International Collaborations

O.P. Jindal Global (Institution of Eminence Deemed to Be University) has a global network of relationships that serve to generate collaboration, reciprocity, and exchange required by any outstanding international research and teaching institution. As a QS ranked university granted Institution of Eminence status, international teaching and research is a priority for the Jindal Global University. The university has a rich history of leveraging sustainable and collaborative partnerships to fulfil its mission of transforming education along with providing social and public service.

The Jindal School of Art and Architecture (JSAA) facilitates cross-campus opportunities for global engagement and international experiences. Internationalization is integral to the JSAA’s research, teaching and learning. Our strong focus on supporting global research, curriculum and educational opportunities helps students and faculty develop and champion diverse cultural perspectives. JSAA believes that the best way to understand and contribute to our globalized world is to experience other places and cultures first-hand.

Students who participate in study abroad programs gain exposure to foreign cultures in a way that cannot be accomplished in a classroom or on vacation. These acquired skills and new perspectives make students more competitive in future career searches. Students can gain intercultural competency skills and develop confidence and independence. Choosing a study abroad program that allows students to complete courses relevant to the student’s major enables them to not only experience personal growth but professional growth as well.
