Traveling to India
India is Fordham Fair Trade's new frontier.
Amani, the student-run business that imports and markets Fair Trade goods here in the United States, has long had partnerships with artisans in Kenya and Bolivia.
Students who are taking Fair Trade courses right now are on the leading edge of
expanding Amani's business connections to India, such as with:
- Conserve, which recycles Delhi ragpickers' refuse into marketable products
- Weavers and jewelry-makers near Dehradun, India
That means that students travel to India as part of their coursework.
At the Gabelli School of Business, this kind of international experience in college is key to a student's future ability to lead in today's global business environment.
