The Global Connect initiative at FLAME University is aimed at promoting FLAME’s internationalization strategy. It supports FLAME University’s teaching, research and service around the world. It is a mutually beneficial association of the University with leading international universities, reputed institutes and internationally acclaimed research bodies. The aim of these associations, in addition to the academic enrichment of students and faculty, is to present to the FLAME community contemporary but coherent account of the various international developments, events, ideas and situations as they unfold. It provides the community an opportunity to see, understand, appreciate and confront the ongoing global developments and conflicts as current events rather than grand historical narratives that frequently obscure the sequence of events that they struggle to explain.
The primary objective of this initiative is to provide the FLAME community opportunities for a global view of things and a wonderfully diverse mix of perspectives. In today’s globalized world everyone needs to think of themselves as global citizens capable of informed appreciation of international issues and events even though these may not be part of their immediate physical environment.
At FLAME University we are passionate about supporting students and faculty in their quest for international exposure through our Study Abroad, Summer Abroad, International Exchange and Research Collaboration programs.
Currently, FLAME University has associations with the following prestigious institutes globally:
- Wellesley College
- Yale University
- Kelley School of Business, Indiana University Bloomington
- Babson Collaborative

- York University
- King's University College

Additionally, FLAME University has been accepted as a member in the Global Liberal Arts Alliance. It is the first Indian institution to be represented in the Global Liberal Arts Alliance, the only global consortium of its kind. The Global Liberal Arts Alliance is an association of liberal arts colleges around the world. It was established in 2009. The goal of the consortium is to provide an international framework for cooperation among institutions. It seeks to serve as a beacon for educational leaders, faculty members and administrators. Its purpose is to exchange knowledge, expertise and experience among institutions committed to education in the tradition of the liberal arts and sciences.
