Hyderabad: The Indian School of Business (ISB) and University of Sydney Business School (USBS) have entered a five-year partnership, to promote research collaborations, academic exchange, and student mobility.
Cooperation between the two schools will be explored in academic research, doctoral research, coursework education, corporate engagement and in contributing to policy development in and for a post-Covid world. The partnership is ISB’s first comprehensive partnership with an Australian School in the business and management field.
Professor Rajendra Srivastava, dean, Indian School of Business, said, “The need of the hour is to forge new academic partnerships that will enhance ISB’s global insights and presence through exchange of ideas and people.”
Dean of the University of Sydney Business School, professor Greg Whitwell, said, “In the face of what seems an increasingly divided world since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, we must seize opportunities to deepen our partnerships with international institutions.”
Joint initiatives being planned include a dual master’s degree, which would be delivered both at the University of Sydney and the Indian School of Business, executive education programmes, as well doctoral student mobility and co-supervision.
Both schools see international immersion as a core requirement for developing future-ready graduates. In 2019, the University of Sydney was ranked the largest student mobility program in Australia for the second year in a row.
