GMAC to bring students from 27 nations 

Study in India initiative in collaboration with 9 leading Indian B-Schools

The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) will bring students from 27 countries to Indian B-Schools. GMAC is the global body that conducts GMAT exams and is the gateway to foreign B-schools.

In-Focus Nations

The 27 countries in Asia, Africa and Europe include Germany, France, Israel, Japan, South Africa, South Korea and the Philippines.

According to GMAC, they are targeting 13 countries in south and south east Asia, five countries in middle-east, two in Europe and seven in Africa for this India initiative.

“India has all the elements in the making of becoming a global education hub because it has the unique advantage of providing world class, high quality education at affordable prices. We have agreed to work as a facilitator. Initially we are looking at 9 Indian B-Schools and the numbers will grow gradually,” informed Sangeet Chowfla, president and chief executive of GMAC.

He said ‘study in India’ is a logical extension of ‘Make in India’ goals. He said some of the India B-Schools are among the best in the world but that people in other countries either do not know about them or do not consider them as among the best. This “perception needs to change” though unbiased information.

Nine B-schools on-board GMAC

–Indian School of Business Hyderabad

–SP Jain Institute of Management and Research

–Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (both Mumbai)

This initiative will assist B-Schools in creating a larger and much “diverse international talent pool” while offering students a high- impact learning experience.
