Indian biz students, faculty get to know NJCU and area

The 54 students and faculty members from India’s H.R. College of Commerce and Economics packed as much as they could into a whirlwind 10-day trip to the United States.
As they wrapped up their visit last week, the Indian students toured Ellis Island, attended Broadway plays, visited the New York Stock Exchange and performed in a “Bollywood” dance show to thank their hosts at New Jersey City University.
But the trip was more than just a cultural exchange between the Jersey City public university and the Mumbai-based business college. Both schools hope the visit is the start of a deeper partnership that will allow the institutions — located 7,800 miles apart — to share resources and study abroad programs.
“I strongly believe the world is becoming a global village and we should go beyond borders,” said Indu Shahani, head of the 7,000-student H.R. College. “We have to produce global citizens.”
New Jersey City University is among several U.S. colleges looking to build partnerships to tap into India’s burgeoning higher education market.
