Top global schools line up for 'Destination India'
Mumbai: As the government readies itself to introduce the Foreign Educational Institutions Bill, which will permit entry of foreign institutions in education sector, 140 Indian and 156 foreign institutions are engaged in academic collaborations for India, reports Business Standard.

In September, U.S. based Georgia Institute of Technology will begin work on its research centre in Hyderabad. The institute is in the process of signing memorandum of understanding with several leading Indian and U.S. industry and academic entities. However, this is just one of the latest in a series of such initiatives by marquee names in the world of education.

According to Business Standard, early this month, the Punjab government collaborated with Carnegie Mellon University to set up a 'Punjab International University' near Ludhiana in a 35 acre complex. Harvard Business School has decided to have a classroom of its own in India for its executive education programmes. Yale University has agreed to develop an India-Yale Leadership Program in areas like curriculum development, faculty development and academic planning.

The Union Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) is said to be firming up a plan before it signs a memorandum of understanding with Yale later this year, when the latter's President, Richard C Levin, visits India.

"These not-for-profit centres are in the areas of energy and information technology. Faculty and students from Georgia Tech and industry and academic partners from India are expected to work closely on research projects that are of value to India," Vijay Madisetti, Executive Director, Georgia Tech India Initiative, told Business Standard from the U.S. "We expect that a small but high-quality postgraduate educational program (where we can grant U.S. MS/PhD degrees) can be initiated following the successful establishment of these research centres, subject to guidance from appropriate Government of India agencies."

2: Welcoming foreign educational institutions with due caution will be a positive move. However it is deplorable that the same government has included a reputed deemed university that is Christ University which has successfully collaborated with reputed foreign universities to enhance educational standards, in the list for de recognition.

4: This will be a good initiative for our country. It will expose our country to global standards.However, the fee charged and entry requirements have to be monitored.
