NEW DELHI: O. P. Jindal Global University has established the Jindal School of International Affairs (JSIA), “India's first Global Policy School”.
It is aimed at enhancing Indian and international capacities of analysing and solving world problems and strengthening the intellectual basis for planning India's march to great power status as a responsible member of the international community.
The first academic year of the new school, located on the Jindal Global University campus at Sonepat in Haryana, will begin in August 2011 with an inter-disciplinary degree programme called Master of Arts in Diplomacy, Law and Business.
The programme combines knowledge from the interrelated disciplines of International Relations, International Law and International Business Studies.
The new school is built upon the core strengths of the two existing schools of the University – the Jindal Global Law School and the Jindal Global Business School.
Dr. Sreeram Sundar Chaulia has been appointed the first Vice Dean of the school. Its board of international advisers includes eminent experts from Harvard, MIT, Princeton and other prestigious universities.
The school has been launched through a strategic partnership with the United Nations University's Institute for Sustainability and Peace. According to Prof. C. Raj Kumar, Vice-Chancellor of O. P. Jindal Global University,
“The establishment of the school and the appointment of an outstanding scholar in international relations, Dr. Sreeram Sundar Chaulia, as its first Vice Dean demonstrate the University's sincere commitment to the study of international affairs at a time when globalisation has profound implications for the future of all nations and people.”
