The Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode's (IIMK) International Exchange Programme endeavors to work with partner institutions to develop mutually beneficial scholarly and social engagements between students, faculty members across the globe. We believe that these engagements would result in knowledge sharing regarding best practices in research, teaching and learning experience and understanding of business practices and conventions in different countries, and appreciation of the social, political, economic and cultural dynamics that impact global business operations. Currently IIMK has exchange partnerships with 42 top International Management Institutes.
The international partnerships, which IIM Kozhikode enters into, also have a faculty exchange component, which are expected to be more comprehensive, and more rewarding than the usual students exchange agreement. Faculty members from IIM Kozhikode may spend an academic term at partner institution, which may send their academic staff in turn to IIM Kozhikode, under mutually agreed terms. The goal of such faculty exchange is not just to exchange course instructors, but is, rather, to develop research linkages of a continuing nature, facilitating access to information and data on a scale and of a qualitative nature, not possible otherwise.
