This initiative is the kind of university-business venture which I discuss in my SAGE Handbook chapter on “Employer Perspectives on International Education” http://www.marketwatch.com/story/wipro-to-launch-india-gateway-internship-2012-05-17
This one-year UK-India collaborative training program will involve a three-month rigorous technology induction course followed by a six month on-the-job training with Wipro teams. In the last three months, the students will work with live project teams. The course — a mix of classroom and practical training — is aimed at making students employable anywhere on the globe.
What student would not want this experience as a gateway to entering the global workforce?
