Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and the Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government (MBRSG) announced a partnership to foster innovation among Emirati students and promote innovation-friendly policymaking.

With the signing of an MoU by the two organizations at the Indian pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, MBRSG will now be part of TCS’ academic Co-Innovation Network, a global ecosystem of leading academic institutions for research collaborations. As part of the collaboration, TCS will institute the ‘TCS UAE Innovation Scholarship’ to sponsor a scholarship for a deserving Emirati student of MBRSG. Likewise, MBRSG will offer a scholarship to a deserving TCS employee.

TCS will also apply its expertise to support the school’s Master of Innovation Management (MIM) program and the Agile Government System Initiative. TCS will provide research and academic guidance and conduct courses that leverage design thinking and other innovation models. This will help prepare students for the future of industries, and of digitally transformed government services. The program will introduce MBRSG students to government innovation models from across the world, with real world examples of how institutions and nations can drive innovation.

Additionally, under the Agile Government Systems Initiative, TCS and MBRSG will collaborate to develop a policy sandbox for good governance, and jointly produce policy reports.

“We at TCS strongly believe in investing in today’s students to foster their talent and capacity for innovation, so that local communities will thrive in the digital economy of the future. Through this collaboration with the Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government, we hope to promote an innovation culture among their students, and also encourage policy makers to look at innovative use of technologies to enhance citizen services,” said Sumanta Roy, Regional Head, Middle East & Africa, TCS.
