IIM-Shillong inaugurated an International Student Exchange Program with Mandalay University

In an initiative to facilitate business between India and Myanmar, the Indian Institute of Management-Shillong today inaugurated an International Student Exchange Programme with Mandalay University.

The 10-day Refresher Course in Management is aimed at facilitating MBA students to understand management through a renewed perspective in tandem with the changing global scenario.

IIM-Shillong chairman Falguni Rajkumar inaugurated the programme, which got a nod and facilitation from both the Ministry of External Affairs and the Mandalay Consul General.

Coordinator of the Mandalay University Programme Dr Naliniprava Tripathy said “We look forward to more such exchanges with premier Universities and Business Schools across the globe.”

“Such initiatives breed a rich cultural and academic discourse. They condition leaders across geographical boundaries to cope with the ever increasing challenges of modern business era,” she said.

The exchange programme is a student-instructor-arranged intercultural immersion experience featuring core Management learning, collaborative research and service and a Memorandum of Understanding with the University is in process to facilitate further connection in research and faculty-student exchanges, Tripathy said.

“The institute looks forward to this exchange as a pioneer step towards building a long lasting relationship with Myanmar and other neighbouring nations,” an IIM spokesperson said.
