In brief


Sports MOU Signed

Delhi Daredevils (DD) signed an MoU with the Jindal Global University (JGU)’s Centre for India Australia Studies (CIAS) at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium. The MoU encourages DD to participate and contribute in educating students and academics about sports law and governance issues that arise in one of the biggest sporting leagues in the world — the IPL.

DD will assist by providing guest lectures for programmes run by the CIAS and facilitate tours and site visits to its facilities. In addition, DD will encourage interactions with team management and players as it is hoped that this will catalyse a more practical insight into the business and governance of sports from the perspective of a leading IPL franchise. Speaking at the launch event, the Australian High Commissioner to India, Harinder Sidhu hoped the MoU will further strengthen the bond between India and Australia

Shorter GMAT

The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) is shortening the length of the GMAT exam by 30 minutes as part of its ongoing focus on creating the best possible testing experience and offering user-friendly features. The new, shorter exam — 3.5 hours instead of 4 — will be available for test-takers worldwide beginning April 16, 2018.

The quality of the exam remains unchanged in terms of reliability, validity, security and integrity. GMAT scores before and after this change will be the same and comparable across time.
