Washington, Aug 5 — About half a dozen eminent global management gurus, including two professors from North America, head for New Delhi this week to debate the future of Indian management education at the Third Indian Management Conclave.
Sharing their insights at the Aug 9-10 conclave with nearly 300 policy makers, academics and recruiters will be Cornell Dean Soumitra Dutta and Sauder School of Business, Canada Associate Dean Murali Chandrashekharan.
They will be joined at the MBAUniverse.com organized conclave by international thought-leaders Elieen Peacock, Asia Head, AACSB, Singapore and Sharon Bamford, Chief Executive of Associations of MBAs (AMBA), UK.
Dutta, who recently moved from Fontainebleau, the home of INSEAD's Europe campus to take over as Anne and Elmer Lindseth Dean and Professor of Management at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at America's Ivy League Cornell University, will deliver the keynote address.
"Globally, MBA Education is at crossroads. The changes in business, society, technology...are calling for new models. In this evolution, India can play an important role by being both the 'creator' and the 'lab' for next-generation management ideas," he says.
Indian Management Conclave, as knowledge creation and dissemination platform, can be a catalyst of this process."
