"ISDI has entered into a collaboration with Parsons The New School for Design, New York. ISDI will be home to Parsons Mumbai and will benefit from Parsons rigorous curriculum, prominent faculty and global relationships."
Parsons Mumbai is the academic base for Parsons activities in India, which will include curriculum development, quality assurance, student and faculty exchanges, as well as collaborative projects with students at Parsons' campuses in New York and Paris.
Parsons Mumbai is a central part of Parsons agenda of ‘going global’. Parsons Mumbai, like Parsons Paris & Parsons Shanghai will function differently based on local regulations, and, more importantly, on local traditions.
Through the establishment of Parsons Mumbai and academic centers in Paris, Shanghai and other major cities, Parsons global initiatives are designed to build learning networks connected by major urban centers of art and design. These initiatives join Parsons existing study abroad offerings, online courses, and educational partnerships in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. The plan allows Parsons to share their proven educational methodology and give students opportunities to learn and work in real-world settings. Parsons goal is to develop students' global awareness, cultural literacy, and familiarity with the systems that shape creative, humanitarian, and entrepreneurial endeavors around the world.
