The Chairs set up by IMT within the framework of corporate patronage are a part of the institutional policy of the Institut, forming a standalone offering in their own right, alongside and complementary to research contracts.
In this respect, for IMT the Chairs are a key channel through which to open up to the driving forces of society and the business world, as well as being key showcases for the Institut. Their strategic contribution to the Institut is all the more important in a context in which it carries out its missions via partnerships with various circles.
The flexibility of the Chairs in terms of structure and operation makes them a program that can easily be adapted within the graduate schools of the Institut.
The Chairs are backed by one or several schools. Whatever their nature, they contribute new ideas to initial and executive education courses, helping to train professionals capable of responding to the issues to be faced in the future.
