The Indian Institute of Foreign Trade has extended beyond Delhi and has chosen West Bengal as the region to establish its first ever campus outside Delhi. The Government of West Bengal has allotted a land of 7 acres with a provision for further three acres in 2006 regarding the same. With the active support of both Central and State Governments, the Kolkata campus of IIFT will be operational from its own premises in this year. The new campus will be having all the state-of the art facilities for International Business education, training and research. In order to make the campus more relevant to the region, it is proposed to offer courses more specific to the region which can help the industry to get the right manpower addressing the current demands of the environment.
The flagship programme of IIFT which is MBA in International Business is already catering to the Pan-India requirements. Similarly, for the working executives, the Part Time programme for three years and diploma programme for eighteen months in International Business are already on offer. However it is proposed to launch two more new courses sensing the industry requirement of West Bengal region. The campus will offer Post Graduate Diploma in International Financial Operations and also a Certificate Programme in Export and Import Procedures and Documentation. Given the focus and priorities of both central and state governments these courses will help the working executives and the budding entrepreneurs from this region in acquiring the requisite skills to place them on the global industrial map.
Moreover, the IIFT campus at Kolkata houses a WTO cell to cater to the policy requirement for international business. This helps to enhance the capacities of bureaucrats and industries alike on policy and advocacy issues involving international business like WTO, FTA, and PTAs etc. This cell also caters to the specific policy research areas of both the state and central governments.
