To facilitate exchange of students between the UK and India, a management institute from Mumbai has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the prestigious King’s College London. The MOU was signed last week by Dr Indu Shahani, former Sherriff of Mumbai and Dean of the Indian School of Management and Entrepreneurship, Mumbai and Dr Joanna Newman, MBE, FRSA, Vice-Principal (International), King’s College London.

Dr Joanna Newman said on Tuesday the MOU would increase cooperation between King’s College and the Institute facilitating “our students to work with the institute’s design, entrepreneurship and business ideas.”

“We want to send our students to spend time there, and welcome students back to King’s in return. I think there is much to learn from the institute, and it operates in such a vibrant and changing environment. Likewise, our own entrepreneurship institute has ambitious plans and is situated in perhaps the most global city of the world, London.”

Speaking at the reception, G P Hinduja, Co-Chairman of the Hinduja Group referred to the work being done by the Hinduja Foundation in promoting education and its contribution in increasing cooperation between UK and India in the fields of education. Stating that “education is must for everyone”, Hinduja said “it gives wisdom and from Wisdom you get everything.”

India’s High Commissioner to the UK, Y K Sinha said India and UK have been collaborating successfully in various fields, particularly in the field of education. Noting that India has recently set up 40 Skill Development Schools, Sinha said “UK can be helpful to India in this area.”
