Noted corporate-honcho-turned-academician, Dr. C.N. Narayana, has taken over the reins at Kirloskar Institute of Advanced Management Studies. KIAMS is the brainchild of Shantanurao Laxmanrao Kirloskar, one of the first Indians to have studied Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a distinguished son of India. It is backed by the Kirloskar Group, which is amongst the biggest corporate conglomerates of Asia.
A Management PhD in HRM Strategies from Canterbury University, UK, Dr. C.N.Narayana comes from a sterling corporate background spanning nearly 25 years, before moving into the academia in 2010. In his corporate avatar, he has traversed a number of industries and roles, with organisations like Godrej & Boyce, GE Appliances, Thermax, Xerox, RPG; reaching at the zenith of his corporate career at Essar Group as the Head - Global Working Capital Assurance. After being bestowed a PhD by Canterbury University, Dr. Narayana shifted into the academia. 
Starting with International Management Institute, he held the dual roles of GM, Operations, as well as Professor between 2007-08. He returned to IMI later in 2011, again in a dual role, as a Registrar and Secretary, Board of Governors, and Chief of Operations for New Delhi and Bhubaneswar. In June 2014, he joined as a Professor of HRM and Director of CDL at IFIM, Bangalore, before taking over as Director of KIAMS. In November 2014, he won the 22ndDewang Mehta Best Professor of HRM Award.
“KIAMS has spearheaded numerous industry-oriented innovations in full-time PGDM education,” said Dr. C.N. Narayana on taking over at the helm of affairs. “KIAMS introduced the Balanced Growth Card - a holistic evaluation of the student that focuses not only on performance outcomes but also on demonstrated effort and underlying competencies. We were the first to Introduce seminar credits. This brought to the student the latest industrial practices in management, delivered by industry practitioners. I intend carrying forward in this vein of innovation.”
