DH News Service, Bengaluru, Sep 14 2017, 0:32 IST

The Indian Institute of Management-Bangalore (IIMB) will, on Thursday, inaugurate the India-Japan Study Centre on its campus to promote understanding between the two Asian countries through research, teaching and policy outreach efforts.

IIMB director G Raghuram said, “At macro level, there are complementary factors between India and Japan in the sphere of economic development. We have a lot to learn from Japan on infrastructure and technology management and we can offer them insights on the startup culture.”

The institute’s faculty have collaborated with Japanese institutions, conducted joint research and offered Executive Education Programmes in the past. The centre is expected to take these initiatives to the next level.

The centre will facilitate collaborative initiatives among academia, industry and government agencies of both the countries in areas such as business environment, government policies, technology transfer, sustainability, intellectual property rights, and understanding of local culture and business practices, among others.

IIMB will explore options of offering dual degree programs with Hitotsubashi University and other universities in Japanand customised electives and immersion programmes for exchange students of the partnering universities. An Executive General Management Program (EGMP) for executives in Japanese companies in India is also on the anvil.

The activities of the centre will begin with a round table discussion on the new bilateral relationship between the two countries.
