This Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between BITS and Lupin has been signed with the objective of fostering collaboration between the two institutions to promote academic and research interactions.

The educational programmes conducted under this collaborative arrangement will offer the employees of Lupin an opportunity to enhance their academic qualification, synergize theory with practice on a sustained basis, be multi-skilled with exposure to upcoming technological areas, appreciate key management concepts, participate better in organizational initiatives and provide meaningful insights

Lupin would make available the necessary infrastructural facilities and logistical support required (such as office facilities for BITS faculty, classrooms with necessary equipment, library facilities, facilities for conducting examinations, computer and communication facilities with access to electronic mail and Internet) for the smooth and effective conduct of the educational programmes. Lupin would also endeavor to provide corporate support for identifying resource persons from Lupin to participate in the academic and pedagogic aspects of the programme, wherever necessary.

The employees of Lupin admitted to the BITS programmes under this collaborative arrangement, will be treated as BITS students and will be governed by the fee structure and academic regulations of BITS and also by the service rules and regulations specified by Lupin.
