Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], July 13: Excelia Business School (France) is proud to announce a new academic partnership with NSB Academy in Bangalore, starting from September 2023. 

The collaboration of the two higher education institutions will be centered on a graduate bridging programme, where students start their studies in India, and complete them in France. Indian students having already graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from an Indian university are eligible. The programme was initiated by Dr Amitabh Anand, Associated Professor at Excelia Business School, originally from India. It includes 411 credit hours and its overall duration is 24 months. 

The graduate bridging programme between Excelia Business School and NSB Academy is structured as follows: selected students will first attend a Pre-Master course at NSB Academy in Bangalore during one year.
