Clark University’s School of Management (SOM) and IIM Shillong, an elite management institution in India, have signed a memorandum of understanding that will bring greater academic opportunities to Clark students and faculty.
The partnership will give SOM students increased opportunities for traveling, working, and studying in a global management institution in India, as well as international research and potential job placements. The MoU also brings shared academic research opportunities and professional staff collaboration between the two schools.
“I’m excited to see this partnership evolve and look forward to welcoming IIM students and faculty to our University in the coming years,” said Alan Eisner, dean of the School of Management.
“The partnership between IIM Shillong and Clark University will not only bring greater shared opportunities but also assist in raising our institution’s profile in the worldwide market and boost the caliber of our students,” said DP Goyal, a professor and director at IIM Shillong.
“One of the collaboration’s objectives is to provide participants with the information they need to adopt an outcome-based learning method,” Goyal added, “which will teach them how to start, run, and grow their enterprises in the real world.”
Like Clark, IIM Shillong has a particular interest in entrepreneurship teaching methods., The School of Management’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program was shortlisted for the 2022 Innovation in Business Education Award from the Wharton-QS Reimagine Education Awards; in 2020, the E&I program was honored as part of the Innovations That Inspire Challenge of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
SOM offers an array of programs strengthened by its commitment to social innovation, responsible management, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. In addition to its popular MBA and specialized master’s degrees, IIM students will have access to the School’s newest graduate degree programs in marketing analytics, accounting analytics, and a human resources concentration with the MBA. At the undergraduate level, the business school offers a bachelor’s degree and a minor in marketing, as well as concentration options in data analytics and actuarial finance to fit any degree program.
