Carleton President Signs MOUs with India Partners While Accepting International Award

Carleton University's Canada-India Centre for Excellence (CICE) is partnering with three Indian institutions to deliver business and cultural programming that will offer Canadians the skills and knowledge required to work in India and foster stronger innovation and trade connections between the two countries.
Carleton is partnering with the Bombay Stock Exchange Institute (BSEI) to offer two new certificate programs - on the Indian business innovation system and Indian investment opportunities - through the CICE.

The partnership with the BSEI, a fully owned subsidiary of the Bombay Stock Exchange, will provide Canadians with access to critical professional and academic training.
Carleton has also signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the International School of Management Excellence (ISME) to help the institutions explore new opportunities for academic and research collaborations in the business and management fields.

The ISME is one of the top business schools in the state of Karnataka and is located in India's "innovation hub," Bengaluru.
Education and skills development have been identified as key priority areas by the two national governments, and Carleton is pleased to help the Government of Canada implement its agenda for India.

Roseann O'Reilly Runte Receives International Award

Carleton President and Vice-Chancellor Roseann O'Reilly Runte formalized these two partnerships while in India to receive an award from World Education Congress, which recognized her as one of the world's 100 most influential vice-chancellors at its annual conference in Mumbai.
The vice-chancellors list recognizes qualities such as strategic perspective, integrity and ethics, and sustainable education. An independent jury comprised of academics, researchers and business leaders selects recipients.

"It is always a privilege to represent Carleton and to advance our global agenda," said Dr. Runte. "Working for the greater good of society is a significant part of our strategic plan and it is good that our work in establishing new programs that meet the social, economic and health needs of society is being recognized at this forum."
The week before attending the World Education Congress on June 23 and 24, Dr. Runte signed an MOU with the High Commissioner of India to Canada, H.E Vishnu Prakash, to renew Carleton's visiting India Chair in the field of Humanities and Social Sciences focused on India-related studies.
