Rajat Gupta, former managing director (worldwide) of McKinsey & Company; N R Narayana Murthy, Chairman, Infosys Technologies Limited; and Dr C Rangarajan, former Governor of Andhra Pradesh, will teach at the Indian School of Business this year.
The three will teach as Professors of Management Practice.
Located in Hyderabad, the Indian School of Business is a management institution that offers a one-year post graduate programme; short-duration executive education programmes for chief executive officers and senior executives and a two-year research fellowship programme.
It has a partnership with the Kellogg School of Management, The Wharton School and London Business School.
This year, the two-year old institution, is introducing a new faculty position called 'Visiting Professor of Management Practice.'
Eminent industry leaders and professionals are expected to be invited to join the faculty of the ISB to share their practical experiences and learnings, by offering either full credit courses or 'expert modules' for the post graduate programme in management, or through short-term executive education programmes.
"Inviting leading management practitioners to teach current management practices is a trend followed by the best business schools across the world. After all, the best teachers of management practice are its real-world practitioners, and better still when the teachers are leaders
of international standing and repute," said Vijay Mahajan, Dean, Indian School of Business.
Rajat Gupta, who is also the chairman of the board of the Indian School of Business, will develop and teach modules on 'Competitive Strategies in the Global Market.'
Narayana Murthy and C Rangarajan will teach elective courses on 'Leadership & Corporate Responsibility' and 'Understanding Economics in a Developing Economy,' respectively.
