Dear All,

I'm Niranjan, a budding Entrepreneur with more than 16yrs of 'work' experience (worked at various levels in various companies including RIL, before I started my own venture, Triace Solutions almost an year back) and a burning desire to make it big in International Business.

While I did do a handful of Import-Export transactions in my career, most of them were limited to specific tasks out of the whole process, which never allowed me to go into intricacies or the overall big picture. I just began a few Import transactions and was seriously looking for an opportunity where I can learn more, but without having to hold/stop my ongoing business.

'Niryat Bandhu @ Your Desktop' program so brilliantly conceived and executed jointly by DGFT and IIFT came across as a boon at the right time and I grabbed it with both hands. I'm extremely glad to be one of the fortunate 60 who made it to the first ever batch of this program and I must agree that within the first few classes itself I've realised the tremendous impact this program can go on to make in our lives.

Thanks to the digital delivery mode of this program, we are getting to learn minutest and highly beneficial details of Import-Export business from the best Professors in the country without even having to step out of our Home/Offices. This method is so flexible that I could participate in a couple of classes while travelling too (using my Laptop and Internet dongle). Thoughtful use of appropriate technology by the Technical team is giving way to smoother sessions day in day out, even while using Internet with lower bandwidth.

Also, true to it's name...Campus 360 site is keeping us connected to all aspects of the program including discussion forum, quizzes and their results, and even storing all the sessions in archives which can be made use by us for either viewing missed classes if any or repeated learning of important topics. Apart from the Professors, we are able to connect with our classmates too on fora of the site and share our knowledge. What more can we ask, when such 360 degree connectivity is allowed to us not only for the program period, but for the rest of our life, like a true 'Bandhu'/Friend indeed.

I'm sure my business and life would now change for good and forever. With another one week to go for completion of this program, I'm already confident of taking on the otherwise highly risky International Business with ease and create win-win situation for each of my Suppliers, Buyers, Bankers, Employees and End users etc almost everyone who is connected and not the least our beloved country, India.

My heartfelt thanks to the entire Team @ IIFT and also each and every person behind this outstanding program. I would wholeheartedly recommend this to every Entrepreneur and Employee from our country who would like to take their businesses all across the globe. Wishing everyone THE BEST....

Dear All,

I am Anjali, having Bachelor and Master Degree in Computer Application and worked for some multinational companies in the domain of information technology for more than eight years prior to switching over to international trade. In January 2011 while staying abroad, I started my first assignment for international trade and bulk shipping of mineral resources from South-East Asian countries to India for Steel industry, but strongly felt to learn fundamentals of Export-Import business in systematic manner. Finally, it’s DGFT and IIFT, which have given me this big opportunity to develop my skills without sacrificing my full time job and other family occupation and assignments.

I wholeheartedly thank DGFT and IIFT for giving me this opportunity.

Once again thanks to IIFT for giving me an opportunity to learn export-import business in interactive manner.
