How we differentiate ourselves

We deliver our programme using a learning methodology which is different from other institutions – we are far more experiential in nature, focused on action learning. To have impact, we rely less on lectures that are class model and more on discovery-based and action learning – which allows delegates to learn by doing as well as by experiencing for themselves.


Strategic Partnerships

In order to deliver on our strategic objectives, IIBM takes the partnership / joint ventures approach with carefully selected associates who are aligned with IIBM’s values and teaching methodologies. These partnerships form a critical part of our value chain and enables us to deliver on the exact needs of our clients.
