Ode to Prof Ranjan Das - IIM C | The Strategy Academy

Ode to Prof Ranjan Das The Strategy Academy


I just finished my last blog entry and saw this Google Adsense ad of The Strategy Academy on my blog. And the first thing I remembered was Prof. Ranjan Das.

Anybody who would have studied at IIM Calcutta couldn’t have missed one personality on campus: Prof. Ranjan Das.

The One man who is passionate about education and strategy, and who with his charismatic leadership has helped so many leaders worldwide to excel in there careers. He has finally fulfilled his dream of entrepreneurship and started his own college, The Strategy Academy at this age.

I remember the time when he last spoke to me addressing the class and mentioning about his new venture of the Strategy Academy where he wanted to show the world a new path of why Strategy is important and how it is relevant in today’s business. He categorically said, you need to identify and challenge the status quo and finally move ahead to the desired state.

This is a perfect example of how leaders stand by there words and how Prof. Das has converted his vision into reality.

Hats off to you sir!

Dear Sachin

I fully go with you. I met Professor Das first in 1998. He used to come to facilitate the corporate executive committe meetings of our company. We still use that forum. Though he doesnot come now so frequently his ideas helped us transform our company to a great extent. Yes, he truly deserves a "BIG SALUTE" ... Ibrahim from Dhaka

Dear Sachin,
Prof Ranjan Das left an indelible mark in my mind. oh what an inspiring teacher he is/was.

I did One Year Special Management Program (SMP) during 2000-2001. I belong to Second batch. This modular teaching program was totally conceived by prof Ranjan Das. Now see its brand value.After 10 years. Salute the professor who ignited that passion for strategic thinking in his lectures.
