New Delhi [India], Aug 4 (ANI / NewsView): Manav Rachna International Institute of Research and Studies, Delhi NCR (formerly Manav Rachna International University) and University of Waikato, New Zealand, have teamed up to offer a joint undergraduate program in commerce and business Administration.

COVID-19 has disrupted the plans of many students who want to study abroad. As education service providers around the world work on hybrid learning modes, the collaboration is an important step towards internationalization for the Manav Rachna International Research and Studies Institute (MRIIRS) and the University of Waikato.

The agreement allows students to study the first year of their bachelor’s degree at MRIIRS, Delhi NCR. Eligible students will then be allowed to move on to the University of Waikato in New Zealand for their next two years of study and then earn a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Waikato.

New Zealand is emerging as a popular study destination, especially for its proactive management of the pandemic. Two of the island nation’s cities were recently ranked among the World’s Most Lovable Cities by the Economic Intelligence Unit, with Auckland at the top of the list. As New Zealand continues to restrict the entry of foreign nationals, the agreement with MRIIRS gives students who wish to study in New Zealand the opportunity to start from home.
