UPenn, Arizona State, Indiana University Sign MOU with Jindal School
NEW DELHI (IANS) – The Jindal Global Business School (JGBS), of O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU), has expanded its international partnership portfolio by signing 11 new MoUs with business schools and universities in five countries spanning four continents.
In the US, the international collaborations will be with the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, the Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University, Kelley School of Business, Indiana University-Bloomington, and Florida State University.
As part of its global ambition JGBS has expanded its reach to institutions in Vietnam, Australia, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
The new MoUs will create a range of opportunities for JGBS students. With UPenn it will add strong value as an elite study abroad component to its 1-year Global MBA in Business Analytics. With Arizona State, a dual degree program will bring JGBS students one step closer to living and working for up to 3 years in the US through the Optional Practical Training program. Study abroad and student exchange programs with Florida State and Indiana University will offer learning experiences in a global setting.
Through the difficult months of the pandemic, JGBS persevered and remained committed to providing international exposure to its students. A list of curated partners was created who were able to offer long-term and short-term mobility options, keeping in mind the health and safety concerns with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic. Approximately 200 students have explored exchange and study abroad options through partnership arrangements since 2020, many of whom have pursued advanced degree programs in institutions in Australia, the UK, and the US. It is worth noting that since its inception in 2010, JGBS has established international collaborations with over 72 business schools and universities in 24 different countries.
