The Global Outreach Program is an integrated approach in taking IIPM to a world-class level, capable of competing successfully with the best. According to Inderanil Das, General Manager – global Outreach Program, the institute is using a phased approach:
Phase I involved the introduction of the highly innovative Global Opportunity and Threat Analysis Program as a compulsory paper at IIPM. Students are given an unique opportunity to visit various leading international organizations like World Bank, WHO, UN, and many more apart from management institutions and global corporates for a two week study trip to the European, American and Asian continents.
Phase II involved the introduction of another innovative concept – faculty members from around the world visits IIPM campuses in India to take classes and workshops. These faculty are the best in their chosen subjects and represent Ivy league institutes like Harvard, Kellogg, Columbia, Chicago GSB, MIT and Yale apart from other leading European academic institutions of excellence like Cambridge and Oxford University.
In Phase III, as a part of the Global Outreach Program, IIPM entered into research and publications alliances with international academic partners. HR, Finance, Strategy and Marketing experts and faculty from around the world collaborate with faculty and researchers at IIPM on gathering and analyzing data on the latest trends and findings in the field of management. Recently, IIPM and Yale School of Management agreed to conduct a landmark joint research exercise: The Yale IIPM Stock Market Analysis report.
Phase IV was another ground-breaking approach by IIPM, whereby, it has now decided to expand beyond the national boundary and start up campuses in foreign lands.
