KOZHIKODE: Prof Debashis Chatterjee assumed charge as director of the Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (IIMK) on Friday. This is his second term at IIM Kozhikode. The institute did not have a full-time director for nearly four years after Chatterjee completed his term from 2009 to 2014. IIMK is the first institute to appoint its own director autonomously after the President gave concurrence to the Indian Institute of Management Bill, 2017 on December 31.

During his last tenure, Chattterjee had transformed the face of IIM Kozhikode to an institution of national impact and global reckoning. He created history by increasing the enrolment of women up to 54 per cent in the flagship post graduate programme. 

“IIM Kozhikode will strive to make an enduring impact in solving industry, organisational and social problems and in uplifting the quality of management practices in India. Our very luminous mission of ‘Globalising Indian Thought’ is the DNA of all that we will aspire for in the future,” Chatterjee said after assuming charge.
