The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), owner of the GMAT exam and NMAT by GMAC exam, has partnered with nine leading Indian B-schools to launch the Study in India initiative.

This partnership will open doors for international aspirants across 27 countries to pursue management education in India, and arose from the Ministry of Human Resource Development's directive to rebuild India's attractiveness as a study destination for higher education in Africa, Middle East, South and East Asia.
The nine business schools associated with the Study in India initiative are:

Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA)

Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB)

Indian School of Business (ISB)

Indian Institute of Management Indore (IIM Indore)

Xavier University Bhubaneswar (XUB)

SP Jain Institute of Management & Research (SPJIMR)

Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS)

Great Lakes Institute of Management (GLIM)

IMT Ghaziabad

Study in India is expected to build and strengthen preference for Indian B-schools in relevant international markets. Aspirants from these 27 countries can now log on to the Study in India website, www.mba.com/studyinindia, and will have the option to secure admission in any of the nine partner B-schools in India using their GMAT scores.

Commenting on the launch, Sangeet Chowfla, president and CEO of GMAC said, "India has all the elements of becoming a global education hub because it has the unique advantage of providing world class, high quality education at affordable prices. Students across these emerging markets will now have access to some of these top business schools, which are globally accredited, have superior infrastructure, faculty and curriculum. Study in India intends to connect international talent and aspiration with the right opportunity on India's B-school campuses. We are positive that the Study in India initiative will assist business schools in creating a larger and much diverse international talent pool, while offering students a high-impact learning experience."

This initiative also holds strategic promise for Indian management education; a rise in enrollment may lead to an increase in student diversity at these institutions, enhancing the overall classroom experience for students.

Meghshala Launches Education App

Meghshala Launches Education App

Social education start-up Meghshala Trust, supported by Tata Trusts, has launched the Meghshala (meaning ‘school on the cloud’) offline mobile app on Google Play Store for the Android platform.

The app is the latest in Meghshala’s efforts to transform the government education system. The app empowers teachers with the necessary tools and resources to create classroom learning experiences that are engaging and interactive.

It is preloaded with over 2,500 of Meghashala’s ‘TeachKits’, aligned to the Karnataka State curriculum for Science, Math, English and Social Studies.

The Teachkits, which are a part of the app, contain multimedia lessons divided into two primary components – student slides and teacher instructions. The student slides include images, videos, text and questions that students can directly engage with.

The teacher instruction slides are visible only to teachers, and provide detailed support to implement the lesson. This includes suggestions on how to conduct each part of the lesson, the rationale for certain pedagogic practices, and additional information that can be used to enhance the lesson.

Owing to low-connectivity and an audience that wasn’t very proficient with technology, the offline app was initially loaded manually onto tablet computers. As a result, its reach was limited to 650 teachers in 200 government schools spread across nine districts of Karnataka. Meghshala, however, aims to empower 100,000 teachers by the year 2020.

Jyoti Thyagarajan, founder and trustee of Meghshala, said with the increasing penetration of smart phones, the app could be downloaded on the smart phones for free and is easy for teachers to use in their classrooms. Ullas Kumar, vice-president-Education Operations of Meghshala, said the content can be filtered based on the subject, class, lesson, and titles. There are over 2,500 lessons available on the app.

Goldman Sachs provides $75,000 funding to Educate Girls

Non-profit organisation Educate Girls has received a grant of USD 75,000 (about Rs 48.26 lakh) from leading global brokerage firm Goldman Sachs.

Educate Girls secured the funding as a team of analysts from the Bengaluru office of Goldman Sachs came at the second place in the "2017 Goldman Sachs Gives Global Analyst Impact Fund" competition.

The first place went to Kiron Open Higher Education, which is a Berlin-based non-profit which connects refugees to content, mentoring, and accreditation needed to achieve higher education.

The annual Analyst Impact Fund is an initiative that provides Goldman Sachs employees with the opportunity to collaborate with peers from across global offices to win a grant for a non-profit organisation of their choice and impact the communities where they live and work.

The funding comes from Goldman Sachs Gives, a donor- advised fund through which the investment bank and its current and retired senior employees provide grants to qualifying non- profit organisations globally.

Educate Girls is a Mumbai-based non-profit organisation that works towards improving enrolment, retention and learning outcomes for girls in some of the most rural and marginalised communities in India.
