British High Commissioner to India, Richard Stagg on Wednesday said that UK Business Schools are keen to provide expertise to Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Shillong to have environmental friendly business practices. “We may not be able to financially aid IIM, Shillong, but we can extend support to IIM, Shillong by providing faculty members from UK,” Stagg told reporters after inaugurating the Accelerated Learning Centre at IIM, Shillong. Stagg was accompanied by his deputy in Kolkata, Simon Wilson. He said that Britain was keen to involve UK Business Schools in sustainable and ecological development by providing a lot of expertise. Educational cooperation between UK Business Schools and IIM, Shillong would benefits both countries, the British diplomat said. Terming the IIM, Shillong as an “impressive home of learning”, Stagg hoped that the IIM students will be able to interact with the business experts with the UK once the collaboration is finalized. Earlier, Stagg interacted with the faculty members and the students of the IIM after he inaugurated Accelerated Learning Centre. The Centre is the first on-line and campus programme in sustainable global enterprises and e-marketing. Students who enroll themselves in Accelerated Learning Center in IIM Shillong, can maintain a global network and engage in corporate research and field work focused on strategy formulation and implementation in sustainable innovation and enterprise management’.
