“This is a platform of cross-culture learning which will give a lot of exposure to the 30 students representing schools from abroad,” Prof Sarkar said. Apart from taking stock of the situation around the globe and what happened last year, the board meeting also had a session with corporates from the city.

“This (meeting) will provide our students with an opportunity to receive the highest quality of world class exposure. At the same time, the entire exercise will widen the horizon of minds of all those who are involved in the student board,” he said. IIM-C formed an alliance with CEMS in 2013 with an aim to establish itself as a global institution and as a step towards becoming an institute of management of international repute.
