Working and living in India

The key words for any would-be applicant are tolerance, patience and respect – tolerance for a culture with very different values than your own, patience for matters requiring administration hampered by bureaucracy and respect in a culture bound by traditions and hierarchy. With these issues in mind, India is a rising world power and TCS, one of its most foremost global IT service providers with operations across the globe.

I learned a lot about what it means to work for a truly global corporation
“During my time in India with the ACE Nordic Graduate program I learned a lot about what it means to work for a truly global corporation and how to navigate the cultural challenges anybody will experience coming from a Scandinavian background. I am much richer for the experience professionally and am excited about continuing my career with TCS here in Denmark.”
– Klaus Fyhn Jacobsen, ACE graduate 2015

"For me, the ACE Nordic Graduate program is a memorable and rewarding experience both professionally and personally. India gives a sense of perspective that I can't get from Sweden and TCS gives the platform to explore that. I learn a lot about what it means to work for a truly global corporation and how to navigate the cultural challenges anybody will experience coming from a Scandinavian background."
