The Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration of Chulalongkorn University in Thailand has appointed Professor Dipak C. Jain as the new Director of the institute.
Professor Dipak C. Jain was Chaired Professor of Marketing at INSEAD and served as Dean for INSEAD from 2011 to 2013 and for Kellogg School of Management from 2001 to 2009 where he joined the faculty in 1986. He has been a visiting professor of marketing at Sasin since 1989.
"I'm honored and privileged to follow in the footsteps of Professor Krishnamra, who has been a mentor to me for 25 years, and I'm looking forward to working with my colleagues, the students and the alumni of Sasin, " Professor Jain said. "With additional programs at our new Phuket campus, we can ensure that Sasin continues to be a pioneer in management education and one of the leading business schools in the ASEAN region."
"Professor Jain is uniquely qualified to lead Sasin in our fourth decade," Professor Krishnamra said. "Since he has been teaching here since 1989, there are now thousands of Sasin students and a lumni who have taken his courses and who still look back on their time with him as one of their best Sasin experiences. I know that he is a gifted educator and an experienced administrator who will serve Sasin well."
He will succeed Toemsakdi Krishnamra who founded Sasin 32 years ago.
