India: Business education from Scotland?

Starting off a new series today: a catalogue of stories of success. Of businesses from all over the globe kicking-off their India ventures, either trade or direct/joint business ventures. Dubbed the India Success Stories, this first one is from the education sector and a not so likely player- Scotland. Let the inspiration flow…..

 The University of Strathclyde is to open its first overseas campus after forging a major international collaboration in India.

The initiative will see Strathclyde Business School and pioneering infrastructure firm SKIL opening a campus in Greater Noida, near Delhi, which will deliver undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA level courses.

The long-term agreement is in its final stages and is an important new link between Scotland and one of the world’s most important economies.

Scotland’s Enterprise Minister, Jim Mather, was among the first to welcome the news as he met Professor Susan Hart, Dean of Strathclyde Business School, and JP Rai, Group CEO of SKIL, in the Indian capital.

Enterprise Minister Jim Mather said: “ By expanding its reach into India, Strathclyde Business School is helping raise Scotland’s business and executive education profile on the global stage. I look forward to seeing this partnership progressing.”
