The School of Management visited India earlier this month as part of a wider University initiative to explore opportunities for future partnerships and collaboration.

Led by the Dean, Professor Veronica Hope Hailey, the delegation included Dr Pete Nutall, Director of International Relations, Stephen Rangecroft, Director of Marketing and External Relations, Navdeep Uppal, Head of MSc Operations, and Angela Webley, Marketing and External Relations Manager.

In addition to attendance at the Education UK event in Delhi, along with representatives from the International Relations Office (IRO) and the Faculty of Engineering & Design, the delegation visited the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIMC) and H.R. College of Commerce & Economics, University of Mumbai, where opportunities for future collaborations were discussed.

Two University-wide alumni receptions were held in Delhi and Mumbai where Professor Hope Hailey provided an update on the University and School of Management followed by a fascinating insight into her recent research on Trust and Leadership.  Each event attracted over 30 alumni and special guests including Richard Everitt, Director Education, British Council India.

Professor Hope Hailey said “The visit was a great success in terms of raising the visibility of the School and University and exploring future partnerships. We are committed to developing our links in this fascinating and powerful market. We are particularly excited about future collaborations with both IIMC and H.R. College of Commerce & Economics.”

Dr Peter Nuttall added “India provides an exciting opportunity for the School to extend its international strategy, shifting away from the more traditional recruitment model to one that embraces benevolent partnerships with key institutions through which a wide range of collaborative activities can be carried including research, student exchange and staff mobility and links with local companies.”
