Is that really true?

I dont know whether to be happy or sad with this news. on one hand this can go on a long way to propel India high up in world technical community, on the other hand this could also mean that these prestigious instt. like IIT are also going for commercialisation!!!

If they really want to open one another campus, they should open in India. Commercialization is not good for educational institute like IIT.

Point is we dont yet know if what is happening is commercialisation of earnest effort to spread Indian educational influence in the world.

Well so many of the ed institutes from the UK and Australia seek students from India..their representatives come to India to recruit students..MBA schools all over the world try to attact students from many countries(check the ads in the Intl Herald or the Economist..)..I do not see it as a 'commercialization' really..an enterprising venture maybe..
