IABCA's first India Immersion Program has Deakin Education as a partner

 Deakin University is proud to be the education partner for the India Australia Business & Community Alliance’s (IABCA) first-ever India Immersion programme 2023. Representatives from Deakin were present during the IABCA Global Leaders Forum and IABCA Awards Ceremony, which brought together top business and community leaders from Australia and India to explore new opportunities for collaboration. It was also an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of those who have made a significant contribution to the growth of the bilateral relationship.

As one of Australia’s leading universities, Deakin is committed to fostering international partnerships and supporting the growth of business and community ties between Australia and India. Deakin’s partnership with IABCA is a testament to the university’s commitment to promoting education, research and business collaboration between the two countries. The India Immersion programme 2023 featured a series of business and cultural activities, including panel discussions and networking opportunities, offering attendees the chance to learn about Deakin’s research strengths, educational programs, and innovative partnerships with leading Indian institutes and organisations.

Bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table, Professor Iain Martin, President and Vice-Chancellor of Deakin, joined the IABCA Global Leaders Forum panel discussion on the topic ‘Enriching public opinion and cross-cultural understanding of India and Australia’ as a speaker.

He was joined by Danielle Mate, Indigenous Cultural Ambassador; The Hon Lisa Singh, former senator and CEO of Australia India Institute; Nick Hockley, CEO of Cricket Australia; Petula Thomas, CEO of Indo-Australian Chamber of Commerce; and Sarah Storey, Deputy High Commissioner of the Australian High Commission to India, on the panel.
