Having been recognized as a constant innovator in terms of program designing, IIM-Shillong on Thursday, 5th July, 2012, formally launched its first executive post-graduate programme (PGP-Ex) on international business with special reference to China, which is being dubbed as the first ever in the arena of business studies. "The programme is an outcome of visionary leadership paving the way for a fruitful collaboration with the Ocean University of China located at Qingdao," a spokesperson for the youngest B-school in the country said.
"This is a strategic move, and we have chosen to deliberately tie up with OUC's economics department rather than its business school. We are of the opinion that this will help enhance synergies and derive better insights into the Chinese economy and business culture. Our motto is to never duplicate resources but in fact synergize to get the best out of collaborative efforts in terms of expertise and use of resources," said Ashoke Kumar Dutta, director of the institution. Addressing the first batch of 35 students undertaking the PGP-Ex, Dutta's exhorted, "We expect you to be morally upright, intellectually competent, socially committed and spiritually inspired, all the while taking advantage of being a member of the IIM-S community." TKA Nair, adviser to the Prime Minister, lauded the innovative approaches of IIM-Shillong in terms of its use of technology and more so its programmes. Nair said in a changing global economy in the context of changing relationships with China, the avenues for business must be grasped to ensure a sense of well-being for the general populace of both countries. "China's role and global economy is bound to grow in the days to come and we have to learn to live and compete as a friendly neighbour," he said. Nair portrayed that the programme, being launched by IIM-Shillong, is "extremely timely and will benefit the country at large."
