What´s the best way to form strategic partnerships with US universities?

QUESTION:

I´m working with an educational institute in India.  We currently offer courses in IT, software QA and other subjects.  We have a stratetic relationship with the IEEE for a few of our programs.  We are planning to expand by offering joint programs with reputed universities in the United States in the areas of IT, management programs, and software engineering certifications.  What´s the best way to go about forming these relationships and offering joint courses between our univesity and US universities?

I’m afraid that I don’t have the complete answer, but I suggest that you can contact Stanford University’s BioDesign program … they have established very successful collaborative relationships with India and at least one other country.  Although it is in a different discipline, it might provide you with some guidelines and benchmarking information.

    Form and build a trustworthy relationship. Start with one university and increase your inteeligence from the process regardless if they become a strategic partner or not. If they do, you have another partner. If they don’t, you increased your intelligence to refine and hone your approach and partner offering. Also, if they aren’t the right fit and they considered your approach, ask them if they can refer you to someone who may be the right fit.
