Published: January 30, 2012.

Recently Lewis University hosted Mr. Mallik Sundharam, Director of Recruitment & Partnership Support for ELS International Pathways, based in Chennai, India. Having been educated and worked at Saint Joseph’s in Philadelphia for more than a decade, he will serve as the Managing Director for all of ELS operations in India. The ELS vision is to build a network of strategically located offices throughout the country.

“As part of the Lewis University international recruitment strategy to build deeper, long-term and sustainable relationships with dedicated resources, it is my hope to enter the Indian market with a proven partner who is dedicated to the internationalization of education,” said Michael Fekete, Director of International Recruitment. Fekete was able to secure Lewis as one of the charter member institutions along with a select few institutions who will begin working with ELS in India. The others are Hawaii- Pacific, Rutgers, Loyola-Marymount University, Saint Joseph University and Adelphi University

“There is going to be a steep growth of Indian students looking for international education opportunities abroad in the years to come,” says Mallik.

With 32.3% of total population under 14 and approximately 250 million people in the age range of 15-30 (approximately 25% of the total population), India will be an ideal market to build Lewis’ international recruitment structure.
