Coforge Limited, a global digital services and solutions provider has announced its partnership with the Mack Institute for Innovation Management at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.

According to an official release, the Mack Institute for Innovation Management supports industry and academic communities to transform innovation research into real-world impact. The institute advances knowledge in four areas: innovation opportunities, strategies for innovating, leading and organizing for innovation, and capturing economic value from innovation investments.

The partnership aims to shape the content of whitepapers, research papers, and books written by faculty and students at Wharton. The two research topics that have been finalised at the onset of this programme are ‘The Future of Insurance’ and ‘Metaverse Use Cases’. Students from the MBA class and a few undergraduates will participate in the research on these topics for approximately one semester (15 weeks), for which they will receive course credit.

Under the partnership, Coforge will also participate in the various roundtables, programmes, and seminars that will be conducted by the institute. These events are typically symposiums on specific subjects or small conferences to which representatives from various organisations are invited.

“More than ever, companies are seeking the innovation that will elevate their companies to the next level competitively,” Vic Gupta, chief technology officer, Coforge, said. “Our partnership with the Mack Institute gives us the opportunity to work with the next generation of innovators, helping us jointly develop insights that will deliver that competitive advantage to our clients worldwide,” he added.
