Educational Partnerships and Alliances with Educational Institutions
EENI (School of International Business) cooperates with educational institutions around the world (such
as Universities, Business Schools, Chambers of Commerce, Business Associations, and Institutions) in blended learning projects (e-learning + classroom
training) related to the foreign trade. EENI has educational partnerships with institutions in Europe, America, and Africa.
An e-learning project of international business involves a significant initial
investment in content development and platforms, author's royalties and copyrights, distance education methodology, and training of tutors. All this is the “core business” of EENI and what we can contribute to this kind of alliances.

Training in international business is increasingly complex. A master in foreign trade must have a global, regional, and local approach.
An Indian student who wishes to study a
Master in International Business should have:
- Global information: techniques of the foreign trade, International Marketing, internationalisation, foreign direct investment (FDI), business in China, Brazil, Russia, or emerging countries
- Regional information: Integration blocks and regional institutions of India (the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), the Bay of Bengal Initiative, the Asian Clearing Union, the Indian-Ocean Rim Association, or the Asia-Pacific Trade Agreement)
- Local information: India's Free Trade Agreements (FTA) (Sri Lanka, Singapore, Chile, the MERCOSUR, Korea, Pakistan, the European Union (EU), New Zealand, and Mauritius)
EENI’s courses and masters are adapted to more than 160 countries (including Free Trade Agreements (FTA), regional institutions, or integration blocks). Adaptations are available in several languages (English, Spanish, French, Chinese, and Portuguese.) (Summary of adaptation of the Master to the country of the student).
The main strength of EENI is specialisation in international trade.
Our international network of professors and scholars in foreign trade allow
us to offer tutoring from Europe, Africa, Asia or America.
A student of the master can study the unit “Business in China,” with a
Chinese professor, who speaks Chinese, English, or Spanish. Alternatively, for the unit “Business in Brazil,” has a Brazilian professor that also speaks English.
Distance Education Projects (e-learning and blended e-learning).
EENI offers to educational institutions the possibility of developing joint training programs (Courses, Postgraduate, Doctorates, and Masters in International Business) with certification/diploma of both institutions.
The training programs will be offered in distance learning (e-learning) or blended e-learning. The educational institution and EENI define the final
content of the training programme.
For example, in a
Professional Master's Program in International Business (blended e-learning), local institution can provide (classroom format) all his knowledge about his country to the contents of the master: customs, ports, legislation, documents, organisations related to the country's foreign trade, success stories of export enterprises, international economic relations of his country, etc.
Furthermore, the Institution can schedule visits to export companies, ports, customs, or to invite export managers. EENI provides e-learning part of the Master: digital contents, e-campus, online professors)
In a course on “Business Opportunities in Brazil,” the local
institution can provide a series of seminars about the relations of his country with Brazil, the particularities of a free trade agreement (tariff advantages, certificates of origin), or export logistics to Brazil, etc.
EENI brings all subjects (learning units) on “Doing Business in Brazil” and a professor in São Paulo.
Principles of partnership
To ensure the project success, two principles should be applied:
- Strategy WIN-WIN for both parties
- Focus GLOCAL = GLObal + Local. EENI provides the global/regional, the Institution the local (his country).
