Meet Global Management Gurus at Goa Institute of Management (GIM)

Goa Institute of Management (GIM), one of the premier B-schools of India presently ranked among the top 20 management schools in the country is working towards a series of events which will involve celebrated global management thinkers. World-class management guru Dr. C.K Prahalad and Prof. Anoop Madhok from the York University, among others, will be part of this impressive initiative.

As part of the initiative, Dr. Prahalad will be travelling to Goa in the second week of January 2009 to speak at an event hosted by GIM on the theme Global Restructuring of Industries. Is there an India Advantage? Top notch industrialists, the corporate community, bureaucrats and students are expected to attend the prestigious event.

There is a significant restructuring of industries, be it the financial services, automation, pharmaceuticals, publishing or entertainment. Part of it is caused by the current financial crisis but the trends are as much driven by long term and enduring changes in technology, consumer expectations and globalization. Does the Indian industry have the unique opportunity to reposition itself in this process of global change? What are the advantages that the Indian industry can leverage? How will this transform emerging Indian multinationals and what impact will it have on western multinationals? All this and more will be debated at the convention.

Management Guru Dr. C.K Prahalad is a professor, researcher, speaker, author and prominent consultant who in addition to serving as the Harvey C. Freuhauf Professor of Business Administration at the University Of Michigan Business School, also specializes in corporate strategy for large diversified, multinational corporations. Dr. Prahalad is more than an academic, he is one of the foremost business thinkers of our times. A prominent figure, Dr. Prahalad has consulted with some of the world's foremost companies, such as Ahlstrom, AT&T, Cargill, Citicorp, Eastman Chemical, Kodak, Oracle, Philips, Quantum, Revlon, Steelcase, and Unilever. In addition, he serves on the Board of Directors of NCR Corporation, Hindustan Lever Limited and the World Resources Institute.

In its efforts to strengthen its existing visiting faculty, GIM has also invited Mr. Anoop Madhok a senior professor at the Schulich School of Business, York University to conduct lectures at the institute, while encouraging him to do a sabbatical in Goa. Mr. Madhok has taught extensively in management schools located in North American, Europe and Asia.

Says Mr. Alan D?Souza, Director, GIM of the association, "As part of our value system at GIM, we emphasis on providing a good quality education to our students. We encourage students to view an MBA degree/diploma not merely as a passport to a well paid job, but as a first step towards a good future career. Remuneration should come as a byproduct of value delivered. I?m sure our association with committed individuals such as Dr. C.K Prahalad and Mr. Anoop Madhok will add value to the institute". Alan D'Souza who has taken over as Director of GIM early this year is one of the Founders of the Mudra Institute of Communications, Ahmedabad (MICA) and has been instrumental in setting up MICORE, at Ahmedabad, the first Institute of its kind, dedicated to Communications Research.

The ambitious initiative is part of GIM?s constant efforts towards strengthening the institutes core competencies. In addition, the B-schools is working towards creating an excellent research culture, developing international collaborations with recognized management schools across the world, lectures and strengthening the existing team of core and existing faculty, among others areas.

Goa Institute of Management (GIM)

Fr. Romuald D'Souza, the then Director of XIM, Bhubaneshwar, together with a team of professionals and industrialists established the Goa Institute of Management in 1993 with the aim of spreading the wealth of management knowledge.

Over the years GIM has earned the enviable reputation of being one of the finest Management Schools in the country. The environment at GIM ensures high quality of learning. Through its rigorous admissions process, which is transparent and based solely on merit, the Institute ensures that the student community is committed to the learning process. The Institute imparts sound values to enable its students to become effective and good leaders while the infrastructure which is being constantlyupgraded ensures a comfortable working environment. The library, which is the heart of any institution, gets the maximum priority. Goa, with its natural God given beauty, in no small measure adds to this wonderful learning experience.
