TAPMI, a top-tier Indian business school, will help Macquarie University set up a world-class finance lab at their Sydney headquarters
To set up a finance laboratory at MU’s Sydney headquarters the TA Pai Management Institute (TAPMI), Manipal has signed an agreement with Australian Macquarie University (MU). To exchange of academic staff for joint research projects MU will also collaborate with TAPMI. Mark Gabbott, Executive Dean and Faculty, MU and Raghunath Rudran, Acting Director and Dean Administration, TAPMI had signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
Mark Gabbott informed that the university wants to set up a finance lab similar to that at TAPMI for their students. TAPMI has research skills they want to tap into. They were looking at institutions that are highly ranked and renowned. More importantly, they were looking at the faculty profile, student strength and their aspirations. They found TAPMI to be a potential collaborator, particularly in finance, health and management he added.
TAPMI is one of the three Indian institutes with an AACSB accreditation and is one of India’s top-tier business schools. TAPMI, along with Bloomberg India, launched a Rs 1 crore world-class finance lab at their campus. The students get the opportunity to gather hands-on experience in investment and portfolio management, forecasting, risk management, and global financial management through this newly established financial lab.
This MoU between TAPMI and MU thus signifies a reverse collaboration, with internationalization of education trends in India.
