MYSORE: The SDM Institute for Management Development (SDM-IMD), Mysore, has signed an agreement with Mays Business School, Texas A&M University, for a student and faculty exchange programme.

A press release issued here on Wednesday said that four students from SDM-IMD would get an opportunity to spend a semester and attend courses in Mays Business School.

An equal number of students from Mays would be invited to study a semester in SDM-IMD. “Our association with such globally recognised institutes will give our students a wider perspective to business management which is important for their growth,” said Ramesh Venkateswaran of SDM-IMD.

As an alternative, the agreement also envisions undergraduate students from Mays attending a five-week summer programme focused on conducting business in India, at SDM-IMD during May and June.

The release said that the programme would also encourage institutions to promote exchange of faculty for teaching and collaborative research programmes.
