ITP Today

Today the ITP is the leading management faculty development programme in the world. This flagship initiative has been going from strength-to-strength for more than 50 years with a consistent aspiration to develop faculties, share expertise and improve the quality of teaching across the world.

One of the long-established principles behind the success of the ITP has been a policy of rotation between the ISBM members. The ITP is managed by one of the ISBM schools for a period of two years, which ensures a continuous update of the programme’s content and ongoing cultural enrichment for its participants.

Our History

The ITP was founded by Harvard Business School in 1958 when, with financial backing from the Ford Foundation, a coordinated programme was set up to help train foreign faculties in the most effective learning and teaching processes. The very first class consisted of 18 participants from 12 different countries, supporting the HBS vision of extending top class international management education around the world, founding and nurturing business schools in India, Pakistan, Turkey, the Philippines, and Central America.

The programme extended into Europe in 1969 in Leysin, Switzerland, before seven more European management schools were invited to join in 1971 to further develop the ITP. This group of “consortium schools” formed the ISBM – International Schools of Business Management – a non-profit organisation in 1977. The consortium has been welcoming new member schools regularly; most recently, the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad, and the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS).

ISBM Schools

The member schools of ISBM along with EFMD are among the world’s leading educational institutions in the fields of business, management and leadership, located in Europe, North America and Asia.

Being an educator is not just about sharing knowledge; it is about making sure that learners truly integrate this knowledge. The ISBM schools all help support this principle through the ITP, and welcome a diverse range of learners, drawn from different fields of expertise, age, experience, motivation and cultural backgrounds, to develop a more enriching, constructive learning environment.
