The Vedica Scholars Programme for Women is delighted to announce its partnership with Leicester Castle Business School (LCBS) at De Montfort University (DMU). The partnership aims to create a new vocabulary for 21st century business professionals, and equip students to achieve careers of distinction. Both Vedica and LCBS focus on redefining conventional curricula to prepare students for the workplace through a journey of transformation, critical thinking, personal growth and supportive mentorship.
“Our partnership will enrich the lives of students at Vedica and LCBS. The opportunity for international exchange, to shadow a woman CEO, and to participate in executive company projects in both countries are only some of the benefits to both communities. But above all, it is our shared vision and commitment to create professionals befitting the 21st century – with its nuances, complexities and demands on young people – that makes this partnership special and exciting”, says Anuradha Das Mathur, Founding Dean of Vedica Scholars Programme for Women & Yale Greenberg Fellow 2016. Vedica is an 18-month, postgraduate management programme with a reimagined curriculum carefully crafted to the expectations of the employers today.
“Our partnership derives from a shared vision on the future of management education. Both Vedica and LCBS are revolutionising management education, encouraging our students to take a critical perspective on the purpose of business and leadership in the 21st century, and developing students as individuals poised and ready to make a difference in their careers”, says Dr Dana Brown, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Enterprise & Principal, Leicester Castle Business School. Dr Brown is the former Director of the MBA at Said Business School, Oxford University. She has taught executive education and MBA courses at Oxford, EMLYON, IE Business School and the American University in Cairo.
Leicester Castle Business School (LCBS) offers a unique learning environment where students are encouraged to challenge convention and are given the opportunities and tools to think, create and inspire. Founded in 1870, De Monfort University was ranked in the top 3% of 18,000 world universities in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-16. With 155 international partnerships, it has students from more than 135 countries. DMU’s Global MBA and Global Leadership & Management BSc courses are both dual accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).
Through this partnership, Vedica Scholars get an opportunity to join the Global MBA and other specialisations such as Global Banking & Finance, Sustainable Business MBA, Intercultural Business Communication to name a few, at the Leicester Castle Business School after completing 18 months of instruction at Vedica. They get a chance to attend one teaching term at the LCBS campus and one term in India for an Executive Company Project. Every admitted Scholar is awarded a Vedica-LCBS Bursary to pursue this unique opportunity.
Under this joint initiative between Vedica and Leicester Castle Business School, women students from DMU will be given the option to participate in Vedica’s Shadow a Woman CEO Programme – a compelling one-month module that exposes Vedica Scholars to a successful, senior, professional woman. Last year’s Shadow programme saw the participation of organisations such as Microsoft, Genpact, American Express and Cipla. The partnership will also launch visiting faculty and mentor exchange programmes which will enable teaching and research exchange between Vedica and LCBS.
