Professor (Dr) C Raj Kumar - Founding Vice-Chancellor of OP Jindal Global University in India 

On Tuesday 14 June, the Vice-Chancellor and President of the University of Adelaide, Professor Peter Høj AC and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (External Engagement), Dr Jessica Gallagher, hosted a virtual signing ceremony with OP Jindal Global University (JGU), India. Managed by the International Business Development team, this is the University’s first credit-transfer agreement with one of India’s Institutes of Eminence, OP Jindal Global University. The 2+2 Credit Transfer Agreement between the respective business schools signals the start of much broader collaboration across teaching and research.

This new agreement is symbolic of the developing relationship between the University and JGU, which is a stepping stone for a long and sustainable partnership between the two institutions, including further articulations and academic-to-academic collaborations. This collaboration is further supported by the recently announced Free Trade Agreement between Australia and India, which will help unlock the full potential of the education relationship between the two countries. India’s new National Education Policy also allows greater opportunity for international collaboration, including credit transfer partnerships.
