The main objective of this week is to provide a global environment to keep Chitkara University students informed about the dynamics of International education and to raise their global awareness. All the students cannot go overseas for studies considering higher costs involved, so we bring International faculty to Chitkara University to give them a flavor of Internationalization. Our students experienced stimulating interactive sessions with visiting Professors from its partner Universities from around the World. They also gained competence towards becoming global learners as they witnessed unprecedented pedagogical styles during the five days of their participation in the programme.
Eminent and globally renowned professors from United Kingdom, Philippines, Mexico, Bangladesh and Malaysia visited the campus and taught students through different modules of about 20 hours each. All the courses taught by the International Faculty are considered not only useful but also in demand by the prospective placement companies. This programme was focused to improve the students’ individual performances and academic achievements to enable them to be globally accepted and recognized with outcomes that match their aspirations and with their ambitions in a globally competitive environment.
With this Global Week another success story was scribed on the sands of time by Chitkara University under the stewardship of Prof. Sangeet Jaura, Associate Vice President, Office of International Affairs.
