IIM Indore Takes a Step Ahead for Cross-Border Land Port Management Training


MUMBAI: In a significant move towards advancing educational collaboration in land port management, IIM Indore has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Land Port Authority of India (LPAI). This landmark agreement aims to bolster learning and development initiatives in land port management and operations, not only within the borders of India but also extending to neighboring countries like Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, among others.
The MoU was signed by IIM Indore’s Director, Prof. Himanshu Rai, Director, and Mr. Ajeet Kumar Singh, Director, Operations, LPAI, on April 2, 2024. Prof. Manish Popli, Faculty, IIM Indore and Mahesh Kumar, Advisor (Training) at LPAI were also present on this occasion.
Expressing enthusiasm about this collaboration, Prof. Rai emphasized the institution’s commitment to contributing to nation-building through targeted educational interventions. He stated, “IIM Indore is proud to embark on this journey of collaboration with the LPAI. This MoU signifies our dedication to empower not only the Indian government and administrative departments, and LPA officers in neighboring countries with relevant and industry-focused education and training programmes. While we will train LPAI leadership, we will train land port officials of other countries, together.”
Under this MoU, IIM Indore will conduct physical and online training programmes, develop curriculum and training modules, conduct research studies, and organize seminars and conferences. “Our aim is to enhance executive education programmes on general management and domain-specific to land ports, develop content to serve as a knowledge repository, and host annual seminars with invited speakers to disseminate valuable insights. Our students will also get a chance to do internship with LPAI,” he added.
Singh, too, expressed his delight at the collaboration with IIM Indore. He remarked, “We are delighted to partner with IIM Indore, a renowned institution known for its academic excellence. This collaboration will immensely benefit the Land Port Authorities in terms of capacity building and skill enhancement”. The expertise of IIM Indore’s faculty in areas of management will undoubtedly contribute to optimizing the operations of land ports, thereby facilitating smoother trade and commerce, he added.
The three-year MoU signed between IIM Indore and LPAI marks a significant step towards
elevating the standards of land port management education and fostering cross-border
cooperation. Through this partnership, both entities are poised to create a lasting impact on
the efficiency and effectiveness of land port operations, thereby driving economic growth and
development in the region.
