York University is heading east in a big way. According to The Economist, York will build its own campus in India and offer an MBA. This should not come as a surprise since the Indian government announced a couple of months earlier a change in policy that would facilitate foreign universities to open campuses in India, which is after all world’s largest English speaking market for higher education.
Canada’s Schulich Business School is planning to build an Indian campus. Although many business schools offer programmes in India, the move is unusual because it is rare for a respected Western institution to set up its own campus—most prefer to partner with Indian schools or to hire smaller offices. Schulich plans to offer an MBA and executive programmes.
