Coforge Limited (NSE: COFORGE), a global provider of digital services and solutions, announced a partnership with the Mack Institute to the Innovation Management at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
The Mack Institute for Innovation Management supports industry and academic communities in putting innovation research into practice. The institute promotes knowledge in four areas: innovation opportunities, innovation strategies, leading and organizing innovation, and measuring the economic value of innovation investments.
The partnership provides Coforge with the ability to shape the content of white papers, research papers and books written by Wharton faculty and students. The two research topics completed at the start of this program are “The Future of Insurance” and “Metaverse Use Cases”. Students in the MBA class and a small number of undergraduate students will participate in research on these topics for approximately one semester (15 weeks) and receive credit for doing so.
As part of the partnership, Coforge will also participate in the various roundtables, programs and seminars run by the Institute. These events are usually themed symposia or small conferences to which representatives of different organizations are invited.
“More than ever, companies are looking for innovations that will take their businesses to the next level competitively,” said Vic Gupta, chief technology officer, Coforge. “Our partnership with the Mack Institute gives us the opportunity to work with the next generation of innovators and help us jointly develop insights that bring that competitive edge to our customers around the world.”
“We are very excited to have Coforge join our global learning network for scholars, business leaders and students,” said Valery Yakubovich, executive director of the Mack Institute. “In addition to our industry conferences and workshops, the Mack Institute offers companies the opportunity to interact with students and faculty about meaningful and impactful research on innovation management and strategies for success. We are confident that Coforge will benefit from our informative programs and look forward to them sharing their insights with our partner community.”
