What The InsideIIM Professor of The Year Series Is About
In the last year, the whole country struggled in coping up with the pandemic and lockdowns. In this time of crisis, it was the great leadership shown by our teachers and professors to ensure that learning never stops. They went beyond just teaching and found solutions and created new learning environments for their students to continue learning.
We at InsideIIM want to recognize the efforts that various B-School professors throughout the country put in to ensure that their students are not left behind and continue to meet their potential and achieve great things. This is why we asked MBA students of the current batches in 2021 to nominate their favorite professors on campus for the title of 'Professor of The Year' as a small token of gratitude for professors who have made so many efforts in the last year, just so that students can head out to etch a successful career for themselves!
