IMTA - International Management Teachers Academy

June
2019

Bled, Slovenia

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

About

The International Management Teachers Academy (IMTA) provides a unique opportunity for young faculty to develop and improve their curricula, course design, teaching materials and particularly teaching skills and methods. CEEMAN's flagship 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 to 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 feedback received by 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 projects and doctoral thesis leads
  • increased student (customer) satisfaction
  • international case competition awards won by IMTA alumni
  • contribution to institution building
  • greater international cooperation, faculty networking, and exchange

See the list of institutions that have entrusted us with developing their faculty.

Reflections on the IMTA Journey

Alumni Association

The IMTA Alumni Association consists of more than 600 graduates, representing 165 institutions and 51 countries. This alumni network is a powerful platform for further professional development, experience exchange, joint projects and initiatives, and a strong contributor to institutional development.

Program  

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 that faculty members tend to have. 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 is structured into disciplinary tracks, such as Business in Society, Marketing Management, Leading Change, and Strategic and International Management. During this second stage of the program 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.

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