 Dr. Jitendra K. Das, Director, FORE School of Management, New Delhi  wins the Best Director Award at the Asian Education Leadership Awards 2013

Dr. Jitendra K. Das, Director of FORE School of Management, New Delhi has bagged the Best Director Award at the Asian Education Leadership Awards. The awards ceremony was held on 24th September 2013 at Movenpick Hotel, Jumeirah Beach, Dubai and attracted the best in the field of management from all over Asia. It’s a feather in the cap, not only for the prolific academician, but for one of the most renowned B schools in the country as well.


Dr. Das is quick to give credit to his institution, as he says, “I am privileged to be part of FORE School of Management, New Delhi, which continuously strives to make a niche for itself. This award is recognition for all the work the institute has been doing. I am elated to receive the award on the behalf of the institute and the entire FORE family that works towards the goal of creating a unique space for itself in the management school environment.”


The Asian Leadership Awards are all about super achievers and future leaders in the world of business. The event attracts and acknowledges high profile business leaders from all over the continent who have made a difference to the economic development of their countries. It also brings together leaders whose qualities have given a whole new meaning to nation building, especially in the post-recession period.


The Best Director Award falls under the Asian Education Leadership Awards, a category that holds huge importance considering it is all about contributions towards shaping careers of future management professionals. Recipients of awards in this category are those who make a difference to management students of today and prospective leaders of tomorrow.


Dr. Das concurs with the notion that awards for educationists directly relate to grooming of students at respective institutes. “It is generally believed that faculty makes a good B-school, thereby resulting in the overall development of the students so as to prepare them for the corporate world. The faculty at FORE School of Management, New Delhi has been trying tirelessly to prove this point,” he says.  


It is a known fact that the faculty members at FORE School of Management, New Delhi come from premier educational institutions and reputed business organisations. Many of them have published numerous research papers and have spearheaded several initiatives in various areas of management. Moreover, according to Dr. Das, “Faculty members are sent to national and international conferences. Faculty Development Programmes at international locations, with local academic partners, are organised to sharpen their skills.”


Together with a healthy student faculty ratio of 8:1, FORE ensures that best learning environment is created for future managers. The institute prides itself on the fact that it takes students on board when it comes to initiatives and activities related to their studies and future. Student concerns are also taken up on a priority basis, according to Dr. Das.

The award is an acknowledgement of these efforts taken by FORE School Of Management, New Delhi and its Director. But it has also served as encouragement for the institute to keep up the quality work it has been doing for student development. Dr. Das explains his institute’s vision for the future as he says, “We are taking new initiatives to involve students in various corporate assignments with the objective of them getting a valuable ‘on-the-job live experience’. We are encouraging students to work on new idea projects and plan to provide the initial funding. Later, the successful initiatives can be funded by external investors, for which we have initiated discussions.”

Clearly, the prestigious award is just the beginning for the institute and its Director. And that is definitely a good news for present and future students of FORE School of Management, New Delhi.
