Tokyo, Japan– June 21, 2019 –GMO Research, Inc. (https://gmo-research.jp/ ) is an Internet research company under the greater GMO Internet Group. On June 17, 2019, the company came to the formal agreement with the Indian Institute of Technology in Madras (IIT Madras) to accept its students as interns. IIT Madras is an institution that specializes in engineering, science and technology.

Background of agreement with the IIT Madras

This is now the second overseas university to have begun internship programs with GMO Research, the first being the Thunderbird School of Global Management in the United States.

As a company focused on internet research in an international context, GMO Research formed this partnership with IIT Madras in hopes to train system engineers capable of leading the field on a global stage. The more diversity in experiences and backgrounds that we bring into our offices, the greater the opportunity to explore and rethink Internet research's infrastructure.

Shinichi Hosokawa, GMO Research's Chief Executive Officer states that "As GMO Research expands further into international Internet Research markets, it has never been more necessary for the company to acquire globally competent employees. In order to properly foster a global mindset within the company, we have created these internship programs to incorporate this way of thinking into the different stages of our work flow. IIT Madras as well as the Thunderbird School of Global Management are the first to partake in GMO Research's journey to increasing their presence in the global Internet Research industry. These programs will act as the second flow of global input into our work place, the first being our overseas offices. We believe that although the interns alone will bring a difference through their ideas and expertise, the dynamic interactions between our domestic offices, international offices and the program participants could be extremely fruitful."
