Learning Trails: MET Industrial Visit
MET MMS and eMBA students of the 2015 batch from Mumbai visited the district of Nasik, Maharashtra for a two day industrial visit on 11th March, 2014. At first they toured the Nasik campus where they received a warm welcome from Mrs. Shefali Bhujbal. Then began the seamless journey for these future managers into the world of production.
Students were taken to Tyssenkrupp (Ruth Erde), the worldwide leading manufacturer of slewing bearings, where they were shown the entire process of manufacturing. They then proceeded to Eaton India, a company which manufactures valves used in engines of vehicles and brakes of trains. Students were amazed to see the procedure in which raw iron is converted into valves. On the second day, students visited Sula wines, India’s largest wine maker. They were introduced to wine making practices - from the vineyards to the final packing and dispatch and learnt how to hold the glass, swirl, smell and taste different types of wines. After this thrilling experience, the students headed to the factory of the world famous biscuit maker, Parle G. They were taken through the progressive journey of the brand right from its inception to being the most trusted selling brand today.
The concrete efforts of the MET management aims to ensure that their students receive the best practical exposure of what they study in theory. Students returned to Mumbai – happy and informed with the rich and practical hands on experience they received. One of the best experiences in an MBA programme is indeed the Industrial visit.
