Second-tier international business schools have
started setting up research centres and b-schools following the premier
foreign business schools like Insead, ESCP-EAP European School of Management
and University of Texas. These schools are showing interest in providing
business management programme for Indian students.
Institutions like the Aston Business School, Birmingham has already started a research centre in India and they plan to offer executive MBA programmes.
Most collaboration of global business schools, as of now is restricted to Indian Institute of Management (IIMs) and Indian Institute of Technology (IITs). But, the second-tier B-Schools are also looking at other institutes in India.
Business School at the University of Hertfordshire, is exploring the option of offering research programs, faculty exchange or student exchange. The British Council in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai are coordinating with Indian and UK institutions in this direction.
The focus in Mumbai and Kolkata is on business and management. In Chennai, the mission will focus on biotechnology and in Delhi on art and design. Senior faculty from the business schools of Kingston University, Newcastle University, University of Hertfordshire and Aston University are visiting institutions in Mumbai and Kolkata.
Institutes from Mumbai participating in this mission include Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, Jankidevi Bajaj Institute of Management Studies, SP Jain Institute of Management and Research and Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies.
