-- The SDM Institute for Management Development (SDM-IMD), Mysore has signed an agreement with Mays Business School, Texas A&M University, for a student and faculty exchange programme.
According to Mr. Ramesh Venkateswaran, Director, SDM-IMD, “The institute has always aimed to offer the best education to its students. Our associations with such globally recognized institutes will give our students a wider perspective to the world of business management which is very important for their growth.”
According to the agreement, up to four students from SDM-IMD would get an opportunity to spend a semester and attend courses at Mays Business School. An equal number of MBA students from Mays would be invited to study a semester in SDM-IMD’s award-winning campus in Mysore.
As an alternative, the agreement also envisions undergraduate students from Mays attending a five-week summer programme focused on conducting business in India, at SDM-IMD, during May-June. The exchange will also encourage institutions to promote the exchange of faculty for teaching and collaborative research programmes. Earlier this year, the institute had signed a similar agreement with the Global Management Education Institute of Shanghai University.
While Texas A&M was considered the ‘1st overall national university’ in the US (Washington Monthly 2007), the Mays Business School’s MBA programme was considered the 8th best-administered program, with the 8th best campus facilities (The Princeton Review, 2007). Forbes (2007) considered it the eighth best public programme, 22nd overall.
