James Williams ’17
I think I speak for everyone when I say that one of the most fun parts of this trip has been getting to know classmates whom we would have otherwise not met.
Well, we had another great day today.
After a quick lunch:
we it made to Tata’s corporate headquarters where we met with the company’s chief ethics officer. Tata was founded in the late 19th century and has been a leading Indian conglomerate for sometime. The business does about $100 B USD in sales every year with 70% of sales coming from overseas. Our conversation ranged broadly from the challenges of executing in foreign environments to compensation philosophy but focused mainly developing a sustainable culture across Tata’s many different business units.
We spent sometime walking around Colaba Causeway after our meeting before heading to the ocean to check out marine drive.

Well – it is almost midnight and I have to be up at 7 for another exciting day.
Tata for now.
