New Delhi, Nov 11 (IANS) Students who have pursued MBA from Sikkim Manipal University will now be eligible to get an additional MBA degree from Edinburgh Napier University in Scotland.
The two varsities signed an MoU Friday.
“This MoU will be path breaking as we are targeting the 600,000 alumni of Sikkim Manipal University who are eligible for this course,” Edinburgh Napier University principal and vice chancellor Dame Joan Stringer told IANS.
According to Stringer, the students can chose between an online course or a campus course. While the regular MBA in the campus costs around 12,000 pounds, it will cost 4,000 pounds to the alumni of Sikkim Manipal University.
Those choosing an online course will have to pay 2,600 pounds only.
“The MoU will promote knowledge sharing, reflecting the deep interest and commitment towards building a strong educational foundation for higher education fraternity at large,” Sikkim Manipal University vice chancellor Somnath Mishra said.
Scottish Education Secretary Michael Russell said the MoU boasts India-Scotland ties in the field of education.
