Meeting in England marks start of new cycle of International Program for Managers
Alexandre Faria, a professor from FGV’s Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE) and Coordinator of the International Masters Program for Managers (IMPM) in Brazil, participated in Cycle 22 of the program as a new member of its Academic Coordination and as a visiting professor in the first module, which took place at Lancaster University in September.
For more than 20 years, the IMPM has been developing a differentiated approach to learning, mobilized mainly by professor Henry Mintzberg, from McGill University (Canada), and continuously developed by the Academic Coordination based at Lancaster University. In his new position, professor Alexandre Faria participated in the Academic Committee meeting, chaired by professor Martin Brigham (Lancaster University) in September. At the Quarry Bank Mill facilities on the outskirts of Manchester, Faria joined the faculty of the module in Lancaster to conduct the session “Continuity and Change in Management, Business and Society”, alongside professors Alan Engelstad (McGill University), Kentaro Iijima (Yokohama University) and Martin Brigham (Lancaster University).
Engaging the participants, the EBAPE professor historicized the industrial revolution from a decolonial perspective to conclude that academic programs should foster rigorous historical reflections to promote changes that supersede the permanence of slavery and the patriarchate in the various areas of management.
The IMPM classes comprise experienced professionals, entrepreneurs and executives from various types of organizations and from all over the world. The Reflective Mindset Module was held at Lancaster University, from September 16 to 25. In January 2019, the 30 participants from European, African, Asian and North American countries, as well as three Brazilians, will meet again at McGill University, in Canada, for the Analytic Mindset Module. The Collaborative Mindset Module will take place in Japan at Yokohama University in May; in October, EBAPE will host the Action Mindset Module; and in January 2020, the Worldly Mindset Module will happen in Bangalore, India – closing Cycle 22.
