Chairman Message

Chairman Message

As Chairman of Indo American Studies [IAS] it gives me immense pleasure to welcome you here. I feel an enormous sense of privilege in being involved in education today and would like to share some of my thoughts on higher education in the context of the new global economy and community that is emerging. 

New Degrees of Learning

Founded in 1992 and presently having a nationwide network of offices, Indo-American Studies evolved and flourished to take its place at the forefront, as an innovative, academic pioneer. The task of leading this marvelous institution into the 21st century is an enormous responsibility, a challenge I eagerly, but solemnly, embrace. Our mission is to develop collaborative partnerships while recruiting scholastic students.

Nearly 1.5 billion students and youth are affected due to the closure of Universities and travel ban due to Covid 19. Around 4% of the student population suffered due to school closure,40 million learners out of school and 8 countries affected by school closure, as a part of education leadership we have a great responsibility to do our best in supporting the cause. In the above situation, we are pledging universities and organizations to give support to the students, free tools, and support services for educational opportunities.

Transforming Education

Many institutions of higher learning are remodeling themselves post-pandemic to enhance their relevance as knowledge organizations in an innovation-driven global economy. At IAS our vision is to become a global knowledge enterprise that builds synergies between education, research, and entrepreneurship. To attain this vision, we aim to inculcate a global mindset and foster a spirit of entrepreneurship among our community of professors, students, and alumni. In a global environment where traditional competitive advantages have shifted, companies face the pressure to reposition themselves, restructure, outsource non-core operations or face imminent collapse. Other companies ride on the opportunities thrown up by globalization, by creating a new environment by bringing top global faculty to our partner universities. And when they do, they scout for talents globally. The new reality for prospective employees looking to work with multi-national companies is this: In the global marketplace, companies are looking for people with a global mindset and adaptability to work in global environments, employees who can lead or work with a multicultural workforce, and yet understand local operating conditions.

IAS Campus – With Tech Edge

A Campus with The Tech Edge we are in the process of setting up a world-class institution of higher learning incorporating state of the art technology. On completion, it will be a center of academic excellence offering globally relevant and technology driven programs. However, we have to build on our strengths in education if we are to take a vibrant country like India upstream. We are retaining the fundamental advantages of a competitive, national system of education while seeking to create new strengths. We are creating a more flexible system and providing more choice to the individual student, so as to encourage him or her to find their own talents and interests and to develop them to the fullest. We intend to offer industry-specific and globally relevant programs such as Business Administration, Engineering, and Computer Sciences at both Bachelors and Masters Level.

 It is my profound belief, that as educators, we must do a better job of cultivating the interests and aptitudes of our students in mathematics and the sciences at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Indeed, given the current global environment, every institution of higher education must better prepare its students to face a host of cultural, moral and ethical, intellectual, and other challenges as we strive to adapt to the new realities of our world. Higher education must instill in students a set of values appropriate to our international community. We must cultivate character, character built on a moral and spiritual awareness of, and appreciation for, others — a capacity for love and respect for all people of all backgrounds. I believe the function of the university is not simply to teach breadwinning, to furnish faculty to students, or to be a center of polite society. It is, above all, to be the organ of that fine adjustment between real life and the growing knowledge of life, an adjustment that forms the secret of civilization.

The main campus is envisioned to have teaching facilities, lecture halls, workshops, and world-class accommodation along with centralized services with Computer Services Unit, Educational and Staff Development Unit, Digital Library, Student Advisory Services, Administrative Offices, etc. These facilities are supported by ‘always-on’ IT infrastructure. Students will benefit from an extensive range of sophisticated resources, which will be continually updated including:

-Well-equipped classrooms with state-of-the-art infrastructure facilities such as Video-Conferencing, LCD monitors, Desktop Systems, Broadband Internet connections, etc.

 -Computer laboratories with advanced software for word-processing, spreadsheets, databases, CAD/CAM, mathematical applications, and programming languages.

-Well-stocked library with more than 50,000 volumes of books and accredited journals, online Reference sources including CD-ROMs, and Internet services.

Bio-Technology Wave

There is no doubt that the 21st century will be the century of life sciences. Many scientists and economic analysts, therefore, regard Biotechnology as one of the key technologies for the next few decades. It is a fortunate and exciting coincidence that Biotechnology and Bioinformatics are developing at an unprecedented rate. Now that the genomic blueprint of life has been almost completed, many more opportunities will arise for the life sciences. Globalization has brought about new opportunities, new markets and new education streams fostering competition and international partnerships. This is an opportunity we must seize. As Martin Luther King Jr. pointed out: “We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character — that is the goal of true education.”

 I feel confident in our ability to meet these and other challenges that will be certain to appear. Our highly dedicated and committed team of faculty and academicians are all set to achieve excellence in their field of education. I am honored to be the leader of this team and look forward to the opportunities and challenges ahead.

 I hope and trust that this website will help you in finding answers to many of your questions about higher studies abroad. I encourage you to contact us should you need any further assistance. This is our challenge.

This is our goal. This is our commitment
