Univ of Strathclyde Business School to open India campus

This would be the first campus of the university in India. "The joint initiative will deliver undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA level courses. Similar campuses are expected to be launched at Mumbai and Chennai later," SKIL said in a statement.

The Noida campus would be functional in September 2011. According to the statement, more than 1,200 students are expected to join the school. The recruitment process for the academic staff would begin next month.

Strathclyde Business School Dean Susan Hart said the two-year Masters in Management programme is aimed at developing entrepreneurial and dynamic business leaders.

"In the following years, the School will also offer a three-year Bachelor in Business Administration, and the globally renowned, one-year Strathclyde MBA programme...," Hart noted.

SKIL Group CEO J P Rai said the company has worked with the university to ensure that the original 'Strathclyde curriculum is delivered in the context of the role that Indian managers will be expected to play on the world stage'.
