BIMACC Partnership Program

In partnership with the Bangalore International Mediation, Arbitration, and Conciliation Centre (BIMACC) in Bangalore, India, Chicago-Kent will offer eligible students the opportunity to enroll in one, two or three courses in the online Certificate in Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) with a special tuition discount. Students will receive a certificate of completion for each course taken. Students who complete all three courses will receive the Certificate in Intellectual Asset Management and will be eligible for a partial tuition scholarship for the Master of Intellectual Property Management and Markets program. Chicago-Kent will confirm eligibility with BIMACC for all prospective students who apply through this program.

To apply, you must submit the online application form, a personal statement, resume and copies of your undergraduate and graduate transcripts. As part of the online application process, you will be able to indicate that you are applying through the BIMACC partnership program and can indicate which course(s) you wish to take as part of the program.
