IIMB reports on Devanath Tirupati’s comments during a panel at Yale with other Global Network deans.
"Growth, over the last 20 years, in India, has created a lot of contradictions in our economy and the leaders of tomorrow need to set-up business in such a space," said Professor Devanath Tirupati, Dean Academic and Director In-charge of Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) at the 'Business + Society: Leadership in an Increasingly Complex World' conference at the Yale School of Management on January 10, 2014.
When asked how many students have global aspirations, Professor Tirupati replied, "About 90% are keen, but only 20-25% are successful. The Global Network of Advanced Management is making multi-lateral education possible through network courses. The team formation exercises with students of other nationalities are helping them learn. And in turn, we are preparing them for the Indian context also."
