Anuj was the unanimous choice of the search-cum-selection committee
Despite being the oldest B-school in the country, in its five decades of existence, the Indian Institute of Management-Calcutta (IIM-C) has never had a woman at the helm of its academic affairs.
Now, after five decades IIM-Calcutta has welcomed its first ever woman director, with Professor Anju Seth taking over from Saibal Chattopadhyay. Screened by a search panel that was appointed by the board of governors of the institution, Seth was a frontrunner amongst the shortlisted academicians, before she was finally confirmed.
“We are indeed delighted that Anju will be the first woman director of the IIM-C. She was the unanimous choice of the search-cum-selection committee and the Board of Governors,” said Shrikrishna Kulkarni, an IIM-C board chairperson.
Interestingly, Seth is an alumna of the same institute and had pursued her MBA from 1978-79.
