The Alliance for Global Education
The Alliance programs in India introduce students to the most dynamic areas of Indian society through challenging coursework, experiential learning, and cultural immersion.
This program examines the diverse factors, internal and global, shaping India's development strategies and patterns. Students gain foundational knowledge of India’s past, present, and future development paradigms, economic growth, and social change. The program is based in Jaipur, a bustling hub of NGOs engaged in development projects, social justice initiatives, and political activism. Jaipur is the capital city of the state of Rajasthan, historically a princely and aristocratic state, and a center of Hindu, Jain, and Muslim traditions.
Bangalore's location is an ideal place from which to explore southern India. Within a few hours you can be wandering through the Maharaja’s Palace in Mysore, sunbathing on the beaches of Goa, visiting World Heritage Sites such as Hampi, and taking in one of the world's tallest waterfalls, Jog Falls. Cities such as Mumbai, home of Bollywood—the world’s largest film industry—are just a day's train ride away. Bangalore’s Electronic City Industrial Park has also become the world’s second largest producer of software. Bangalore is at the heart of the information technology and business outsourcing boom in South Asia and many multinational high-tech companies have offices here: Oracle is located right next door to Christ University.
