Kansas International event to address India

March 25, 2008


A Kansas University faculty member who led a study-abroad trip to India will discuss the program's experiences during a Kansas International breakfast event at 7:30 a.m. Friday at Alvamar Country Club, 1600 Crossgate Drive.

The presentation, "Business and India: Our Experiences," will be led by Sanjay Mishra, an associate professor of business at KU. Other participants - Ken Chang, Thomas Gifford, Abby Pringle and Jesse Song - also are scheduled to be available during the discussion.

Mishra was part of the 20-person team that went to India over winter break to observe the growing economy in action. Among topics that Mishra and others intend to discuss during the Kansas International meeting: visible growth; the role of women and families in Indian businesses; a young and positive India; and Indian hospitality and service.

Kizer Cummings Jewelers is sponsor for the event.

Cost is $10 for students and $15 for adults. For more information or to reserve a spot, call 865-4425 or e-mail
