Pace University and JGU to offer dual degree programmes in law, business from 2024

Pace University, New York, and JGU have established collaborations to offer dual degree courses and other student and teacher exchange programmes. Initially, the two universities will start dual degree masters courses in law and business from 2024.

A delegation from Pace University led by its President, Professor Marvin Krislov, visited JGU in November to foster long-term collaborations and partnerships across various academic disciplines. The visit was aimed to expand collaboration into new areas, including psychology, social sciences, finance, and public health.

The visit witnessed establishment of partnerships between Jindal Global Law School and Jindal Global Business School (JGBS) with the Elisabeth Haub School of Law and Lubin School of Business, respectively. These partnerships encompass initiatives such as student exchange programmes and dual degree programmes.

Founding Vice Chancellor of O.P. Jindal Global University, Prof. (Dr.) C. Raj Kumar said, “Partnerships between institutions go beyond state-level diplomatic and strategic relationships and they shape the future of the relationship.”

Professor Marvin Krislov, President, Pace University said, “The US colleges teach students to engage productively with a wider world, how to exist in the adult world. There is a key difference in the demography of India and the US as India has a very large section of the population in the 18-22-year group. There is also a greater desire for higher education and graduate degrees. Access to higher education leads to more economic benefits. We call our educational model the Pace Path: a powerful combination of academic instruction and hands-on experiential learning that sets our students up for success immediately upon graduation.”

One of the key highlights of the visit was the signing of the Semester Abroad Agreement between JGBS, Jindal School of Banking & Finance (JSBF), and the Lubin School of Business at Pace University. Under the Semester Abroad Agreement, students from JGBS and JSBF will have the chance to immerse themselves in the dynamic academic environment of the Lubin School of Business. This international exposure will provide them with invaluable and enriching cross-cultural learning experiences, gaining access to expert faculty members at Pace University.
