IIM-L to offer Harvard’s course on competitiveness

Lucknow, Dec 15 (IANS) The Indian Institute of Management-Lucknow (IIM-L) will offer its students an elective course on ‘Microeconomics of Competitiveness’ in partnership with Harvard Business School (HBS).

Two IIM-L professors, Sanjay K. Singh and Ashutosh K. Sinha, had recently attended a workshop at HBS’ Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness (ISC) in the US to prepare for the course, the PR officer of the IIM said here on Tuesday.
