Imperial College Business School today joined the Partnership in International Management (PIM). PIM is a consortium of 63 leading global business schools which facilitates exchange opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students. Members include the business schools of NYU, Tsinghua, NUS and HEC Paris universities to name just a few.
Founded in 1973, PIM have organised more than 30,000 exchange opportunities during its 43 years of operation. “Exchange opportunities are very important for students,” explained Associate Dean, Dr Edgar Meyer, “an exchange helps to support the development of well networked, culturally and globally literate business leaders.”
Imperial College Business School has built a strong reputation for internationalisation which is reflected in the cultural diversity of its faculty and programme cohorts to the ‘Global Experience Week’, where students experience first-hand the social and cultural dynamics of business in other countries. The PIM partnership further extends the School’s global outlook by facilitating opportunities for students to not only gain international exposure, but also undertake specialised electives in prestigious partner schools where they expand their personal global network.
Paolo Taticchi, Director of Global Initiatives, added: “It is the Business School’s aim to drive global business and social transformation. Joining the consortium is another step in strengthening our ability to provide a number of opportunities to our students as part of their development to becoming the world’s future leaders of business and society.
“We have been working to develop the possibility of dual programmes and identify international opportunities. Over the past year we have strengthened our overseas presence by working with other international institutions such as HEC Paris. I look forward to leveraging the PIM network to deliver a richer global experience for our students and partner organisations.”
