Kellogg and the Indian School of Business partner to provide executives with a global education
Thanks to a partnership between Kellogg and the Indian School of Business, executives in India have a pipeline for growth and learning.

The ISB-Kellogg Global Advanced Management Programme is an open-enrollment, non-degree executive education course de-signed to enhance participants’ understanding of the global economy.

Participants spend a week in the fall learning from the faculty at the Indian School of Business, one of India’s leading advanced business management schools, before traveling to the Allen Center in Evanston to tap into the knowledge and expertise of some of Kellogg’s top-tier faculty.

“These are very senior participants who are very dedicated to understanding the global economy and drawing on the insights of the faculty from each school,” said Robert Hughes, Kellogg’s academic director for the program.

Last fall, the participants spent a week at ISB learning about strategy, finance, macroeconomics and global leadership. During their week at Kellogg, they received training in marketing, innovation, collaboration, risk management and global economics.

“As the program has grown, we’ve really been able to develop that synergy between the two schools, so it really adds great per-spectives to their education,” Hughes said.

Perhaps someday, said Hughes, executive participants might travel to India and benefit from instruction at ISB and have the op-portunity to visit Indian companies.

“If you look at the different economies in the world — Brazil, Russia, India and China — it’s really going to be important to get a better understanding of the growth of the Indian economy,” he said.
