The Ohio State University opened a Gateway office in Mumbai, India in March 2012 to advance its teaching, research and engagement mission and enhance its global reach. The Ohio State India Gateway serves as a catalyst to enhance our faculty’s research and teaching interests; increase partnerships with international institutions and Ohio-based businesses abroad; attract international students; provide new study abroad opportunities; and reconnect with alumni. The India Gateway is Ohio State’s second office in another country, and is in an area of the world that capitalizes on the strengths of the university’s growing global connections.
The India Gateway serves as a hub for the university's corporate partnership program, identifying and matching students to internships, partnering with international universities to create specialized dual degree programs and promoting innovation in education, research, consultation, staffing and recruitment.
The Gateway also serves as a location to host information sessions for students from India who want to learn more about the academic opportunities at Ohio State and is a point of contact for our strong base of alumni to gather informally and strengthen their connections to the university.
