The following are professors at NMIMS Mumbai who missed out on winning the title of InsideIIM's Professor of The Year in 2020, but are loved by NMIMS students:
Dr Sreeram Sivaramakrishnan: His way of teaching brings method to the madness that is there in the Marketing curriculum. It is highly structured and examples and case intensive, cases which are very relevant to the students.
Prof. Chandrima Sikdar: The sheer passion with which she teaches and the amount of energy she carries while teaching is just fabulous. She has that art of making something Economics sound stimulating for someone like me who comes from an engineering background and no prior course on economics. She takes everything to real life, asks us to question our beliefs and intervenes to give her inputs in our quest of discussion-based learning.
