The University of Virginia Darden School of Business and the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) have announced the signing of a new partnership that includes student exchange programs and research collaboration.
“We believe that this relationship between two strong global business schools ”” Darden and IIMA ”” will provide immediate benefits to both schools and offer significant opportunities well into the future,” says Peter Rodriguez, Darden’s associate dean for international affairs and director of Darden’s Tayloe Murphy Center International.
Both schools use a case-study method to teach, and fellowships from the Tayloe Murphy Center International will bring IIMA faculty to Darden to work on case writing and research.
Professor Arnab Laha, faculty coordinator of student exchange at IIMA, says the partnership will enhance the diversity and vibrancy of both campuses.
In India, Darden is also an active partner of the Indian School of Business in Hyderabad and XLRI School of Business and Human Resources of Jamshedpur.
“By linking our two strong programs together, Darden and IIMA solidify a linkage that will foster student exchange, joint case-writing and research and a future of closer connections between the best students and faculty anywhere,” says Rodriguez.
