Sciences Po and India
Sciences Po opened its office in Delhi in 2007, and has since been attracting the best Indian students, developing partnerships with the most influential universities and collaborating with many organizations in the public and private sectors.
These collaborations include student and faculty mobility programmes, joint research and teaching programmes, and continuing education programmes for senior executives and civil servants. The Sciences Po team in India also supports graduates in their job search and offers internship opportunities with many organizations.
In the near future, Sciences Po aims to create new scholarships for Indian students and increase its capacity to finance joint projects with organisations in India. New partnerships are being planned in India and abroad to support these developments, which are spearheaded by the Sciences Po delegations in Delhi and Mumbai.
