Bangor Business School enters new partnership with Guru Nanak
Bangor University has signed an articulation agreement with Guru Nanak Institute of Management and Information Technology in India which will see Guru Nanak students being able to transfer their studies to Bangor Business School, one of the top Business Schools in Europe.
Guru Nanak has nine colleges across Northern India with a combined total of 7,200 undergraduate and postgraduate students. The colleges are also affiliated to a network of 16 secondary schools that deliver the Indian secondary school syllabus. This new agreement with Bangor University means that students who successfully complete their first year at one of the Guru Nanak colleges will be able to transfer to Bangor Business School, the UK’s top-rated School for research in Accounting, Banking and Finance.
Signing the articulation on behalf of Guru Nanak was Professor Gujral, Director of the Guru Nanak Institute of Management and Information Technology, who met with Professor Colin Baker, Pro Vice-Chancellor of Teaching and Learning at Bangor University. During his visit to Bangor, Professor Gujral also delivered seminars on Company Law and Corporate Governance to students at the University’s Law School.
Professor Gujral’s visit follows his successful first visit in June 2011, where he and Professor John Hughes, Vice-Chancellor of Bangor University, signed a Memorandum of Understanding between the two institutions. Bangor Law School will also welcome students from Guru Nanak onto the LLM programmes, and it is hoped that Bangor University will collaborate with the Foundation on a number of other programmes in the future.
