The Indian School of Business (ISB) and the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) have joined hands to promote teaching excellence amongst Indian B Schools. ISB and IIM-B will organise the 'ISB-IIMB Doctoral Consortium on Teaching' for doctoral candidates who are about to start their careers as faculty at Indian B-Schools, ISB said in a release. "The ISB-IIMB Consortium is a fine example of how collaboration among Indian B-Schools can raise the bar for management education in India," professor Arun Pereira of ISB said. Led by Arun Pereira, Executive Director of the Centre for Learning and Management at the ISB, and Sourav Mukherji, Dean of Academic Programmes at IIMB, the Consortium had participation from doctoral candidates at ISB, IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore, IIM Lucknow, IIM Indore, and IIM Kozhikode among others. Now in its fourth year, the Consortium was for the first time organised jointly by the two B-Schools, at ISB's Hyderabad campus. The programme is targeted at final year FPM /PhD/Doctoral candidates to help them get a head start as they begin their careers. "While several doctoral consortia have in the past focused on enhancing much needed research skills, the uniqueness of this programme lies in its focus on teaching, which given the enormous shortage of high quality business school faculty, caters to an important national agenda," Sourav Mukherji, Dean of Academic Programmes at IIMB, and one of the lead faculty for the programme, said. The Doctoral Consortium was supported and funded by the International Schools of Business Management (ISBM).
