About International Cell


SCMS NOIDA's International Cell believes in establishing, nurturing, and encouraging international exposure via education of high excellence and eminence. We want to build a higher education centre where academics from all over the world are understood, respected, and welcomed with open arms, and the cell seeks to put its vision into action by being actively involved and dedicated to connecting with foreign speakers.

The cell promotes international learning through collaborations across different global institutes. One such amazing opportunity presented to SCMS, NOIDA students was a Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) Course on Cross-Cultural Management with students from Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS). The COIL was a four-week certification course from April to June 2021 on a study of the contrasts and similarities in the consuming patterns of SCMS and AUAS students, followed by a joint project done by students from both universities.

Another Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) course for the academic session of 2022 was conducted by SCMS, NOIDA in collaboration with the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS). It was an initiative to bring together individuals of two different cultures on one platform to embrace the diversity and the uniqueness that each carries, and inculcate novel solutions to problems faced worldwide. The COIL was a nine-week course from April to June 2022 that aimed at conducting a study about the contrasts in the consumption habits of Indian and Dutch students.

The institute's BBA program enrols foreign students from all over the world, representing a diverse range of nationalities and cultures. SCMS NOIDA's international cell fosters international students through Buddy activities. Buddy meetings are arranged to foster a feeling of community among foreign students and to give a forum for them to discuss their scholastic and co-curricular activities. The cell guarantees that every foreign student can connect and communicate with students from all around the world through ongoing Buddy meetings, giving them a sense of belonging.

The Institute collaborates with universities in France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Australia, and the United States. DHBW in Germany, Berlin School of Economics and Law in Germany, Dauphine University in France, the University of British Columbia in Canada, Deakin University in Australia, Leeds Beckett University in the United Kingdom, London Business School, and IESEG School of Management in France are among the universities where institute students have attended summer schools or semester abroad programs.

The International Cell at SCMS, NOIDA launched the 2020 Global Talk Series on Management Practices in Industry 4.0 to help achieve the international goals. Management practices are the approaches and innovations used by managers to increase the effectiveness of work systems. We have successfully conducted more than 25 Global Talks series, bringing eminent international practitioners from various nations across the world to lecture and enlighten our students on many aspects of Industry 4.0.

COIL COURSE ON CROSS-CULTURAL MANAGEMENT 2022

In collaboration with Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS)

“Strength lies in differences, not similarities” - Stephen R Covey

With the nations recovering from COVID-19 and moving towards a new normal, it is crucial to strengthen the world through the diversity of its people. This was achieved by SCMS, NOIDA, and Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) by conducting a Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) course for the academic session 2022. It was an initiative to bring together individuals of two different cultures on one platform to embrace the diversity and uniqueness that each carries, and inculcate novel solutions to problems faced worldwide. The COIL was a nine-week course from April to June 2022 that aimed at conducting a study about the contrasts in the consumption habits of Indian and Dutch students. The students interacted with each other and deduced information to come up with products that can be exported and imported from or to the Netherlands.

The COIL course was successfully completed on June 27, 2022, with a valedictory session organized by the International Cell of SCMS, NOIDA to mark its completion. The session was commenced by Dr Nidhi Phutela, Officiating Director at SCMS NOIDA addressed the students by discussing the importance of cultural sensitization and mentioning how the course contributes to strengthening the relationship between two countries as well as helping knowledge pass across borders. Thereafter, Ms Brechtine Detmar, International Relations Manager, AUAS addressed the audience. She emphasized the importance of the COIL course, describing how new perspectives are developed through these activities among students of different nations without having physical interaction. Professor Chie Misumi from AUAS also elucidated how COIL helps in bringing unity to the world and provides exposure to young minds about the value system of people of different ethnicity, it also eliminates stereotyping and encourages people to look at an individual level rather than forming judgment at the community level. She also shared the experience of the students from AUAS about how the course helped them understand the deep- rooted diversity of India.

After the address from the academic faculty, the students of SCMS, NOIDA came forward to share their experiences regarding the COIL course. They demonstrated how the course helped them gain an understanding of Dutch culture and student life in Amsterdam and how despite the barrier of demographic, it allowed them to make friends and build a network in a different nation. The students thanked the faculty in charge at both universities for giving them the opportunity to explore, expand their knowledge and get the experience of another university. Furthermore, the session flowed with a video presentation by the international cell showcasing the international initiatives taken at SCMS NOIDA. The certificates for the COIL course were presented along with heartfelt congratulations to all students for their achievements.

The session was concluded with a vote of thanks by Dr Priya Grover, Faculty-in-charge- International cell and Area Chair-Marketing at SCMS NOIDA. She emphasized the importance of cross-cultural learning among students and how in time of the VUCA world this course will help them adapt rapidly. The COIL Course helped students expand their horizons and explore a new and dynamic environment that they will face in the future. It imparted them with knowledge of lifestyle, culture, tradition, values, and ethics that are different yet very similar to us. SCMS, NOIDA roped in the best possible opportunity for its students so that it can mold them into not only aware and competent citizens but also empathetic and responsible humans.

COIL COURSE ON CROSS-CULTURAL MANAGEMENT 2021

In collaboration with Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences

"We need diversity of thought in the world to face the new challenges." – Tim Berners Lee

To resonate with that saying, despite the unprecedented circumstances, SCMS NOIDA and Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) successfully completed the Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) Course on Cross-Cultural Management which arranged a platform to interact with students from the Netherlands. The COIL was a four-week course from April to June 2021 on a study about the differences and similarities in the consumption habits of the students from SCMS and AUAS. This included making groups of 4 students each: 2 from SCMS and 2 from the AUAS. They were asked to interact with each other and deduce information regarding the project and come up with products that can be exported/imported from/to the Netherlands. An introductory session for students of SCMS NOIDA on Cross-Cultural Management was taken by Prof. Chie Misumi, Senior Lecturer, Amsterdam School of International Business(AMSIB) who taught them about various cultural theories and concepts to be applied in the project in the COIL Course. This was followed by an ice-breaking session collaboratively taken by Dr. Nidhi Phutela, Deputy Director, SCMS NOIDA and Dr Priya Grover, Head-International Cell, SCMS NOIDA both for students of AMSIB and SCMS NOIDA.

Regular sessions of students of SCMS NOIDA were taken by faculty coordinators for this COIL Course, Dr Priya Grover and Dr Nidhi Phutela. The purpose was to guide them in understanding the COIL Course, interacting with the students of AMSIB and resolving challenges faced by them in the successful completion of the course. The students successfully submitted the project and completed the course on time.

A valedictory session was organised by the International Cell of SCMS NOIDA to mark the successful completion of the COIL Course. The valedictory session was successfully executed virtually on 30th June 2021, Wednesday. The Session started with a brief introduction to Symbiosis International University (SIU) and its motto Vasudhaiva Kuṭumbakam which means “the world is one family”. The anchor mentioned how SIU promotes cultural diversity and the inclusiveness of students from around the world. This was followed by a brief on SCMS NOIDA and its flagship Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program. The Head of International Cell, SCMS NOIDA, Dr. Priya Grover then addressed the audience and discussed the international programs and universities with which the institute collaborates. She congratulated the students on the successful completion of the COIL course. Further, the session went onwards with the address from the Honorable Director, SCMS NOIDA, Prof. K.P. Venugopala Rao who highlighted the importance of cross-cultural knowledge and understanding. He emphasized the successful completion of the learning process despite the virus limiting us to our homes only. He extended his regards to Prof. Chie Misumi and Ms Brechine Detmar from AUAS for collaborating with SCMS NOIDA. Then the students were addressed by Professor Chie Misumi from AUAS who stated that she is very much delighted to see the brilliant performance of the students. After Professor Misumi, Ms Brechtine Detmar from AUAS addressed the gathering where she said that this pandemic had been a very bad experience for the world but these types of collaborations act as a light in these times of darkness. After the address from Ms Detmar, the certificates were presented to everyone who successfully completed the course. Further, the session flowed with reflection from the students who shared their experiences and highlighted their learnings from the COIL Course. They said it was an astounding opportunity to have a chance to mix with people from the other part of the globe, know their lifestyles, acknowledge the similarities, and embrace the differences.

The session was then finally concluded with a vote of thanks from Deputy Director, SCMS NOIDA, Dr Nidhi Phutela who advocated the importance of exchange programs between students from different parts of the world and how it adds value to the student's perspective. To impart knowledge about the culture, tradition, values, language, and lifestyle of people living in the other part of the globe, SCMS NOIDA roped in the best possible opportunity for their students during these hard times.

Going for the semester exchange program gave me a wide variety of experiences and emotions which I wouldn't have experienced otherwise, all thanks to SCMS NOIDA. ”

A fruitful webinar was organized by the International Cell of SCMS, NOIDA on the topic “Neuromarketing and Business Applications” under the successfully running initiative of the Global Talk Series on May 18th, 2022. The respected speaker for this event was Prof. Vincenzo Russo, who is the Founder and Director of the Center of Research of Neuromarketing at IULM University and Associate Professor of Consumer Psychology and Neuromarketing. He has authored several papers and books revolving around neuromarketing, social communications, and change management in non-profit organizations. His astounding work experience has received recognition in journals and even international conferences. Apart from his extensive experience as a manager and coordinator, he has been involved in social-field work and serves as a member of the Scientific Committee.

Prof. Russo kicked off the session with a brief introduction to the research IULM University has been doing, which includes the different collaborations, based on neuroscience research and marketing, globally. It was interesting to know about his journey and the professionals connected to his area of work and the expanse of work the research centres he’s affiliated with have been doing until now. He elaborated that this technique of marketing products and services derives its fundamentals from areas like behavioural economics, communication, psychology, bioengineering, etc. Even the art of neuromarketing has now led to sub-trends in this era, including neuropsychology, behavioural economics, and cognitive neuroscience. With stress on covering all the neurotic parts and biometrics that our body contains, like heart rate, eye tracking, face reading, etc., he talked about the technology that has evolved alongside, aiding in designing policies and strategies for business houses to place, promote, and market their products and services. Mr. Russo very interestingly showed through diagrams and videos the power of the subconscious mind, how the parts of the brain accordingly react to the persuasion of advertisements, and finally how the interpreters derive insights into the marketing blueprint.

Professor Russo not only educated the students with theories, explanations, and examples, but he also focused on igniting our interest in this field with a collection of enlightening books by some incredible writers. The next part of the session was profoundly dedicated to the difference between biometrics and neurometrics as techniques of neurological examination, with aspects like accessibility, ease of use, and cost of obtaining data being compared. He fascinated us with real-life studies and short research documentaries on how the brain is mapped to glimpse consumers’ perceptions, associations, loyalties, memory, and knowledge about the brands they look out for in the market.

The session reached its final stage with a Question-Answer session, where our speaker industriously answered all the queries. It was followed by a vote of thanks delivered by the International Cell at SCMS, NOIDA. The webinar proved to be informative.

A session was organized by the International Cell of SCMS, NOIDA on the topic “Impact of Next-Gen Technologies in Marketing” on 15th April 2022 as a part of the Global Talk Series. The esteemed speaker for the session was Ms. Namita Tiwari who is currently serving as the Marketing Director at Wipro. She is a Senior Marketing Leader and Digital & Content Evangelist with rich experience in Campaigns, Content & Communications. She is passionate about creating next-generation marketing programs that converge digital, brand & content. Ms. Namita is an alumnus of Symbiosis Institute of International Business, Pune India from a batch 2000-2002, and has pursued Accelerated Marketing Leadership Program with the prestigious Kellogg School of Management.

The session started with an interesting question by the respected speaker “What comes to your mind when you hear next-gen technologies?” Various responses like Artificial Intelligence, Social Media, Metaverse, Gaming, etc., were received. Through this question, the speaker comprehensively covered the concept of the Metaverse which came into existence in 2021. .

The impact of Artificial Intelligence in Marketing has been tremendous. AI can transform business and customer interaction, can increase operational excellence, and optimize the user experience. It also helps marketers to segment their targeted audience based on their interests and at the same time enables brands in cutting costs and increasing revenues. An example of Alibaba and Starbucks was given to explain this concept more in-depth. Alibaba is known for its AI tools in Marketing. It has now opened up its first AI fashion store in Hong Kong which has focused on streamlining fashion retail. The store has various AI-based technological tools like radio-frequency identification, low-energy Bluetooth chips, gyro-sensors, etc. Another example was Starbucks which uses AI for Marketing. Starbucks uses predictive analytics by making use of its loyalty cards and mobile app to collect and analyze customer data. The company has created a model “AI for Humanity” which they believe can create better connections with customers.

She further emphasized the concept of Phygital Marketing. It is a new term that combines two concepts, physical and digital marketing. A real-life example of this form of marketing was Amazon. Amazon, despite being an online retailing platform, has opened its physical stores in New York as they believe that for certain products customers need the experience of human touch. This feeling of content about spending their hard-earned money on the right products by consumers helps to bridge the gap between the customers and the companies.

The session was concluded by the esteemed speaker giving insightful answers to the questions asked by students of various fields. Post this, the International Cell of SCMS, NOIDA proposed the vote of thanks. The session proved to be very insightful to the students.

She then discussed the Customer-Centric approach in business. She divided the customers into three subheads namely Internal, External and Organic customers. She explained the need of building a balance between the customer expectations and the interaction from the organization to keep the relationship in alignment. To showcase that vividly, she explained a case study of a restaurant that provides fast service at very reasonable rates. So, what she implied that is the expectations from the customer is a fast service and an okay kind of food from the restaurant, so the restaurant doesn’t have to focus on other things as it is already reaching the customers' expectations. The ultimate gist of this case study was to keep the expectations and offerings in alignment which eventually leads to customer satisfaction. After that, she discussed the importance of a customer-centric approach in today’s world. She claimed that being customer-centric breeds loyalty among the customers and with that edge, if a business can be agile with new situations and differentiate itself in the market, they have very good room for growth. The robust claim she had was no matter how much we are into the technology we are still humans, and we always want to feel the real stuff. The business should focus on storytelling for its offering so that it resonates with the customers. The one who is good at storytelling, keeping themselves in the shoes of customers excels. Ms. Mavis then explained the shift of the world to the internet for buying products because of the pandemic. So, as the world has been altering its form of interaction with business, it's high time to re-strategize the business models to remain competitive in the market. She also threw some light on the service design blueprint on how the business can use the design thinking and process accordingly to provide a seamless user experience to the customers.

He started his talk by calling the present time a time of revolution making it the best time to enter the workforce, especially for the students specializing in HR. It is time that employers rethink their priorities regarding their organizations and if the need arises they should not restrain themselves from even changing their business model. However, before implementing the change, the organizations should think about the impact on the audience who would be affected by the change. Besides, he further enlightened the students about the 3 Ws- work, workplace and workforce.

Throughout his talk, he emphasized taking care of the employees and how organizations should empower them to make their own choices and decisions. He stressed that the success of an organization is dependent upon the capabilities of its employees. Therefore, there should be a strong focus on soft skills and showing appreciation to employees.

He also talked about how working from home is making people very exhausted and therefore it is very important to empathize with them.

While concluding, he said that organizations should not follow the one size fits all approach. According to him, there are no best practices because what worked for one organization might not necessarily work for the other company as well. Therefore, organizations should work on finding the difference between the future and the present needs and bridge the gap. They will also have to accept that a lot of things that are there right now will not work in the future. So they should work on finding what works for their organization and what does not.

They should do this in the same way as they deal with environmental sustainability and cultural issues. Political and business officials should also understand the limitations raised by global trade at the convergence of the digital revolution and internationalization.

SCMS NOIDA’s International cell invited Mr. Gordon Tredgold to give his insights and talk about the topic “Emerging Leadership Styles in Industry 4.0” on 21st December 2020, for first-year students.

Mr. Gordon Tredgold has a belief that leaders are not born but are made and that by influencing individuals, he can catalyze and create more enthusiastic leaders who will help change the world and show the world the results, far beyond anybody’s expectations. He teaches leaders and organizations about simple, practical, and pragmatic strategies that help them inspire and attain what they believe in and want to achieve.

Mr. Gordon has also written three books and over 1400 articles, contributing to Forbes, Entrepreneur, Business Insider, Fortune, and many other celebrated and acclaimed publications. Mr. Gordon started his discussion by articulating leadership as a differentiator between success and failure, further defining the term as an individual’s ability to make people “engaged, empowered and excited”. He continued his talk by talking about the failure rates in various domains of the corporate world such as digital transformation (84%), customer initiative (93%), startups (95%), and product launches (93%). He said that the incapability of a leader to communicate goals, strategies, purpose, and outlook to its employees is the biggest reason for the failure of digital transformations and highlighted the example of Ford motors to the students to make them understand the cost of failure the highest being lost reputation. He gave many reasons for failure and explained each of them in detail using a graphical presentation. He said that there should be clearly defined goals and objectives, which should be communicated clearly, simply, and from time to time to avoid any confusion and the number of goals to be set should be minimum so as to give them a priority. Clear roles, responsibilities, and expectations should be set to assert accountability. He also mentioned that complexity is the enemy of execution and that tasks should be made as simple as possible to achieve this an individual must encourage their team to challenge everything. He further added that the application of the Pareto approach can also aid an individual to increase simplicity. He also created an emphasis on transparency so that they are well aware of the problem areas and the leader’s expectations from them and can work on it and improve.

Throughout the session, Mr. Gordon made an emphasis on the mindset. He gave a strong message that a leader has a mindset of a winner and is not scared of failure, which helps him/her thrive and flourish in industry 4.0, and gave real-life examples to prove this point. The session finally came to an end with students asking questions from Mr. Gordon which he answered very patiently.

The webinar was a huge success and all the credit goes to the International Cell of SCMS NOIDA and the faculty in charge who helped in organizing this event
