Students from Seton Hall University Make a Special Visit to the InterraIT Noida Office

March 06, 2018 Noida


In a special event held on March 06, 2018 at its Noida office, InterraIT hosted a delegation of business students from Seton Hall University headed by Dr. AD Amar, as part of an open house session. The delegation also included a team of students and professors from IIF headed by Dr. Saurabh Agarwal.


The Open House session started with an introduction from the CEO of InterraIT, Asoke Laha, who shared his experiences and journey – starting as a graduate student in the U.S., to working for companies like GTE and Cadence, and to finally starting InterraIT in California. He highlight important issues like high cost of skilled programmers in the U.S., the availability of a highly educated workforce in India, and how these conditions facilitated the IT companies to outsource work to India.


Mr. Laha made students aware about the ease of starting a business in India, the rules and regulations to be followed, and the management skills required to run an enterprise successfully. Talking about success at work, he added, “What is it that takes to be up there (up in the ladder)? Communication & Work Ethics are the two most important things”.  


The audience then had the privilege of sharing their own views. Dr. AD Amar talked about his experiences as a university student in India and later on mentioned that to be successful in India while running a business, the management should learn to accept and encourage the challengers.


To this, Dr. Saurabh Agarwal added – “India has come a long way in the ease of doing business. We have become a part of the elite club of the Top 100 nations on the ease of doing business index. Also, the government has taken many measures like demonetization and the real estate RERA act which has made it easy to carry out business operations”. He also talked about the importance of finding a reliable partner and deciding on a course of action based on the demographics of the country.


The session concluded with the delegation honoring the InterraIT CEO Asoke Laha. Dr. Saurabh Agarwal presented him with the Journal of Finance, which is ranked 3rd by the American Statistical Association. Also, the Seton Hall University students presented Mr. Laha with a small representation from their University and graciously invited him to visit their University and inspire their IT students, which Mr. Laha warmly accepted.
