The Indian School of Business, in Hyderabad, is to teach executives in Pakistan through an agreement with the Institute of Business Administration (IBA) in Karachi.
Included in the agreement will be both short open programmes and customised programmes, designed for specific companies in Pakistan. To begin with, the proposed programmes will focus on family business, entrepreneurship, leadership and strategy. In the future programmes on public private partnerships will be added to the portfolio.
While ISB will focus on the design and delivery of the programmes, IBA will be responsible for their marketing and promotion. The first programme is expected to take place in June 2012.
Deepak Chandra, deputy dean at ISB signed the memorandum of understanding on behalf of ISB “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,” he said.
