The Jindal of Banking & Finance (JSBF) at OP Jindal Global University (JGU) has expanded its international partnership network by signing and initiating the process of signing nine new Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with leading universities in five countries. As a part of its ambition and commitment to providing its students a global learning experience, JGU’s Finance School has extended its reach to institutions around the world, including in the three leading higher education destinations – Australia, the United Kingdom and Canada. Students of B.Com (Hons.) and B.A. (Hons.) (Finance & Entrepreneurship) at JGU will benefit from international collaborations with the top universities in Australia, Canada, Germany, Israel, the UK.
Through the difficult months of the pandemic, JSBF has persevered to remain committed towards providing international exposure to its students of B.Com (Hons) and B.A. (Hons) in Finance & Entrepreneurship (BA F&E). More than 15 B.Com students had offers for attending semester exchange in an online or physical mode of learning.
During the tumultuous period between 2020 and 2021, JSBF continued to develop new international opportunities for enhanced inter-cultural exposure and international learning for a post pandemic world.
Nine partner universities — University of Sussex, University of Nottingham, and Nottingham Trent University in the UK; Deakin University, Macquarie University and Western Sydney University of Australia; University of New Brunswick, Canada; Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, Germany; and IDC Herzliya, Israel — offer specialized learning in various programmes that are most attractive for graduates of Commerce, Accounting, Finance, and Entrepreneurship.
The students will benefit from the international opportunities that take different forms including short-term study abroad programmes, semester exchanges, postgraduate pathways, dual undergraduate degree, dual post-graduate degree, and summer/winter schools.
As students of Commerce, Finance & Entrepreneurship gradually return the buzzing JGU campus, JSBF has doubled its efforts to partner with universities for short-term and long-term study opportunities. This is being done to provide holistic global education in commerce, finance, and entrepreneurship to students of the current B.Com. (Hons) and BA (Hons) Finance & Entrepreneurship programmes, but also for the new programmes that JSBF will start from August 2022, including, a first in India, Global B.Com. (Hons) in partnership with Deakin University Australia, and a B.Com. (Hons) in Capital Markets in partnership with the National Stock Exchange (NSE) Academy.
JSBF is committed to providing a broad range of international perspective through international mobility to create a truly global learning experience for students. The Jindal and Deakin Education (JADE) Partnership, a first of its kind and in accordance with the National Education Policy 2020, was launched in October 2021 to offer innovative models of global education, training, and research for students in India. Under this unique partnership, JSBF will offer the Global B.Com. Honours, a first of its kind in India, to students who will transfer to Deakin University in Australia in the third year. At Deakin, they will study and earn a Bachelor of Business and their prestigious MBA (International).
“We are delighted that the Jindal School of Banking & Finance has built diverse partnerships with leading universities around the world for our students of commerce, finance and entrepreneurship. On top of the currently popular B.Com. and the BA in Finance & Entrepreneurship programmes, the School will be launching three new programmes in Fall 2022 – the Global B.Com with Deakin University, B.Com in Capital Markets with the NSE Academy, and the MSc in Behavioural Finance,” said Professor C. Raj Kumar, Founding Vice Chancellor, OP Jindal Global University.
The Dean of JSBF, Professor (Ashish Bharadwaj, said, “Studying commerce and finance in a global context, post pandemic, is not going to be a luxury or a strategy. It is going to be a bigger necessity than ever before. JSBF has built new partnerships and strengthened existing partnerships in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia for our students and graduates who will be the future leaders in commerce, business, finance and entrepreneurship.”
