Professional Life

The chronicles of my Academic Career

The Academic Career  

This section chronicles my work so far at IIMR, IIMK, XLRI and LBSNAA along with my sabbaticals. Again this is a section that keeps expanding upon. As and when I undertake new adventures in the professional sphere, I shall endeavor to refresh it.


Director at IIMR

I joined Indian Institute of Management Raipur (IIMR) in March 2022 as Director.

Keep watching this space for updates.


Professor at IIMK

I joined Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (IIMK) in May 2019 as a Professor. I prodly served as the Head of the Centre for Governance.

Professor at LBSNAA (Public Administration)

In July 2012, I left XLRI to join The Lal Bahadur Shastri Academy for Administration in Mussoorie as a proud servant of the Government of India. At LBSNAA I primarily designed and taught the Management Module for Civil Service Officers.

Professor at XLRI

Before joining the IIMK, I have taught at the XLRI Xavier School of Management, Jamshedpur, India for nearly two decades, starting from 2001. Over the years I’ve taught several courses at XLRI.


Curriculum Vitae

Over the years I’ve taught several courses, and in the past two years been teaching finance at IIMK, though my work has never been limited to teaching.

I am currently heading the Governance Centre at IIM K. My detailed CV will give a more comprehensive idea about my education, qualifications, interest and other endeavours.


I took few sabbaticals over the years. The first was a short sojourn with the SP Jain Center for Management (SPJCM) in 2007-08, and recently to the Lal Bahadur Shastri National School of Administration (LBSNAA), Mussoorie (2012-14).

The Early Career

Fresh out of Engineering College I ended up in Bokaro after a short stint in Delhi as a Technical Management Trainee. My earlier experiences instilled in me a sense of financial independence and taught me to value all kinds of work.


My Teaching Ambitions

I have been fond of learning... The impression that my teachers and mentors left on me, is the kind of impression I wish to leave on my students.


Formal Feedback

While my teaching feedback has not been the highest among all the faculty teaching in a term or semester (typically, about 7-8 courses run at the same time at XLRI), yet it has never been the lowest as such.


Awards and Grants

Awards, Grants, and Honors that I am proud of, which includes popularity of my papers, case publications and accolades towards my other publications.
