To boost the confidence of students and to give them an opportunity to see the world, take in a new culture, hone language skills, discover new interests and make new friendships, Student Exchange program is facilitated through ‘Short Term Mobility’ & ‘Long Term Mobility’. With more than 50 Partner Institutions, NMIMS ensures that students get the much-needed international exposure to add more value to their studies.

Long Term Mobility

Under this arrangement, NMIMS students have the opportunity to do Twinning Programs, Dual Degree Programs, Progression Programs and Joint International Degrees.

USA & Canada Universities:

Australia & New Zealand Universities:

Europe Universities:

Asia Universities:

Short Term Mobility

Under this collaboration, NMIMS students can visit one of our partner foreign universities for a semester and the students from partner international universities come to NMIMS for a semester or more.

Partner Schools/Universities for Exchange:

International Internships

Going a step ahead, International Internship is a great endeavour to assist students as they learn by observation and do things practically and the subsequent feedback helps them in understanding their strengths and weaknesses. NMIMS students can do International Internship in cities like Berlin, Boston, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Toronto, Vancouver and many more.

Students have multiple options to choose from:

  • A short duration internship of 8 weeks
  • A longer duration internship of 20 weeks
  • 3 Months internship

Most students can do the internship during their summer vacation (summer internships); engineering students can do a technical internship, management students can opt for a management internship and so on.


To propel the nascent ideas into reality, NMIMS students can choose to do research under ‘Shastri Research Student Fellowship (SRSF)’ offered through Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute (SICI) - MITACS Partnership program.

Moreover, there is also the advantage of ‘Globalink Research Internship’ which provides a ‘12 Week Research Project at a Canadian University for high-achieving senior undergraduates from around the world. Selected students travel to Canada where they work with a faculty supervisor and other researchers at their host universities.

  • Professional development workshops
  • Local Globalink Mentors

Summer School

Exposure to diversity is important to positively alter the system of thinking and hence, NMIMS sends its students to attend Summer School at leading universities across the world during their annual summer vacation. This visit gives NMIMS students the chance to mix with students of other nationalities and study a new-age subject or explore domains like music, art, literature, etc.
