University of Virginia Darden School of Business and the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) have inked a new partnership recently. “By linking two strong programmes together, we will solidify links that foster student-exchange, joint case-writing and research,” said Peter Rodriguez, Darden’s associate dean for international affairs and director of Darden’s Tayloe Murphy Center International. Tayloe Murphy International Fellowships will bring young IIMA faculty to Darden for a month to develop case-teaching and case-writing skills.

IIM A provides international opportunities and develops programmes to enhance understanding of international issues. “We hope to enter more such collaborations to facilitate several activities in area of joint case writing and research, given that both Darden and IIM Ahemedabad uses this method,” hopes professor Samir Barua, the IIMA director.
