Cardiff Metropolitan University, UK has partnered with Universal Business School (UBS), Karjat, near Mumbai to launch UK Masters and Bachelor programmes in Business Management in India after the successful validation event was held at the campus recently.
Universal Business School is India’s first green Business School, that has been founded by multinational CEO’s, who have led multi-billion dollar business globally. It has a fully residential campus in Karjat, 50 miles from Mumbai with one of the best education infrastructures in India.
With this partnership, Universal Business School will offer Cardiff Metropolitan Undergraduate and Postgraduate Business and Management programmes to students. As the programmes are the same as those offered on-campus in Cardiff, Universal Business School students will have the advantage of being able to transfer to on-campus study, should they wish to undertake part of their studies at the Cardiff Metropolitan campus.
The Vice-Chancellor of Cardiff Metropolitan University, UK, Professor Antony Chapman said, “We are delighted to be involved in this exciting new partnership with Universal Business School. This will provide opportunities for staff and student exchanges and will contribute to the internationalisation of the University and to the development of sustainable partnerships with high quality partners internationally.’’
Speaking on the occasion, Gurdip Anand, Chairman, Universal Business School said, “We are pleased with our strategic partnership with Cardiff Metropolitan University and the subsequent validation of our faculty, infrastructure and systems by a top ranked UK University. It is testament to the emphasis we put on quality. Aristotle had said, ‘Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education’. At UBS, Karjat we truly follow this maxim by imparting the highest calibre of management thought imbued with experiential learning and liberal education, to build their character and their personality.”
Faculty from Cardiff Metropolitan will regularly visit Universal Business School, to hold training events, to give guest lectures and to meet with staff and students. All programmes will be subject to the university’s quality assurance processes with degrees awarded by Cardiff Metropolitan University.
Universal Business School now joins the global list of established Cardiff Metropolitan University transnational partnerships with organisations including the Arab Academy for Science and Technology, Egypt, the LSC Group of Colleges, ICBT in Sri Lanka and the East Asia Institute of Management in Singapore. Cardiff Metropolitan University has one of the most diverse student representations from over 140 countries practising 92 religions.
