The Indian School of Business has partnered with the University of Sydney for academic research and coursework engagement.
Two triple-crowned Business Schools, the Indian School of Business (ISB) and the University of Sydney Business School (USBS) have entered a five-year partnership, which is one of the most comprehensive of its kind.
These two world-class business schools have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote research collaboration, academic exchange, and student mobility.
Cooperation between the two schools will be explored in academic research, doctoral research, coursework education, corporate engagement, and contributing to policy development in and for a post-COVID world.
‘’ISB’s comprehensive partnership with University of Sydney Business School will usher in new insights based on multidisciplinary research that will contribute to management thought leadership and in designing new trajectories in management education globally,” said Professor Rajendra Srivastava, Dean of the Indian School of Business.
The partnership is ISB’s first comprehensive partnership with an Australian School in the business and management field.
Initiatives planned in the partnership
“Despite the challenges of distance, we are delighted to celebrate this new partnership with such a prestigious institution and look forward to many more collaborations with the Indian School of Business,” said Dean of the University of Sydney Business School, Professor Greg Whitwell.
Joint initiatives being planned include a dual master’s degree, which would be delivered both at the University of Sydney and the Indian School of Business, executive education programmes, as well doctoral student mobility and co-supervision.
“India’s new National Education Policy will go a long way in the internationalisation of education and it will bring in more value to the educational set-up,” said Brett Galt-Smith, Counsellor (Education and Research), Australian High Commission, New Delhi
In 2019, the University of Sydney was ranked the largest student mobility program in Australia for the second year in a row.
