The Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (IIM-K) has announced a collaboration with Stanford University for its premier executive education programme, EPGP.
Under this collaboration, five webinars, provided over the course of one year, will be delivered to the participants by the Stanford faculty via the live virtual platform of TSW or The Second Wind. Stanford University will also provide individual certificates of participation to the participants.
IIM-K is the first IIM to collaborate with an Ivy League University in an Executive Education Programme. The Masterclass Webinar Series in Design Thinking & Innovation provides a cohesive educational experience tailored to the goals of IIMK.
Prof. Debashis Chatterjee, Director at IIM-K, said, “IIMK's contribution in the field of Executive Education is very significant; IIMK has been consistently updating the curriculum to provide the best to the participants; Partnering with Stanford is another step taking forward the Executive Education to a new horizon. This surely will enable the working professionals from various fields to gain competency and leadership skills to fast-track their career growth in their organizations."
Prof. C Raju, the Dean, Extension Programs of IIM-K, also said, "This strategic alliance with Stanford University would go a long way giving exposure to the latest Design Thinking Techniques to the participants of EPGP and will help them as well as the organizations they work with. This is only a beginning of such great international collaborations."
