Round table conference The Future of Higher Education in India with special reference to Management Education

Dr. Shyam Sundar - James L. Frank Professor of Accounting, Economics & Finance at Yale School of Management and Fellow of Whitney Humanities Center, spoke about about the Future of Higher Education In India with a special reference to Management Education. Dr. Shyam Sunder is a world-renowned accounting theorist and experimental economist. He is a pioneer in the fields of experimental finance and experimental macroeconomics.

In India only 16000 PhD’s per year are awarded as compared to 10 million students in high school in an academic year. Some of the main reasons for individuals not wanting to pursue a PhD in India are that apart from taking time, the quality of research is perceived to be poor and Indian PhD commands a low market value as per a survey done with students of IIT Delhi, Kanpur and Bombay.

Mr. P. Murari, Advisor to President FICCI, delivered the Presidential address. This was followed by the panel discussion, with eminent people such as Mr. Anand Sudarshan – Former MD CEO Manipal Education, Dr. Shyam Sunder – James L. Frank Professor of Accounting, Economics & Finance - Yale School of Management, Dr. Bala V. Balachandran – Founder & Dean Great Lakes Institute of Management, Chennai and Mr. Mohan Lakhamraju, Vice Chairman, Great lakes Institute of Energy Management & Research taking part in the discussion.
