Kozhikode, 16th July, 2012: The U.S. Consul General Ms. Jennifer McInTyre along with the Visa Officer, Programme Officer, Public Relations Officer and the Regional Officer of the US – India Educational Foundation visited the IIM Kozhikode on 16 July 2012. Ms. Jennifer led the delegation and held extensive discussions with Prof. Debashis Chatterjee, the Director of IIM Kozhikode, on possible collaborations in its development agenda and towards academic support.
The delegation also met the faculty of the Institute and discussed about the various programmes, services and the range of activities that the Fulbright-Nehru Foundation and the U.S. Government have been offering to the Indian citizenry. The visit assumes significance at a time when the US-India Educational Foundation, the Fulbright Commission in India, has just announced the fellowship competitions open to Indian citizens for 2013-2014. Ms. Jennifer, during the discussions, has ensured that educational sector in Kerala will be getting a great share of support from the Consulate and the US Government in the wake of the Singh-Obama Knowledge Initiative which was signed between the heads of Governments of both the USA and India, in 2010.
Speaking on the occasion, IIMK Director Prof. Debashis Chatterjee stated “Our collaboration with the US-India Educational Foundation and the Consulate’s services will foster excellence and lend cross cultural perspectives to the academic pursuits. We are also hoping that IIM Kozhikode’s new creation the Indian Business Museum, will be a hub of knowledge for US academics who would like to understand the history and evolution of business of India.” The delegation also visited the Indian Business Museum at IIMK and Ms. Jennifer McInTyre, while giving her remarks on the digital idea wall, lauded the Institute for the brilliant work done by creating the Indian Business Museum.
