A Message from the Director General (Vice-Chancellor) of Ganpat University

I participated in an official delegation to sign a renewed academic cooperation agreement with Victoria University in Melbourne on 31 May 2017, led by Ganpat University Patron- in- Chief Shri Ganpatbhai Patel, and President Shri Anilbhai T. Patel. We are delighted to see the expansion of our earlier cooperation, which started in 2010 with a pilot collaborative award in Enterprise Resource Planning Systems. The students who completed that program have launched successful careers in India and globally. This international partnership attests to Ganpat University’s mission to focus on academic excellence and industrial relevance in education and research.

History of collaboration in education

Victoria University and Education Centre of Australia have enjoyed a strong history of global collaboration delivering education programs in India. In 2010, ECA partnered with VU and Ganpat University to establish the first VU India centre. Through this partnership, it was the first time an Australian university program (Master of Business in Enterprise Resource Planning Systems) had been offered in India. All of the graduates who successfully completed this course have since gained employment, with over 80% currently working abroad.
