Developing a new generation of management educators for a new generation of leaders


CEEMAN International Management Teachers Academy (IMTA) provides a unique opportunity for young faculty to develop their curricula, course design, teaching materials and particularly teaching skills and methods. The program is heavily based on the case method, including teaching with cases, case writing, and performance evaluation and feedback to students. It is also designed to improve competences and skills integral to specific managerial disciplines, and provides input essential in other areas of a faculty member’s professional life, such as consulting, institution development and administration, and social responsibility.

The exchange of ideas and experience with colleagues from other countries is also an invaluable source of learning, and an effective instrument in establishing professional contacts and networks.
According to post-program feedback received from IMTA participants and their institutions, the effects of the program go far beyond individual professional career development. Its benefits also include an impact on the participants’ institutions and their respective stakeholders.

  • The most frequently stated program results are:
  • improved educational skills
  • development of new teaching materials
  • new research project and doctoral thesis leads
  • student (customer) satisfaction
  • international case competition awards to IMTA alumni
  • contribution to institution building
  • greater international cooperation, faculty networking, and exchange

IMTA is an intensive and highly interactive two-week program with a well-balanced focus on general and discipline-specific aspects of management education.

Week 1: focuses on common issues related to general aspects of management education, with special emphasis on the case method and project work. It also deals with the skills required in the multiple roles of faculty. Innovations in management development are discussed in the context of IT, project-based education, and the integration of the arts, culture, and science.

Week 2: structured into disciplinary tracks, such as Business in Society, Marketing Management, Leading Change, and Strategic and International Management, when participants focus on requirements and opportunities more specific to their particular disciplines. Pre-program individual preparation and in-program lectures and discussions, individual preparation, small group discussions and teamwork, case discussions, simulations, role-play, presentations, and other work methods position IMTA participants at the center of the learning process.

More detailed program will be provided to participants at a later stage.
