IIM Bangalore To Celebrate 44th Foundation Day On October 28
Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Bangalore will celebrate its 44th Foundation Day on Saturday, October 28, 2017, with a plethora of events and activities on campus. The events include a panel discussion where former IIMB directors will share their views on 'Building the IIMB Institution', the Foundation Day Lecture and the Distinguished Alumni Awards (DAA) ceremony.
Prof. G. Raghuram, Director, IIMB, will present a report on the institute's achievements during the event. Between 5.30 pm and 6.30 pm, there will be a panel discussion on 'Building the IIMB Institution - A Director's Perspective', which will be moderated by Prof. Raghuram. The panelists will be former IIMB Directors.
This year's theme for the Foundation Day Lecture is 'Japan-India Relations in a New Era: Partnership for Prosperity' and the lecture will be delivered by the Chief Guest, H.E. Kenji Hiramatsu, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, Embassy of Japan in India, at the IIMB auditorium from 6.40 pm.
The presence of the Ambassador assumes significance for IIMB since it was on September 14 this year that IIMB inaugurated the India-Japan Study Centre.
He was appointed as Ambassador of Japan to India in November 2015 and to Bhutan in February last year. Prior to his appointment as Ambassador of Japan to India, he served as Deputy Vice-Minister for Foreign Policy from 2012 to 2015, where he was responsible for overall foreign policy making in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In this capacity, he played a central role in Japan's new landmark legislation for peace and security.
He was one of the authors of the first National Security Strategy in 2014.
The IIMB Foundation Day celebrations will also see Distinguished Alumni Awards (DAA) being conferred on Muralidhar Dhuddu (PGP 1977), Founder, SNAM Abrasives Pvt.
