The University recently signed a new Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) with Bishop Heber College in Tiruchirappalli, South India.
The agreement enables the college to offer an International Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme to professionals with at least two years experience. The course will last for 14 months and will include visits from University lecturers.
Dean of the University of Wolverhampton Business School, Professor Dom Wilson, and Principal M. Marcus Diepen Boominathan, signed the MOC at a ceremony in India.
Professor Wilson said: “We are delighted to sign this new agreement with Bishop Heber College, and look forward to working closely with their staff and students on this programme.
“The MBA focuses on the application of research to practice and will help students to further develop self confidence, self reliance and intellectual flexibility. It also aims to develop time management and group working skills.”
Initially 20 students will start the course, and there will be two intakes in June and September.
The new partnership follows successful student and staff exchange programmes between the two institutions.
Also present at the signing were the University’s Director, International Jo Gittens and South Asia Regional Head Pragyat Singh, as well as Bursar Rev P. Manoharan and Head of the Heber Institute of Management Studies Michael David Premkumar from Bishop Heber.
