Preparing global citizens
The entire student community faces uncertainty about the future – seeking quality higher education opportunities and being concerned about their future job prospects – due to the ongoing pandemic that has severely impacted all sections of our society. However, under MIT-WPU’s new path-breaking initiative, students can imbibe the best of global education, where thought leaders from across the globe share varied perspectives and contribute to enriching knowledge exchange. Further, through this initiative, students get the opportunity to graduate with international exposure in the current situation that positions them to embark on global opportunities with promising career prospects.
Most importantly, no higher fees or additional costs are charged to students to avail this opportunity and the policy will be implemented across all the programs offered by the university wherein 25% syllabus of each program will be taught by a global expert or thought leader. The plan will be rolled out in phases with the expected timeline of the first session to be as early as August 9, 2021.
