The Rady School of Management at University of California, San Diego recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Amrut Mody School of Management at Ahmedabad University in western India. The MOU creates a mutually beneficial partnership between the universities that will promote academic cooperation and development.
Part of the arrangement includes collaboration on combined research projects and exchanges of faculty and students between campuses. The universities plan to expand their educational capacities by arranging conferences, executive education programs, workshops, and other combined events. The partnership will also allow educational resources, such as library materials, publications, and other science and technology information, to be easily shared between institutions.
Professor Robert S. Sullivan, Dean of the Rady School of Management, and Professor Bibek Banerjee, Senior Dean of Strategic Initiatives and Planning at Ahmedabad University, signed the MOU in April at the San Diego campus. Both parties expressed excitement for this international partnership that will enhance the world-class education and research of both institutions. Professor Sullivan said at the MOU signing event, “Together, with Ahmedabad University, we aim to enhance our reach within India and strengthen our academic aspirations.”
