Tada, Andhra Pradesh (India): Education institutions should keep the diversity of the country, said Chandra Kochhar, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, ICICI Bank. She was addressing the students, faculty and the board members of The Institute for Financial Management and Research ( IFMR) Chennai.
The function was part of the inauguration of IFMR’s new campus at Sri City, which lies near Tamil Nadu-Andhra border. She also said that Institutions should keep the consumers and their culture in mind while preparing the curriculum and teaching management students.

Kochhar said while India is a land of opportunity, for every good and fundamental strength that India has, there is an accompanying challenge. For instance the country has the potential of demographic dividend, while the corresponding dichotomy is that the challenge of making all of them employable and creating enough employment opportunities for them.

She said there is a substantial potential to invest in infrastructure and the manufacturing sector in the country, but today the new investments are not taking place since there is a need for more clarity on approval and policies. Time-bound approvals are needed and still a clarity comes in, the investment cycle would not return.

Morton Schapiro, President, Northwestern University, Illinois, USA will be the chief guest of the function. Inauguration of new world-class campus of IFMR at Sri city gave way to the 13th convocation of last year IFMR students. N. Vaghul, Chairman of the IFMR’s Board of Governors, in his welcome address, traced the history and evolution of the institute.. Sri City Managing Director Ravi Sannareddy called the establishment of the institute in a backward region as a significant step in meeting the educational and training needs of the industry and the region.

This article is written by IITians in theblog

If asked to compare IIT Bombay to IIT Delhi, most students say that the difference is negligible. Both are in metropolitan cities with good options for hostels, PG accommodations, food and entertainment. Cultural activities are equally good as is the faculty and study methodology. Even placements at the two IITS are amongst the best in the country. Yet figures indicate that the top JEE rank holders prefer Computer Science Engineering at IIT Mumbai rather than IIT Delhi.
