Bodh Gaya: As a part of its academic exchange programme series, Indian Institute of Management signed an MoU with Alba Graduate Business School, Greece. The collaboration will give impetus to the bilateral flow of knowledge, culture and values between the countries, transcending the geographical boundaries.
Founded in 1992 in Athens, Greece, ALBA operates under the auspices of the Federation of Greek Industries – an employers’ union in Greece, the Hellenic Management Association – an executives’ association in Greece and the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
ALBA was the first non-state business school to be established in Greece. It has attracted funding from Greek companies and business people and has one endowed Chair and two endowed Professorships. It is a non-profit educational association of more than 85 Greek corporations. Known for the highest academic standards, Alba is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). Furthermore, all Alba programs are AMBA(Association of MBAs) accredited.
The exchange programme will allow the students and the faculty of both the institutions to obtain insights into the distinguished culture, values and educational structures of each other’s nations. The exchange program will further promote the mutual flow of knowledge and values through organisation collaborations and research tie-ups. This opportunity will enable scholars to develop an understanding of the business interconnectedness of both the countries and ever-evolving complexities of corporate realms like finance and marketing from a global outlook.
