Indian School of Business’s Bharti Institute of Public Policy (Bharti Institute) renewed its partnership with The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, in Medford, Massachusetts, US, through a new five-year agreement of cooperation.

The initial agreement between the two institutions was entered in 2010. Bharti Institute and The Fletcher School have recommitted to growing their partnership on public policy through a renewed agreement of cooperation to extend their relationship until 2027.

The agreement of cooperation was exchanged between Professor Madan Pillutla, Dean of the Indian School of Business, and Rachel Kyte, Dean of The Fletcher School, at the Hyderabad campus of the Indian School of Business.  

Rules of engagement

Potential activities to meet the partnership goals include the exchange of faculty and students, the organisation of joint conferences and public events, the creation and delivery of training programmes, and the pursuit of joint research by faculty and students at both institutions.

Prof Madan Pillutla, said, “The Fletcher School’s guidance and support have enabled us to usher in new paradigms in management and policy education. We are sure that today’s agreement will further consolidate our partnership with The Fletcher School and pave way for newer engagements in research and education.”

Dean Rachel Kyte, said, “The Fletcher School’s partnership with the Bharti Institute of Public Policy at the Indian School of Business is among Fletcher’s oldest and most important connections to India. With the maturity of the Bharti Institute, I look forward to Bharti and Fletcher expanding its cooperative programming at a time when India is vital to creating solutions that address many of the world’s most pressing problems.”
