On the occasion of Teacher’s Day, 5 September 2022, the Institute announced the creation of the Kamla Chowdhry Communications Hub, named after its first faculty member, Professor Kamla Chowdhry, and her outstanding contribution to IIMA’s growth and success. She was a member of the IIMA Society and the first faculty nominee to be appointed on the IIMA Board in 1962. She was a brilliant teacher and the author of the pioneering 3TP Senior Management Development Program that gave the IIMA a leading edge in executive education.
The Kamla Chowdhry Communications Hub will play a central role in consolidating IIMA’s leadership in management education and research, as well as promoting the IIMA brand through a portfolio of communication and marketing engagements. The Hub will function as a unified unit serving the Institute’s and all of its internal and external stakeholders’ needs. One of its top priorities will be to significantly enhance the IIMA brand globally. Its mandate includes bringing in best practices and innovative ideas to assist the Institute in communicating, engaging, and influencing in the ever-changing digital world.
The Hub is taking shape, by support and donation from Roopa and Vivek Kudva, both belong to the PGP 1986 batch. Sharing their views on supporting the creation of the Communications Hub, “IIMA aspires to enhance its pre-eminence in management education and research globally. The establishment of the Kamla Chowdhry Communications Hub will support this endeavour by increasing investments in communications and marketing. As proud alumni of the institute, we feel privileged to support the hub. Naming the hub after Professor Chowdhry is an opportunity to recognise and honour her seminal and foundational contributions to the Institute.”
