Clayton State University has signed a memorandum of understanding with an Indian university to deepen academic collaboration and student and faculty exchanges. 

The agreement with Sri Krishna Institutions in Coimbatore, India, calls for a dual four-year degree in business starting in June 2015 in India, whereby students will finish the core aspects of their curriculum in Clayton-approved courses in India, then finish up at Clayton State in metro Atlanta.

According to a Clayton State news release, many Indian students who complete the business degree will have the option of staying one more year to earn a master’s of business administration at Clayton State. 

The universities will also hold a joint conference in India in early 2016. 

SKI has about 12,000 students and is located in the southern state of Tamil Nadu
