York U business school has Plan B for India campus

April 30, 2012

Amid uncertain Indian politics, legislation to permit foreign PSE entities to operate stand-alone campuses in India may not be in place when York University's Schulich School of Business opens its campus in Hyderabad next year. That's why Schulich's dean has a Plan B -- a twinning arrangement with a Hyderabad school, as required under current Indian regulations. The longer India takes to pass the legislation, the slower the pace at which Schulich's campus reaches capacity. In the meantime, the business school needs to work with a local partner. The dean is heading to India this month to choose one of 4 possible partners. Globe and Mail
