The Indian Institute of Management-Lucknow (IIM-L) will offer its students an elective course on ‘Microeconomics of Competitiveness’ in partnership with Harvard Business School (HBS).
The Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow (IIM-L) and the Harvard Business School will offer a course on ‘Microeconomics of Competitiveness’ to students of different programmes from academic session 2016-17. IIM Lucknow will be able to use the Harvard expertise in cluster development at local government level.
The tie-up has come about after two IIM-L professors recently visited HBS to attend a faculty workshop on ‘Microeconomics of Competitiveness’ held at the Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness, HBS. The course will be taught by Professor Ashutosh Kumar Sinha and Professor Sanjay Singh of IIM-L. The MOC course is being taught at SP Jain Institute of Management and Research, Mumbai.
Two IIM-L professors, Sanjay K Singh and Ashutosh K Sinha, had recently attended a workshop at HBS’ Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness (ISC) in the US to prepare for the course.
The partnership would allow IIM-Lucknow to be able to access the continuously updated teaching material developed by ISC. The IIM would also be able to use the Harvard expertise in cluster development at the local government level.
“The course focuses on the sources of national or regional productivity, which are rooted in the strategies and operating practices of locally based firms, the vitality of clusters, and the quality of the business environment in which competition takes place,” said ISC.
HBS is the reputed graduate business school of Harvard University in Boston, United States.
