IIM Kozhikode becomes first IIM to appoint its own Director autonomously after Passing of IIM Bill

Published in Education Wednesday, 23 May 2018 16:47



IIM Kozhikode Board of Governors brings back Professor Debashis Chatterjee for a Second Term to helm IIM Kozhikode as its Director. IIM Kozhikode has been headless for several years after Prof. Chatterjee completed his tenure of five years from 2009-2014. Prof Chatterjee was the architect of the very rapid growth IIMK from a relatively obscure school to a globally accredited institution of national impact. He was instrumental in admitting more than 50% women in the Post Graduate Program---a trend setter among IIMs.

Prof. Chatterjee has been a Senior Professor and Dean (International Relations) at IIM Lucknow and is currently serving as Director General of IMI Delhi overseeing its 3 campuses. Professor Debashis Chatterjee has taught leadership classes at Harvard University and at the Indian Institutes of Management (IIM), Calcutta, Lucknow, and Kozhikode. He has been awarded the prestigious Fulbright Fellowship twice for Pre-Doctoral and Post-Doctoral work at the Harvard University. He is the author of seventeen books including Invincible Arjuna and Timeless Leadership. He has served as Dean of an international business school in Singapore. A prolific author, inspirational teacher and columnist, Prof. Chatterjee served as Independent Director on the Boards of several multinational and Indian Companies.
