Maria Mathai, Director of ..., 4 Mar 2014 [cached]
Maria Mathai, Director of M.M Advisory Services, an international education consultancy firm, was recently awarded a Governor-General's Gold Medallion for advancing Canada's education interests in India. Mathai provides on the-ground recruitment and advising in India for Canadian secondary schools, colleges, and universities, including the University of Alberta.
She received the medallion from Governor-General David Johnston himself during a reception at the Canadian High Commission in New Delhi. Johnston recently led an eight-day mission to India, focused on enhancing educational ties and increasing student mobility between Canada and India.
The federal government is aiming to double the number of international students studying in Canada, as part of its international education strategy. Johnston, a former president of the University of Waterloo and principal of McGill, would like to see Canada competing with other Western countries-such as Australia-that are leading the way in attracting foreign students.
Mathai says she was honored and delighted to be recognized for her work.
"I am thrilled at the honor," said Mathai, who has provided recruitment services in India for UAlberta for more than four years.
