Faculty forms one of the most important part of any good B School. At Great Lakes we get top of the bracket faculty, unmatched knowledge creators. We are on the verge of completion of term 1 and so i thought i will write about the people who have played a major role in increasing our knowledge level.
To Start with we have PGPM Director Mr Venkat Krishnan, from XLRI,who taught us Philosphy in term 1 and though i am not a fan of the subject, we had some of the best times in his sessions when we discussed abt atmans, souls, subtle bodies and bla bla. And i am sure not one Great Laker would forget his fav line” Then you are a Buffalo”:) For more abt him http://www.rkvenkat.com/
We Play the number game with Proff PKV who has enthralled us with loads of exciting and highly motivating sessions. He is the one behind the Statistics Sessions and has danced all through our classes, made us laugh and smile and still has been able to transfer loads and loads of knowledge.
My Fav.Subject,Marketing has been taught by Mr Paul Prabhaker, Associate Dean, Staurt B School, Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago. As per the credentials he has been one of the best teachers and one who has been able to keep people awake even in lengthy sessions. He has been extremely helpful all through out and has been able to create lots of awareness. For more http://www.stuart.iit.edu/faculty/fulltime_bios.asp?ProfID=18
Mr Raghu Iyer from SP Jain Mumbai made us go through the basics of Financial Accounting and was very very intersting. I am sure he did make finance look much easier than what it actually would be.All credit to him:)
National Income and GDP/GNP and similar words are being taught to us by Proff Rakesh Singh. Though we havent been able to become eco-savvy but definetly he has been able to direct us towards the goal!
To end the term one we had Prof SuryaShekhar from Florida University. He had tremendous ability to mix humor with transfer of knowledge. He was very helpful all through out and showed dedication towards making us learn US GAAP.
All these Prof’s are best in their related departments of education but the striking feature was that they came down to our level and helped us improve our intellectual abilities. Another thing which impressed me the most was their humble and helpful attitude.
With Performance expectations increases,so has been the case with Great Lakes! Awaiting better and better faculties in near future:)
