Rachnoutsav Academy, Leeds Univ in strategic pact

Hyderabad-based Rachnoutsav Events Academy has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Leeds Metropolitan University, UK.

Through the MoU, Leeds Metropolitan University and Rachnoutsav Events Academy will support each other to develop course curriculum and an international knowledge network, besides creating a pool of professional talent for the events and wedding planning industry.

Rakhi Kankaria, Director, Rachnoutsav Events Academy said, “There are many institutions, organisations and associations that are offering event management training in a small way without a structured curriculum. We believe we need to have a professional and structured learning backed by a university affiliation, which will help students to pursue this education with a wider perspective. We are honoured to be forging a partnership with Leeds Metropolitan University as our vision, mission and commitment to education are well aligned.”

Rachnoutsav Events Academy is South Asia’s first institution to offer integrated learning programme in event management and wedding planning. Under the linkage, the academy would offer the foundation as well as advanced courses in event management, sports event management and wedding planning programmes at its campus in Hyderabad.

Andrew Disbury, Director of the International Office, Leeds Metropolitan University, who signed the MoU, said in a statement, “During our delegation’s visit earlier this year, we explored opportunities of cooperation between Rachnoutsav Events Academy and Leeds Metropolitan University. We are a leading University in the UK for event management, and we are interested in investing in knowledge sharing with partners around the world. I am delighted that together with Rachnoutsav Events Academy, Leeds Metropolitan University can reveal the first step in fulfilling that cooperation via our MoU.”

Leeds Metropolitan University will support and assist in the structuring and implementation of the planned curriculum as well as developing joint workshops, staff training programmes and assisting in overseas internships. It will also provide consultancy and guidance in obtaining validation to Rachnoutsav on sports event management. The MoU will allow both the organisations to identify opportunities for faculty training, academic cooperation, student visits to the UK and sharing of experience and expertise.

Sanjay Kankaria, Director, Rachnoutsav Events Academy, added here, “We believe that unification of professional education enriches the process of learning and reaches a greater potential. The purpose of education is to produce integrated men and women who have the freedom to excel in their field of academic interest and the role of the institution is to guide the students to discover their interest and unleash their potential. This partnership is a major step toward achieving this objective.”
