A member of the Ivy League, Yale School of Management is the third oldest institution for higher education in the United States.  

The team of delegates was led by Dr Shyam Sunder, the James L Frank professor of accounting, economics, and finance at the Yale School of Management. 

More than thirty MBA students from about a dozen countries spent an entire day at HPPL Thane, observing digital printing operations powered by HP Indigo 20000. The students also toured the digital experience centre, R&D facilities, exhibition room and the flexible packaging manufacturing plant in Thane.  

The visit was supported by formal presentations by senior company leaders on technological and managerial innovations in the Indian economy, the packaging industry, sustainability and the Indian economy at large. The objective of the visit was to help the students gain a perspective on the economic and financial reforms, growth, development and the transformation now underway in India, said a senior official at Huhtamaki PPL.

According to Huhtamaki-PPL, this visit helped the international students get a flavour of the eco-system that defines Mumbai and the Indian economy.

“We believe that this visit will facilitate the creation of yet another pathway for collaboration; this time with the reputed Yale School of Management,” the official said.
