The Strategic Partners for Development Programmes was established to foster dialogue on issues of common interest between IEMD Graduate Business School and a small and selected group of companies. This programme will:
- Promote interchange and collaboration between the school and the business community to create innovative projects of mutual interest;
- Sustain a privileged network between the IEMD Graduate Business School community and the Partner companies;
- Contribute to IEMD Graduate Business School’s development by funding valuable initiatives for participants and Faculty.
Partner companies are involved through their participation in the Development Committee and the Coordinating Committee. The Development Committee is the forum through which the top management of Partner companies and the school meet and agree on the Programme’s strategic direction and the areas of cooperation. The Coordinating Committee is a working group of managers appointed by each Partner company.
Its objective is to create a dialogue between the companies and the school on areas of common interest, defining projects involving IEMD Graduate Business School’s Faculty and staff. An annual donation of € 10,000 is required to become a Partner company.
