A short post from Mohali

Greetings from Mohali! I have been at the Mohali campus of the Indian School of Business this week, meeting the faculty and researchers here and getting a start on my summer research.  I head to Bangalore tomorrow to begin interviews for my project on pharmaceutical quality, but have really enjoyed my time here in the north of India!

A view of the campus!

For those who don’t know, the Indian School of Business is affiliated with Wharton. Their main campus is in Hyderabad, but they also have a newer campus in Mohali, with four institutes:  the Max Institute of Healthcare Management, the Bharti Institute of Public Policy, the Munjal Global Manufacturing Institute, and the Punj Lloyd Institute of Physical Infrastructure Management. I spent this week in an office with the analysts from the Max and Bharti institutes and will be working with the Max Institute as an affiliated doctoral researcher, which I am really excited about.

Chandigarh is a union territory and city (similarly to Washington DC in the US) and was created from multiple villages after the partition of India and Pakistan to serve as the capital of both Punjab and Haryana (Punjab’s former capitol was Lahore). It is a really modern city, with an enormous mall where we heard country music playing last night. Even though it’s so far away, it felt like home…
