NEW DELHI, DECEMBER 12: Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) and CoWrks India Private Limited signs an MoU to engage into a long term strategic partnership. The areas of collaboration includes that of Executive Education, Startup Support & Incubation and IIMA Alumni Engagement.

Speaking on the occasion Prof. Rakesh Basant, Dean-Alumni and External Relations of IIMA said, “IIMA plans to expand its activities in the areas of executive education and entrepreneurship and at the same time deepen its engagement with the alumni. The IIMA-CoWrks partnership is ideal to implement these plans in a synergistic fashion as alumni can use various centres of CoWrks across the country to meaningfully engage with each other and also contribute to executive education and entrepreneurship related activities of the Institute.”

IIMA would collaborate with CoWrks to conduct research, develop case studies on mutually agreed subjects. These subjects may include the gig economy, future of work, workspace design, workforce productivity, impact of co-working and freelancing on urban work etc.

Nruthya Madappa, Managing Partner, The CoWrks Foundry said, “CoWrks being the preferred choice for large enterprises and Startup unicorns, we're looking forward to offering cutting edge, continuous support to our pan Indian community in collaboration with IIMA. We are excited to foster this shared purpose of supporting entrepreneurship and business with the best university in the country.”


IIMA will provide the academic and training expertise for the programs while CoWrks will support the successful implementation of the programs with its infrastructure and operational expertise. IIMA has wide network of distinguished alumni, offers a variety of executive education programs and is well known in the incubation and entrepreneurship space through the work of its Centre for Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE).

The Institute will use CoWrks centres in Bengaluru, Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai and other upcoming locations to offer executive education programs. This will be done in a phased manner, depending on market response and other factors.
