Four MOUs were signed with universities and institutes as part of our initiative to forge strategic alliances-

1.      MOU with [Vinod Gupta School of Management (VGSoM)], IIT Kharagpur  - Partnership covers areas such as curriculum development, the exchange of DFL expertise, training of USP staff, and live delivery of VGSoM courses;

2.      MOU with Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), Delhi- This partnership covers staff exchange, DFL capacity building, and course development.A Licensing Agreement was also signed, which allows USP to purchase and use IGNOU courses, beginning with the immediate purchase of 8 courses for the USP Masterís in Education programme;

3.      MOU with [Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC)], Delhi University- This partnership includes student and staff exchange, curriculum development, joint research, and the facilitation of postgraduate recruitment for USP; and

4.      MOU with Institute of Economic Growth (IEG), Delhi- This partnership includes faculty exchange, joint research, and assistance to USP in the area of economic modeling.
