Bangalore, June 21, 2017: A new Indo-French partnership is poised to bring educational opportunities in high-demand professional streams like luxury management, sports management,. tourism and hospitality management, digital leadership etc.
The Bangalore -based Golden Valley Education Trust (GVET) and career-ready higher education player iNurture, have joined with Paris-head-quartered Galileo Global Education in the new venture which will take off shortly in Bangalore.
Says Alain Kruger, Director MBA ESG at Galileo: “We’re excited about giving Indian students more exposure to Europe’s major industries and giving them a better understanding of the types of jobs and career paths that are available to them. We view this partnership as an investment in potential future industry leaders by helping students develop the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in their career.
Adds Ashwin Ajila, Founder & Managing Director, iNurture: “Partnering with Galileo and Golden Valley Education Trust will give us a unique opportunity to give our students a truly global experience that can help better prepare them for the future. Our goal for these programs is to help students apply the academic skills they are learning in school to solve real-world issues and, ultimately, show them how their higher education directly relates to their career interests and aspirations."
The new courses which Galileo will conduct at the Bangalore campus, for starters, cover emerging areas where little formal training exists -- like an MBA in Luxury Management. Sport too is an expanding industry across the globe and will be a billion dollar industry with a demand for high calibre leaders. IPL, ISL, PRO Kabbadi and Hockey India League are some of the major sporting leagues flourishing in India. artnership with leading Sports Management Company DNA Networks will provide student’s access to all major Premier Leagues in India. MBA in Tourism and Hospitality Management is an advanced programme specially designed keeping in mind the needs of the Industry, which is flourishing on the back of increased globalization, enhanced income levels and added propensity to travel among people. The proposed new courses include a 5 year Master of Design and a 5 year Master in Digital Leadership.
T Venkat Vardhan, Managing Director DNA Entertainment Networks and President, GVET, explained that discussions are already in an advanced stage to ensure that all the courses receive certification from Mysore University, to meet statutory requirements in India.
