|Prof. Jagdish Sheth, humility personified.|
This time he spoke on how to build and nurture great global Universities .. I was fortunate enough to listen to him .. Building a world-class University ..
5. Top Universities have great global diversity, they tend to have good number of foreign students
6. these universities also have a strong and loyal alumni
7. they also have strong world class library with world class infrastructure
8. they believe in creating a brand through differentiation ..
The plateauing of institutions and individuals is a great negative point which hampers the growth of both.
The University needs to do more value add, not just have great students !! ( IITs in India get great students, but do we do great value add for these brilliant students, that they finally run away to other great universities..)
Finally, the university needs to move with a strategic intent, to take the university to world stage and try everything in one's quiver to accomplish this...
