The board of IIM-Ahmedabad Society appoints Errol D'Souza, a professor of economics at the IIM-A, Director-In-Charge of the institute
New Delhi: Errol D’Souza, a professor of economics at the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIM-A), was on Wednesday appointed Director-In-Charge of the institute.
“Kumar Mangalam Birla, chairman of the Board - IIM-A Society today announced the appointment of Professor Errol D’Souza as Director-in-charge, IIM Ahmedabad effective Saturday, September 2, 2017," the elite B-School said in a statement.
The incumbent Ashish Nanda, who resigned in the last week of April, will relinquish office on 1 September. Nanda, a former professor at Harvard Law School, was the first professor from a foreign school to head an IIM. His resignation came as a surprise as he decided to quit a year before his tenure was to expire.
Before joining IIM-A in 2001, D’Souza, an expert in macroeconomics, development finance and public policy, was the IFCI Chair Professor at the Department of Economics, University of Mumbai, a Visiting Scholar at Columbia University, New York, and a Visiting Senior Fellow at National University of Singapore.
He has earlier worked for the erstwhile Planning Commission and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in consulting roles.
