Commenting on his appointment, Dr.Atish said:
“There are very few management institutions in India which are mission driven, well-differentiated and have a governance structure which is professional, with a global vision. MICA has the advantage of having all three in place. Globally, organisations across industries today are seeking leaders who are customer-centric and yet can effectively communicate to all stakeholders and not only to customers. MICA is the only institution today which is poised to provide cutting-edge education to build ‘leadership through customer-centricity and communication’. For me, MICA is in alignment with what I believe in.”
President and Director NageshRao noted, “Dr.Atish joining MICA adds a layer of excellence in design thinking, a keen business acumen connecting practice with theory, and a leader in strategic marketing. MICA is now geared, along with the existing expertise, to march towards its 2020 vision of making it a global leader in strategic marketing and communication. We are delighted to have Atish be a part of the MICA family.”
