"Lee Quan Yew School of Public Policy is a very reputed institution in the world and this collaboration will be a continuing process," Mr. Konar said.
"The collaborative executive programme will be the first of its kind with a state-aided university in West Bengal," he said.
The programme will start after two months.
The course will be based on public policy matters and offer comparative perspectives from other south-east Asian countries.
The 30 senior officers will be chosen by the state government, Mr. Konar said.
Top level representatives from Lee Kuan were present when the MoU was signed here on June 14.
Presidency University Vice-Chancellor Anuradha Lohia and Konar were also present on the occasion.
"We are looking forward to be associated with a top institution in the world", Mr. Lohia said.
