The India Gateway will receive operating funds for the first three years from a consortium of some of Ohio State’s colleges and vice presidential units interested in increasing its collaborations in India. Additional funding has been secured through a donation from the Central Ohio Association of Physicians of Indian Origin, and office space has been donated by an Ohio State alumnus.
“With the India Gateway we continue to open doors to create new partnerships for faculty teaching and research, increase international experiences for our students and contribute to Ohio’s economy by sharing our expertise with Ohio-based business and multinationals operating internationally,” said William I. Brustein, Vice Provost for Global Strategies and International Affairs. “The Gateways enable Ohio State to advance our international mission and collaborate with the university’s stakeholders worldwide.”
Plans for the India Gateway include developing executive education training programs and implementing a corporate partnership program to generate additional operating revenue.
The executive education training programs will be implemented in conjunction with Ohio State academic units. Ohio State will market education programs to businesses in India based on its expertise in a variety of fields and the needs of corporations. Ohio State colleges will develop curriculum and delivery of the programs and the India Gateway will provide logistical support and facilitation in-country.
The international partnership program is comprised of a tiered level of services provided to corporations based on their contribution of intellectual and financial resources to the Gateway operations. Services offered to the corporations will include workforce development and education (career, consultation and research). The India Gateway will help facilitate securing workforce talent for corporations through internships, access to career fairs and locating candidates for full-time professional positions. Specialized dual-degree programs also will be initiated with top level Indian universities to prepare Ohio State graduates with region specific expertise and professional practices. Additionally, consultation and research services will be available to corporate partners, which will give them access to a team of graduate students and/or faculty to provide detailed analysis, findings and innovative solutions.
The Global Gateways are a way for Ohio State to expand its knowledge and expertise in strategic regions of the world. Based on the university’s academic strengths and growing international connections, Ohio State is also exploring opening Gateway offices in Brazil, Turkey, sub-Saharan Africa and Europe.
