V-LEAD Collaboration with Cornell University

Cornell Institute for Public Affairs (CIPA) is expanding its off-campus study options to include a new development management program in India.  Beginning this fall, Fellows can live, study, and work in Mysore, India for one semester while earning credit toward their Master of Public Administration (MPA) Degree.
In late November of 2013, CIPA signed an agreement with the Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement (SVYM), which offers a Master of Development Management (MDM) program accredited by the University of Mysore at the Vivekananda Institute of Leadership Development (VLEAD) in Mysore City, India.  CIPA has had a longstanding relationship with SVYM, an organization founded by Cornell Rhodes Professor Dr. Ramaswami Balasubramaniam.  SVYM’s project portfolio includes work in the areas of education, health, poverty alleviation, and training, research, advisory, consulting services.
