Strathclyde set for India
After running a one-year MBA at nine different locations around the world, Strathclyde University will start a master’s programme in management at its own campus in India, being set up at Greater Noida in collaboration with Skil Infrastructure, an Indian partner.
The duration of this programme will be of two years, unlike MBA programmes at UK varsities which normally last a year.
The fee students will have to pay for two years is R8 lakh plus £3100 for a semester in Glasgow whereas at the main campus in Glasgow, the tuition fee for one year MBA is £22,000.
“We have designed the course keeping in mind the requirements of the Indian industry. The decision (on the duration) was driven by the rising popularity of two-year MBAs in India,” said Phill Taylor, associate dean-international, University of Strathclyde and academic director, India campus.
The degree that one would receive after two years would be the same as one is entitled to get in the Scottish campus.
The delivery of the programme would be different. The first year will be taught completely in India followed by one semester in Glasgow and the last semester will again be taught in India which will entail a four-month long internship.
The programme is meant primarily for the fresh graduates, as Taylor informs HT Horizons, though the experienced professionals will also be encouraged to apply.
