WASHINGTON: Yet another top American business school may soon have an Indian at the helm.

Word in the B-school circuit is that Srikant M Datar, currently professor of accounting at Harvard Business School, heads the hot list of candidates tipped to succeed Kim Clark as the Dean of the venerable institution.

If Datar makes the grade, he will be the second Dean of Indian origin among the nation's top 3 B-schools. Dipak Jain became Dean of Kellogg School of Business in May 2001.

To my recollection, there are at least three or four other Deans of Indian-origin in American B-schools.

Earlier this year, Mahendra Gupta was appointed Dean of the Olin School of Business at Washington University in St Louis.

Read the rest here.

The journalist named a few others, but didn't think of our own B-School dean, Avijit Ghosh. Perhaps someone should write the writer!
