The essence of the adventure trip is to experience the thrill and power of team spirit. This fun trip deepens the belief in team power. Students experience a rush of adrenalin and the two and half days can be defined as fun and frolic. The trip tests a student's physical, mental, strategy building, resource/energy management and team building skills. This program helps one understand his/her limits and then go way past them. The philosophy of stretching beyond the limit is what XLRI preaches. XLRI's methodology of teaching, which is about reinventing oneself continuously, is put to practice in this trip.
The intent of this program is to train students to understand the problems of rural India and address them in a better way, it is mandatory for students to spend a few days in the rural parts of India.
Under the Village Exposure Program, students of the GMP have to identify the problems of the people of a particular village and then suggest solutions. Students will then have to design business modules. The rural exposure Program will help the future managers to understand the needs of the local people and provide solutions to their problems.
