With the connections made across several countries, so early in life, travel and jobs will become so much easier in the future, The school of Management at AP Goyal Shimla University stands as one of the iconic one.
While it may not be generally known, major Indian universities and institutes maintain regular collaborations with institutions abroad. Dual degrees have become rather popular where the study takes place on two different campuses for a degree each. This can only come from active collaboration. Students thus get an opportunity to study abroad for one of the degrees.
While such courses cost a lot more than the traditional education, they open the eyes to the international scenario. With such a diverse experience, students would be expected to become more dynamic, cooperative, and willing to take up global challenges.
Such workers ultimately would become assets to the nation as highly productive citizens who represent the values like cultural ambassadors. Foreign exposure during education often results in learning the rudiments of a foreign language that goes one step further in promoting international understanding.

Kuleshov University (Belarus).
Will foreign influence really be advantages all the way?
Regarding those who doubt a cultural invasion and negative effects, India has a vibrant economy quite suited to business growth. Consider the internet and the mass media that has brought tremendous growth and broken down regional barriers. A mistake India always made was to attach excessive importance to theory. Compare with America and Europe and you immediately realize how pragmatic they have been though they learn theory too.
Putting together the best of both worlds is the ultimate target. Developing leadership and managerial skills along with insights would go a long way to develop Indian traditional talent. Getting modern is half the battle won. A blend of the Indian and the foreign education would open up great vistas of development in business management education.
