IIM Kozhikode has reappointed Debashis Chatterjee for a second term, thereby becoming the first IIM to appoint its own director autonomously after the passage of the IIM Bill .

The Institute has been headless for several years after Chatterjee completed his tenure of five years from 2009 to 2014. He was the architect of the rapid growth of IIMK from a relatively obscure school to a globally accredited institution of national impact.

He was instrumental in admitting more than 50 per cent women in the post-graduate programme, a trend setter among IIMs.

Chatterjee has been a senior professor and Dean (International Relations) at IIM Lucknow and is currently serving as Director General of IMI Delhi, overseeing its three campuses.

He has taught leadership classes at Harvard University and at the Indian Institutes of Management (IIM), Calcutta, Lucknow, and Kozhikode.

He is a recipient of the Fulbright Fellowship twice for pre-doctoral and post-doctoral work at the Harvard University.

Chatterjee is the author of 17 books, including Invincible Arjuna and Timeless Leadership.

He has served as Dean of an international business school in Singapore. Chatterjee served as Independent Director on the boards of several multinational and Indian companies.
