with the team remotely in the months leading up to their arrival in country. While here, the students pitched their ideas to the leadership team, conducted field research with consumers around New Delhi and presented their final recommendations to management. The purpose of this immersive experience is to provide students with the opportunity to do real fieldwork in an unfamiliar context.
Harvard is quick to acknowledge that this important learning experience would not be possible without the Global Partners.
“We are extremely grateful to Clove Dental and all the FIELD Global Partner organizations for all they do on behalf of our students,” said Professor Juan Alcacer, the faculty head of FIELD. “The students benefit immeasurably from this experience and we hope the partner organizations do as well.”
