Indian Institute of Management Bangalore 

Professor Brian Morgan of Cardiff School of Management has recently returned from India where he held discussions with educational organisations and businesses in Delhi and Bangalore.

The main aim of the visit, which was supported by the British Council and International Business Wales, was to develop the Memorandum of Understanding between UWIC and the globally recognised Indian Institute of Management (IIMB) in Bangalore. Also at the heart of the discussions with the IIMB was a proposal to provide a ‘customised MBA’ for international companies in India that have a significant base in Wales or the UK.

Two students from the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff (UWIC) have been accepted at the prestigious Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) as part of a student exchange programme.

Robert Jones and Mehul Penani, who are students on UWIC’s MBA programme at the Cardiff School of Management - itself one of the biggest in Europe – will be studying at the Indian business school for one semester.
 
The exchange programme is part of UWIC’s strategy of forming strong global links with other institutions and businesses. The University also aims to bring international experience to Cardiff for the benefit of the local economy.
