Bengaluru: IIM Bangalore has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Airports Authority of India (AAI), through which IIMB will offer custom training programmes to AAI executives, in the area of general management. The agreement was signed in the presence of Professor G.

“This programme further reinforces the leadership that IIM Bangalore enjoys in the Aerospace and Aviation sector coming as it is on the back of our successful Aerospace MBA programme in partnership with Toulouse Business School, France and other programmes on infrastructure and Public Private Partnership. We hope that this will go a long way in equipping the Airport Managers with the skills needed to contribute to the development of the critical infrastructure requirement of the country,” said Prof. R.

The training programmes are targeted to AAI executives grouped into three categories – Functional Heads comprising Executive Directors & General Managers, Senior Management comprising Joint General Managers, and Middle Management comprising Assistant General Managers.
