Indiana University,IIM Lucknow announce new programmes
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Washington, May 9: Making its first significant foray into Indian market, Kelley School of Business of Indiana University has introduced year-long certificate programmes in business analytics and global strategy in collaboration with IIM Lucknow.
The two graduate-level certificate programmes, in partnership with Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Lucknow, are expected to benefit about 100 students.
One of the programmes would be for students enrolled at IIM-Lucknow while other for working professionals in India.
Ultimately, Kelley and IIM-Lucknow plan to partner to deliver a graduate degree programme on business analytics, similar to what is already offered at IU, an official release said.
"Kelley School is on the cutting edge in the rapidly growing field of business analytics. The IIM Lucknow is widely recognised as being among the finest business schools in India and, indeed, the world," said Dan Smith, Dean, Kelley School.
"Our collaborative goal is to fundamentally advance the quality of decision-making by business leaders by improving their ability to draw meaningful insights from the massive amounts of data available to them today," Smith said.
Notably the agreement in this regard was signed last year during the India visit of the Indiana University president Michael A McRobbie.
"Information systems and business analytics is a very strong area at Kelley," said Devi Singh, Director IIM-Lucknow.
"Their experience in developing programmes successfully, particularly working closely with US and multinational companies -- which have operations around the world, including in India -- is impressive," he said.
Kelley's student and faculty ties to India already were extensive. Of the more than 850 Indian students enrolled at IU, about 400 are enrolled in Kelley's graduate and undergraduate programmes.
In recent years, students and faculty have frequently travelled to India for classes and social entrepreneurship activities. The school has 14 faculty of Indian descent.
