IIMs are the country’s premier business school. A bill aimed at providing degree granting and other power to the IIMs is pending in Parliament. The government appointed directors of 10 Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs), including IIM Bangalore on Friday. Professor G Raghuram will be the director of IIM Bangalore, an order issued by the personnel ministry said.
There are 20 IIMs across the country. As many as 13 IIMs were running without a full-time director for sometime now and the issue was raised in Parliament too. An order issued by the Personnel Ministry said that Professor G Raghuram, a faculty member at IIM Ahmedabad since 1985 will be the Director of IIM Bangalore.
