Executive Management Development Programme Division  

The International Projects Division (IPD) of IIFT has the following objectives:

i) Conduct Capacity Development Programmes on International Business for African countries

Since 2009, the Institute has conducted such programmes in 35 African countries. These programmes, funded by the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India, have been customized to the training needs of the countries and have received favourable feedback from all stakeholders.

ii) Establish the India Africa Institute of Foreign Trade (IAIFT) in Africa

The Government of India envisages large benefits both to Africa and India through establishment of such an Institute. The plan is to organize both short-term and long-term training programmes on different facets of International Business and conduct Africa-focused research on trade policy and practices. The African Union has identified Kampal, Uganda as the location for the India-Africa Institute of Foreign Trade. The Government of Uganda is now in the process of identifying appropriate location for the Institute. The Ministry of External Affairs and the Ministry of Commerce & Industry, India together with IIFT are following up with the Government of Uganda on this issue. In the meanwhile, there is a proposal to operationalize the Institute through rented premises in Uganda.

iii) Conduct off-campus programmes internationally.

Currently, the Institute is running MBA (International Business) at Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania, Africa, in collaboration with the Institute of Finance Management (IFM), Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania. MBA(IB) has been running in Tanzania since the year 2001.
