Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, and BRS Ventures of UAE recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding [MoU] to start IIM A’s first Extension Centre in Dubai. The Centre is to commence operations in June 2018.
The MoU was signed at the World Government Summit, 2018, an annual event held at Dubai. Indian Prime minister Modi is the Guest of Honour at the Summit this time.
IIM A will provide the academic and training expertise while BRS Ventures will facilitate all support required including infrastructure, logistics and industry links. At Dubai, the Centre will begin with Executive Education programmes which are relevant to that region. Later, depending on the response, other programmes may be rolled out too.
IIM A and BRS Ventures believe that this Extension Centre in UAE will be a major landmark to represent mutually beneficial collaboration between India and the UAE.
