President and CEO of Pepsi Co., Ms. Indra Nooyi, was one of the distinguished guests at Yale – Great Lakes First International Conference. Though she did not stay back for long, but marked her presence with some intelligent and witty quotes. As a member of Board of Yale University, she said that she would make sure Yale – Great Lakes Centre achieve stardom in field of Management Research.
The International Conference on “Global Mindset Indian Roots” was a run away success with Academicians from across the globe presenting their cases. We had professors from Kellogg, Standford, North Carolina, University of Toronto, Georgia State, ISB, IIM A, IIM B, MDI, XLRI, IITs to name a few. People from industry also were present with speakers from Preferred Brands International, TCS, Hexaware, Orchid, Delta Management USA and Reliance Industries.
The conference marks the first step towards providing a platform for Management Research on India. With Dr Venkat Krishnan (Director Yale – Great Lakes Center) at the helm of the research center, i am sure Great Lakes is all set to have another feather in its cap at such an early stage of its evolution.
