Rohtak: P. Rameshan, from the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Kozhikode, on November 16 took over as director of the newly established IIM-Rohtak in Haryana.
A Ph.D. in Economics from IIT-Kharagpur, Rameshan was coordinating the activities of the Centre for Strategic WTO (World Trade Organization) Research at IIM-Kozhikode. He had earlier served at IIM-Lucknow.
Interacting with faculty members after taking over, Rameshan expressed his commitment to develop the newly established business school into a world class management institution. Rohtak is some 70 km from Delhi.
IIM-Rohtak commenced operation in July this year, with a batch of 50 students. Since its own campus is yet to be established, classes are held at the Maharishi Dayanand University (MDU) campus in Rohtak.
