In the most recent ranking by BloombergBusinessWeek, the Krannert School of Management is ranked #2 in the USA for its international diversity and among the top 1% in the world. We prepare students with analytical insight and leadership skills needed to meet tomorrow’s global business challenges. All of our activities, courses and programs are focused on achieving this goal. There is no program where this is more apparent than our International Master’s in Management (IMM) Program.
Just this past Monday I was in Budapest with deans from six other internationally known business schools to formally announce a major expansion in this program, from four partner schools to seven. The Krannert School of Management at Purdue University remains the only partner in the United States. Students in the program will earn an MBA from Purdue University as well as an MBA from another partner school.
It is our pleasure to welcome EMLyon Business School in France, Tianjin University in China and FGV School of Administration – EBAPE in Brazil to the IMM Program. Partnerships were previously established and will continue with Tias-Nimbas Business School of Tilburg University in Tilburg, the Netherlands; CEU Business School in Budapest, Hungary; and GISMA Business School in Hannover, Germany.
The expanded partnership will prepare graduates more thoroughly with diverse educational and cultural experiences to lead multinational teams around the world. The program is designed so students can complete the 20-month course of study without taking a break from their careers. Additional details can be found at Purdue’s IMM website and IMM’s Global webpage.
Our faculty is eager to work with our new partners to create relevant and sophisticated learning opportunities that only an IMM program spanning the globe can provide. This very important milestone provides a new model for global business education—one of leveraging diverse core competencies through a partnership of equals.
The IMM Executive MBA program has been recognized as one of the world’s “most international executive MBA” programs by the Financial Times. It is accredited in both the United States and Europe. We are very proud to be able to offer this expanded International Master’s in Management Program to executives ready to reap the benefits of a truly global business education.
