A native of Kota, in Rajasthan, India, Ankit Khandelwal has been using OCW for the past seven years.
Upon his return to India, Khandelwal decided to pursue a degree in management. “My vision was to become an interdisciplinary professional possessing abilities to merge different skills … to bring about innovative solutions”. Because going to school for a Master’s was not feasible for him at the time, Khandelwal turned to OCW, to help him with a “Self-designed International Management Study Program”.
During his international management program, Khandelwal recognized the need to understand other cultures. He explains, “In order to lead/work with the global workforce, I also need to make myself more global.” Therefore, he studied OCW courses on Russia, China, Japan, and Central Asia.
