The Indian School of Business (ISB) links MoU with Institute of Business Administration (IBA) Karachi: Cross border collaboration

HYDERABAD: The Indian School of Business (ISB) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Institute of Business Administration (IBA), Karachi to provide executive education in Pakistan, a top ISB official said today.

The agreement was signed by Deepak Chandra, Deputy Dean, ISB and Dr Ishrat Husain, Dean and Director, IBA, Karachi, at the ISB campus.

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, Chandra told reporters.

"This marks the beginning of a new chapter in the history of two distinguished business schools in the region. 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," Chandra said.

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 globally renowned faculty. The first programme is slated to commence June, 2012, Husain said.

"We will start on a modest scale but will build up our relations over time as each one of the two institutions gets to know the other. As a long time advocate and firm believer in friendly relations between the two neighbourly countries for peace and prosperity of our people, this event represents a turning point. India had made huge advances in higher education, science and technology and we in Pakistan should benefit from their achievements," Hussain said.
