April 26, 2019: The Federation on Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) has signed a memornadum of understanding (MoU) with LN Welingkar Institute of Management Development & Research, (WeSchool) at Mumbai, to launch a post graduate programme in foreign trade management (PGP-FTM). The first batch will commence from August 2019.
The MoU was inked by Khalid M Khan, regional chairman, FIEO (WR) and Uday Salunkhe, group director of WeSchool.
The MoU, an industry-academia partnership, aims to jointly develop and deliver the course, which shall endeavour to develop the human capital for meeting the growing demand in international trade ecosystem. The programme will broadly encompass the general management principles, export import procedures, foreign trade management techniques and international marketing concepts.
Speaking on the occasion Khan, said, "Academia and industry are two different worlds which are operating in isolation, both unaware of the requirements of each other. Considering the dynamic business environment and increase in demand for skilled and industry ready professionals, there is a need to develop a course that imparts both theoretical concepts and practical know-how."
The course will equally benefit professionals working in the area of International Trade and also students aspiring to pursue a career in Export or Imports. The duration of the programme will be 11 months.
