Executive development programs for practising managers, management consulting and research projects relevant to Indian businesses in the fast-changing environment are some of the courses taught, he said.
SPJIMR and the Baan Institute have agreed to establish a close working relationship. For SPJIMR, this relationship is part of a broader initiative of its management and business training philosophy to establish networking with other training research and education institutions and to develop alliances with the industry for responding to new challenges of management education due to globalisation of Indian economy.
For the Baan Institute, this relationship is part of its university synergy program designed to establish a global research and education network for business and information technology.
The networking relationship expected to create knowledge base and expertise in India for adopting enterprise applications by Indian businesses more successfully and making significant contribution to taking this application to its maturity stage in years to come through our joint research and development effort, Buttema added.
