A five-member team of Indian School of Business (ISB) paid a two-day visit to Dhaka, aiming to develop partnership with business and academic institutions.
During their visit, Dean of ISB, Prof Rajendra Srivastava and (Visiting) Professor of Practice, Strategy and Marketing, Prof Nandu Nandkishore, conducted a masterclass in Dhaka on Thursday, in which about 180 senior executives from 50 industries and corporate houses participated.
Kedar Lele, managing director and CEO of Unilever Bangladesh, who studied in the ISB in 2004, hosted the session under the aegis of Foreign Investors' Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), Bangladesh.
Talking to The Daily Star yesterday, Prof Srivastava said they connected with important personalities in Bangladesh and discussed areas in which ISB can partner with local businesses, academic institutions and the government.
“ISB believes in working closely with our neighbours and towards that goal, we were in Dhaka to explore areas of cooperation... There are many things India and Bangladesh can learn from each other. ISB is keen to bridge this relationship,” said Srivastava.
