Coventry University Group opens Global Hub in New Delhi

Coventry University Group has increased its longstanding connections with India by opening a Global Hub in the heart of New Delhi.  

Leena Arora Kukreja, regional managing director of Coventry University Group's India Hub, and Richard Wells, the university's Deputy Vice-Chancellor.

The Hub will house more than 70 employees in India to support Coventry University Group’s admissions, recruitment and partnerships portfolio in India and the region. It will also serve as a base for business development personnel serving the research and enterprise portfolios and for visiting researchers and academics from the UK to further intensify the research links between both countries.

Adopting a minimalist corporate design scheme, the new office space includes some traditional patterns reflective of Indian culture as well as some features and colours linked to Coventry University Group’s branding.

Professor John Latham CBE, Coventry University’s Vice-Chancellor, said: “The India Hub represents the university’s long-term commitment to build strategic collaborations in India and throughout the region and will be an important addition to Coventry University Group’s international presence. 

“The India Hub will streamline communication and collaboration between the university and organisations in Indian education, business and government.”

The India Hub is the sixth in Coventry University Group’s network of Global Hubs, joining those in Brussels, Dubai, Africa, China and Singapore. The global hubs act as Coventry University Group’s business development centres, serving key regions and developing collaborative relationships that further its work as an economic development partner for governments and public and private sector organisations.

Michael Houlgate, Deputy Director at British Council India, said: “We are delighted to see the deepening engagement between the higher education sectors of both our countries, underscoring the continuing progress in education collaboration as laid out in the India UK 2030 Roadmap. Our heartiest congratulations to Coventry University Group on this new initiative.”
