London Met continues to form and grow partnerships with educational institutions both domestic and abroad. Most recently, the University welcomed Mr Sulav Budhathoki, Founder and Group Chairman of Innovate Nepal Group (ING), based in Katmandu, Nepal.

During the visit, Professor Lynn Dobbs, Vice-Chancellor of London Met, and Mr Budhathoki discussed new possible developments to add to the already successful partnership of nearly ten years. This includes the addition of new undergraduate Computing courses with the School of Computing and Digital Media, as well as new undergraduate and postgraduate Business courses with the Guildhall School of Business and Law. 

They also explored the opportunity of offering an online Business Administration BA with potentially hundreds of students in Indonesia, as well as the prospect of advancing the offer to other countries. 

Mr Budhathoki said: “I am personally feeling very comfortable with the leadership, welcoming attitude, and vision London Met has towards supporting Nepal and growth beyond Nepal”.

This partnership bridges the West and East corners of the world with ING’s partnerships colleges including Islington College, Informatics College, and Itahari International College.

London Metropolitan University and ING have created a great positive impact in Nepal in different areas, from education to employability, to both to students and staff, who also have the opportunity to study on postgraduate and doctorate programmes at London Met.
