According to a press release by the MIT World Peace University, the MoU was formalized during the “R.I.D.E” conclave, a 5-day event centered around Research, Innovation, Design, and Entrepreneurship, which took place at the university’s Kothrud Campus.
“The MOU encourages cooperation and interaction between respective staff, including inter-institutional visits, faculty exchange, academic publications, research and educational collaboration, and Faculty Development Programmes (FDP) in the areas of common interest among many other things,” said Dr R M Chitnis, Vice Chancellor, MIT-WPU.
“Today ICAI and MIT-WPU are coming together for the cause of students, knowledge, research, innovation and entrepreneurship. The Chartered Accountancy course is not only for commerce students but for all the streams. Corporates like L&T, Unilever, Birla Group and many more prefer Chartered Accountants at their top positions. This qualification makes you employable enough that you are never left jobless once you qualify. ICAI has started the largest Digital Learning Hub which is free of cost. I welcome all the students to take benefit of this facility. This MOU will write a new chapter in the histories of ICAI and MITWPU,” said CA C V Chitale, Central Council Member, The ICAI.
