The programs will train prospective services professionals in industrial engineering, computer science, operations research and other fields, using real businesses as case studies.
IBM’s CEO Sam Palmisano is currently on a tour of China and while in Beijing, said “We strongly believe that development of an effective services science curriculum in Chinese universities will have a direct impact on China’s economic growth.”
In the past 12 years IBM has spent US$180 million collaborating with education organizations.
