Global Indian B-Schools

From BS : A number of Indian B-schools have decided to establish offshore campuses, and the Middle East nations and Singapore are clearly emerging as the favourite destinations.

MDI Gurgaon, for instance, is planning to set up a campus in Doha for which it is in advanced talks with the government authorities in Qatar and the Indian embassy. Joining MDI are the Institute of Clinical Research India (ICRI) and Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIM-B) which have chosen Singapore as the location for their first international campus. IMT Ghaziabad too established its first foreign campus in Dubai in September 2006 and received a license from the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to offer higher educational degrees.

One of the early birds, Xaviers Labour Relations Institute (XLRI) Jamshedpur had established its first campus in Dubai in 2001 where it began offering an executive education programme in collaboration with the Al Abbas Institute of Technology. The institute followed it up with a campus in Singapore in early 2006 in alliance with Image International. Similarly, SP Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR), which currently runs its Global MBA and executive MBA programmes in Dubai from the Dubai Academic city, has set up a new campus in Singapore.
