NEW DELHI: Indian Institute of Management Sirmaur (IIMS) collaborates with the University of Bordeaux and the University of Paris, France, to launch two new executive MBA programmes for the current academic year 2023. These are the general management course and digital transformation and analytics course.

The curriculum for two executive MBA courses will be based on a case-based teaching method. Students will have an option to attend the classes in hybrid mode.
