The enthusiasm and receptivity of ITP participants is something I can always count on. I learn as much as I teach.”
Melvin Silberman, Professor of Adult and Organizational Development

”I directed ITP for three years at London Business School and I have worked on the Programme since then. It's so interesting to have a snap shot every year of Faculty from all around the world. I'm kept up to date on what the issues are for professionals in our field and I get to see what's going on in all the Schools represented.”

”ITP means a wonderful opportunity to share my ideas and experience about teaching with an outstanding group of enthusiastic colleagues!”
Pierre Dussauge, Professor of Strategic Management
HEC School of Management,

"I owe my professional progress to ITP. As a young teacher in Assam, India, I attended the programme in 1982 and it changed my life. The curriculum transformed everything I thought I knew about management education. ITP introduced me to new pedagogical tools and strategies, and it helped me see deeper connections between my teaching and research. Through the ITP, I also gained greater confidence in the classroom. ITP challenged and inspired me to explore my potential, even as I learned how to help others discover their potential. This is a wonderful programme for anyone who aspires to create and share knowledge with impact."
Dipak C. Jain, Dean, Sasin Business School, TH
