Mr Simon Flemington, CEO of LSE Enterprise and Professor Alejandro Hernández, Provost of the research university Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México, have recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding for an executive education programme between the two institutions. The International Political Economy Programme will commence in summer 2013, with a group of students from ITAM visiting LSE to receive a mixture of specialist lectures, private seminars and corporate visits during the three weeks in London. The programme has been designed by LSE specifically for ITAM. It will provide students with a thorough understanding of key trends in global political economy and encourage leadership based on high-quality evidence and rigorous debate.
Simon Flemington says: ‘I am delighted to be working with one of the foremost higher education institutions in Mexico, as part of our increasing Hispano American activity. I look forward to welcoming our first ITAM students to LSE later this year and hope that the programme will benefit both them and their region.’
