The event brought together a visiting delegation of Mumbai's leading Deans and Principals. The event was part of the DICE Immersion 2018 Educators' Delegation to the UK organised by ISME and supported by the British Council.

Dean of the School of Management, Professor Veronica Hope Hailey, gave an engaging lecture on building effective leadership teams and Dr Robin Shields spoke to the group about the School's DBA in Higher Education Management.

The event follows on from the School's very successful 50th anniversary celebrations held in New Delhi and Mumbai in November 2016, at which the 50th anniversary MBA and MSc scholarships for Indian students were launched.

Veronica said:

This MoU makes official the highly successful, ongoing relationship with our great friends at ISME. The official signing ceremony with our Vice-Chancellor and Dr Indu Shahani rounded off a highly enjoyable morning with the delegation of leading Deans and Principals. Seeing so many women leaders in one place was an inspiration in itself. I very much look forward to our ongoing collaboration.
