Internationalisation is forming an increasingly vital component of the underlying strategy to improve the quality, relevance, and financial strength of institutions in India today. Till now, most institutions in India have relied upon senior leadership members to drive the internationalisation agenda within individual schools or departments, however, there is an urgent need to develop institution-wide strategies that look at international partnerships and learning within various facets of university operations. This webinar will focus on sharing practical recommendations and concrete examples of how internationalisation can be embedded within the broader institutional strategy of Indian universities and colleges.
