FLAME University is committed to enhancing the educational experience of students by encouraging and providing them with opportunities to operate in multilingual and multicultural settings at an international level. This exposure adds value to the students by diversifying their learning experience; enhances their employability by having demonstrable experience of living and learning in a culture which is different from their own. Studying in a new educational setting helps them to hone their extant skills and develop new ones.
The study abroad programs undertaken by FLAME University are aimed at providing students and faculty a global perspective on education and research, and prepare them for leadership and service in an interconnected globalized world. The international relations initiative at FLAME University essentially has the makings of a mutually beneficial relationship between the faculty and students of both.
Through rigorous and collaborative programs, the Office of International Relations helps faculty and students build and strengthen the range of collaborative activities with institutions abroad. FLAME University has tie-ups with Wellesley College, Yale University, Kelley School of Business, Indiana University Bloomington, Babson Collaborative (Babson Build), Boston University (MET International) in the USA, York University, King's University College, and Quest University in Canada, IESEG School of Management In France and DHBW in Germany for undergraduate students.
Each year FLAME University is pushing its internationalization efforts to build and strengthen collaborations with revered universities across the globe with the aim of providing the best platform to interested and deserving students. Such programs help students learn from a global perspective and make them more tolerant to different cultures and views. It also gives them confidence to go out and use this experience during their professional careers while dealing with global clients. These study abroad programs are a part of FLAME University’s goals to prepare students who have a strong desire to learn and grow continually, welcome new ideas, value diversity and give their best towards excellence in all spheres of life.
