It will assist in raising the institution's profile in the worldwide market, boost the calibre of students at IIM-Shillong, and attract more foreign companies for hiring IIM-Shillong pass-outs. The collaboration's objective is to provide participants with the information they need to adopt an outcome-based learning method, which will teach them how to start, run, and grow their enterprises in the real world.”

This MoU, and the many others signed till date, will give faculty and learners at IIM-Shillong increased opportunities for travelling to, and working and studying in globally-reputed management institutes.
