Representatives from CII India recently visited the Christ University in Bangalore, India.
Sainesh Dar, regional corporate development director -- south Asia; Zainab Fidai, office manager -- international; and Amit Pradhan, corporate development manager -- India, all spent time on campus interacting with students, the faculty and teaching staff.
The Christ University is one of the leading higher-education institutions in the country, with around 21,000 students undertaking undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes. That includes about 600 foreign exchange students, mainly from Korea, China, Japan, the Middle East and Africa.
The CII team was invited to the campus to get first-hand experience of the facilities, infrastructure and teaching methodology in place. A proposed collaboration will be aimed at introducing CII qualifications into the department of professional studies at the university, where students pursuing their graduate programmes also opt for other professional qualification programmes.
