Indian School of Business signs MoU with IBA in Karachi

The Indian School of Business (ISB), Hyderabad has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Institute of Business Administration (IBA) in Karachi to provide executive education in Pakistan. The collaboration brings together the Centre for Executive Education (CEE) at ISB, one of the largest executive education providers in Asia and IBA, the oldest business school outside North America, to provide executive education courses to senior management executives looking to fast track their careers.

The MoU was signed by Deepak Chandra, Deputy Dean, ISB and Dr Ishrat Husain, Dean and Director, IBA, Karachi, at the ISB campus. Deepak Chandra said in a release, "We are confident that this partnership will help generate tremendous opportunities for cross-collaboration between the two schools and sets the tone for many more future associations aimed at nurturing business leaders and entrepreneurs who would contribute to the growth of business and industry in Pakistan."

The course offerings will include 'open programmes' or short-duration programmes that are driven by research, 'custom-designed programmes' or specialised courses devised to cater to specific needs of a particular organisation as well as workshops and seminars. For starters, the proposed programmes would focus on family business, entrepreneurship, business leadership, strategy and related domains. This would later be expanded to include programmes on Public Private Partnership (PPP) as well.

While ISB will focus on the design and delivery of the programmes, IBA will be responsible for their marketing and promotion. The programmes will be conducted by ISB's faculty. The first programme is slated to commence in June, 2012.
