IIMK Is The First IIM To Collaborates With An Ivy League University In An Executive Education Programme

One of India’s top business schools, The Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (IIMK) recently collaborated with Stanford University for its premier executive education programme. IIMK's contribution in the field of Executive Education is very significant.

Commenting on this, Prof. Debashis Chatterjee, Director, IIM-K, said, “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."

Major Features of this Collaboration

Under this collaboration, the Stanford faculty will deliver 5 webinars periodically over the course of one year.  The webinars will be provided via the live virtual platform of TSW or The second wind (An initiative by Times Professional Learning for Working Professionals). Participants will also be getting an individual certificate of participation from Stanford University.


This will add a significant value to the students of the IIMK. Stanford Centre for Professional Development (SCPD) Masterclass Webinar Series in Design Thinking & Innovation will introduce the participants to the nature of innovation & creativity. This will provide a cohesive educational experience customized to the goals of a working professional. It will also help them to use the creative thinking to promote and scale innovation in their organization.

International Exposure

Collaborating with one of the world’s leading university, IIMK is providing a unique opportunity to its students to learn how to support innovative ideas and practices. They will also be able to learn how to identify pockets of innovation and excellence and create processes which reveal innovative solutions to organizational or customer issues.

The Dean, Extension Programs of IIMK, Prof. C Raju, further added, "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."
