The Management Development Institute (MDI), Gurgaon, one of the top Business schools in India, is all set to start its new campus in Murshidabad from July.

MDI Gurgaon Director Mukul P Gupta, while opening a three-day global conference starting Wednesday, said the new campus will attract students from neighbouring countries such as Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Myanmar.

"We are working on various programmes, which we are going to offer at our new campus. We have recruited eight professors and the academic session will start in this July." He added that the B-school will be tying up with universities in Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Singapore for special courses and programmes.

Talking about the three-day global conference on 'Managing in Recovering Markets', Gupta said the B-school plans to hold four international conferences every year for the next three years, which will focus on various business models.

"This conference is an initiative to address the global issues where delegates from Australia, Europe and North America will be present. The conference is a curtain raiser event to identify the required areas of development and research to manage the recovering cross-country markets," Gupta said.

He added that this time, experts from Australia, France, Slovenia and Japan will be participating in the event.

"This conference aims to build knowledge for the stakeholders in the global business environment. It will have multiple spinoffs and we might start a programme on the same subject depending on the response we get at the end of these conferences," Gupta said.

The next global conference will be held in Australia.
