India and Canada collaborate on multiple fronts, including post-secondary education and business. Canadian universities have been attracting international students from India year after year, and India represents an interesting and yet untapped market for Canadian businesses.
On March 6th, the Telfer School of Management, in collaboration with the Indo-Canadian Ottawa Business Chamber (ICOBC), will host an event on Indo-Canadian collaborative opportunities in business and educational sectors. This event aims to bring together students, academics and local business leaders to learn how collaboration with India may benefit them.
This networking opportunity for academics, students and local business leaders from the Indo-Canadian community will highlight the opportunities for collaboration in academics and research between the Telfer School of Management and Indian institutions and will promote entrepreneurial activities and business relations.
François Julien, Dean of the Telfer School of Management, will begin the speeches with an opening address. The Honourable Mr. Arun Sahu, Acting High Commissioner of India, and Mr. Marvin Hough, Executive in Residence at the Telfer School of Management, will address macro perspectives of Indo-Canadian collaboration. Wojtek Michalowski, Vice Dean (Research) at the Telfer School of Management, will cover research collaboration, and Greg Richards, MBA Director at the Telfer School of Management, will cover student exchange opportunities.
