IFIM Business School, Bengaluru, recently announced that Dr Atish Chattopadhyay has been appointed as the Director of the institute.

Commenting on his appointment, Dr Atish said, “IFIM Business School has a global outlook and is poised for quantum growth post AACSB accreditation. IFIM enjoys the locational advantage of being in Bengaluru, and a unique approach to teaching-learning where the students have the opportunity to customise their learning pathways. IFIM as an institution promotes academic entrepreneurship and encourages the faculty to innovate, experiment and disrupt the existing norms and conventions. I believe that existing models of academic value creation, including delivery, will get disrupted going forward, and academic institutions need to ready themselves for the needs of tomorrow. This is in line with IFIM’s vision of grooming professionals for new-age ventures.”

His zeal, enthusiasm, values and ability to innovate within the realm of academics will surely make IFIM Business School a frontrunner for nurturing tomorrow’s professionals.”

During his tenure at IMTG, the institute received the AACSB accreditation, bounced back to reclaim its position amongst the top 10 B-schools of the country, and saw the ‘Sustainability and Social Responsibility (SSR)’ initiative getting the ‘Innovations That Inspire’ award.
