Rural Immersion Program
Rural Immersion Program helps you understand rural markets, supply chains, rural consumers of India through field trips and personal interaction with the non-city dwellers. It helps you understand their problems, lifestyle, needs and their cultural & economic buying perspectives.
Awareness of this sector initiates you into designing products with a social benefit in mind and you also get to explore the potential of rural markets in India
The MIDAS expedition is aimed at making you to de-familiarise yourselves with the campus environment and approach the institute with a new perspective – perspective of an anthropologist, a photographer, a historian etc. With this you would gain a deeper appreciation for the complexity and richness of MIDAS which will enhance all aspects of your remaining time as students.
The aim is to hone your field observation skills to assist in future field work in more distant locales and learning through experience.
