International Academic Alliances
BMU has collaborated with some of the best global universities - Imperial College London, London School of Economics & Political Science, University of Warwick and UC, Berkeley. The collaborations ensure that students get the best learning experience which is modern, experiential and truly global. These universities provide assistance in a wide spectrum of activities which include:
Development of Curriculum and Programme Structure
The curriculum is ‘globalized’ to ensure that the students get the best education which is internationally relevant and makes them future-ready.
These international collaborations enhance our research capabilities, encouraging students to engage in research as a potent form of learning by doing.
BMU students have the unique opportunity to study courses at our partner universities, giving them a unique first-hand experience in the global education environment
Guest faculty from partner universities
Top-notch faculty from these universities take subjects at BMU, enriching students by bringing in additional perspectives to research and academics
Specialized programmes run in association with these world-class universities ensure holistic developments of students in a global environment.
Imperial College London
Imperial College London is playing a mentoring role in the formation and operation of the School of Management and School of Commerce. It will also be the academic mentor for the School of Engineering & Technology.
Imperial College London is closely involved in a wide spectrum of activities such as curriculum design, content development, student exchanges, summer study programmes, joint research activities, digital learning platforms, PhD programmes, faculty training, educational outreach and executive education programmes.
Most significantly, 25 BMU engineering students will have the opportunity to undertake a one-year MSc programme at Imperial College London Business School. Additionally, all students (BTech, BCom (Hons), BBA & MBA) will have the opportunity to join innovation camps and credit-based courses, which will include activities such as lectures, site visits, workshops, or say, writing a business plan.
Institute of Inclusive Innovation
BMU and Imperial College London are the joint founders of the Institute of Inclusive Innovation (I3), an applied research institute. Located on the BMU campus, I3 aspires to transform society by undertaking research at the grassroots level and seeking solutions that promise high impact inclusive growth and development.
Students will get an opportunity to work on live projects in the institute’s areas of focus that includes health, energy, water, education, urban development and economic empowerment, thereby getting invaluable experience in understanding and tackling critical social problems of the day
BMU is creating an enabling environment for a sustainable industry-academia partnership. The objectives being to bridge the gap between industry needs and available skills, expose faculty to latest industry trends and practices, and most significantly, help students pick up industry-relevant skills and knowledge, thereby improving their employability prospects.
BMU is leveraging an ecosystem around a large and diverse set of industries and corporate organizations. BMU has inked an alliance with Siemens; and more partnerships with leading organizations are in the pipeline. This ecosystem will benefit students as they will get exposure to real industry working. Besides application-oriented education, structured learning opportunities at industry locations are embedded in the DNA of BMU. BMU is working closely with industry on curriculum design, learning tools and educational technology. Guest speakers and visiting faculty from industry will give lectures on campus and conduct technology specific webinars, seminars and workshops.
Students will undertake site visits at industry locations and enroll for internship school courses throughout the duration of their programme. The internship will be supervised by BMU faculty and an industry mentor. This internship would be taken as a course credit and the grade so earned will count towards the cumulative GPA. Also, senior industry experts would participate in the faculty selection and recruitment process; and faculty training and development programmes.
Centres of Excellence
Industry partners will also be establishing Centres of Excellence on campus so that an empowering teaching-learning environment is created for students and faculty alike. The critical components of this eco system will be the latest technology platforms, real-life projects, collaborative learning, team work, hands-on learning and leadership development. The first such centre is being set up by Siemens PLM Software.

This experience will help them bridge the gaps between theory and practice, and classroom and the workplace.
