It's good news for local business as the Cork Business Association (CBA) and the Irish Marketing Institute (IMI) enter a new partnership.

The partnership will see the IMI and CBA work together to share information on executive development programmes running in Cork, allowing the CBA to provide its members with access to world-class professional development.

Lawrence Owens, Chief Executive of the CBA, said: “This partnership between the CBA and the IMI allows for the creation and nurturing of an active community for business professionals in Cork. It’s the CBA’s goal to now take full advantage of this progressive partnership with the IMI and work together towards ensuring Cork has the highest level of business professionals in the country.”

Founded by business leaders for business leaders, the IMI has been in operation for over sixty years and was this year officially ranked as one of the top 50 executive education institutes in the world by the Financial Times.

The IMI can provide access to high-impact short programmes in Cork for developing owners, managers and senior leaders, as well as access to their own in-depth professional diploma programmes that can be completed as part of a flexible development journey to achieving a master’s qualification.

Speaking of the new partnership, Ciara Kissane, IMI’s Business Development Manager for the Munster region, said: “IMI is delighted with the partnership with the CBA.

“We are committed to supporting individuals, organisations and industry as a whole and we see this partnership with the CBA as instrumental in engaging with and supporting local businesses in Cork,” she said.

IMI and UCC merged in 2016, allowing them access to UCC’s expert research faculty and an international network of thought leaders.

The IMI and the CBA plan to bring the best practice and the latest trends in leadership development to their members via a bespoke event later this year.
