  • He has worked as a corporate executive in multiple companies.
  • He is a pioneer in the retail pharmacy business in India.
  • He is the author of several books.

[02:28] Why do we need to bring in more practitioners to business schools?

  • I went to do my MBA in 1979, and I chose Jamnalal Bajaj rather than going to an IIM.
  • Bajaj was the only institute then which had an amazing mix of professors who taught us all the basic requirements of the theory.
  • There was an incredible range of top corporate leaders who would come and help students to interpret everything.

[07:44] What value do you think theoreticians can add to the free knowledge available online?

  • An On-Campus or inside an institute classroom gives us the ability to sit with peers.
  • It gives you the network and the desire to belong to an institute.
  • The network is a very powerful tool for any business school.
