These Research Associates (RAs) and Academic Associates (AAs), who have worked in the School in the last few years, deserve special recognition.

Researchers expressed their gratitude to their advisors in the ceremony. “It has been exactly one year since I joined ISB. I had applied to 15 schools the previous year and was rejected by all. I attribute my success to my advisors, Professor Anand Nandkumar and Professor Raveendra Chittoor in the Strategy area. Once you are in ISB, you have access to all the resources you need to make it to a PhD program of your choice,” shared Arun Patro, a jubilant researcher with eight offers in hand.
