Fellow Program - Career Opportunities

The Fellow Programme at IIM Calcutta equips candidates to indulge with equal prowess in careers involving research, academia or industry expertise. Currently, about two-thirds of our Fellows are associated with academic institutions, research organizations and think-tanks, while the rest have taken up leadership roles associated with corporates.

When it comes to securing faculty positions, our Fellows are ubiquitous among the top tier B-Schools in the country including the IIMs (Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, Lucknow, Indore, Kozhikode among others), XLRI, SPJIMR among others. Many have also secured academic positions in global universities and business schools featuring among the top 30 B-Schools in the 2016 FT Rankings. Some notable academics include Ajay Kalra (Herbert S. Autrey Professor of Marketing, Rice University), Monideepa Tarafdar (Professor at Lancaster University Management School) and Sebastian Morris (Professor of Economics at IIM Ahmedabad).

Many of our Fellows have also gone on to head specialized research institutions and policy think-tanks. Some of our notable alumni in this space include Padma Bhushan recipient Ramchandra Guha (Renowned Historian and writer), Bernard C. D’Mello (Deputy Editor, Economic & Political Weekly), Jayesh Ranjan (Secretary [IAS Cadre],Information Technology Department, Telangana State), Nilanjan Ghosh (Observer Research Foundation), and Harsh Thukral (Deputy Director, National Productivity Council).

A third of our Fellows have also taken up leadership roles at leading industrial and corporate organizations. Some of the regular corporate recruiters for FPM candidates include McKinsey, BCG, A.T. Kearney, Accenture, Deloitte & Touche, Infosys, Tata Research and Design Centre, Wipro, Accenture, IBM, Virtusa and Mathologic, among others. Notable Fellows include M Raychaudhuri (Managing Director, Asian Equity Strategist, BNP Paribas), Myshkin Ingawale Tejas (Ex-Chief of Staff, Xiaomi India) and Nandini S (Vice-President and Group Head, Organizational Development, Infosys).

Some others have been smitten by the entrepreneurial bug and have carved a niche for themselves. Certain Fellows in this space include M.R. Madhavan (co-founder PRS Legislative Research), Manish Kumar (Mathologic Technologies Pvt. Ltd.), and Myshkin Ingawale Tejas (Co-founder Biosense).

As is evident from the above, Fellows of IIM Calcutta have had an amazing legacy be it in any sphere, and the recent batches to continue to uphold and build upon this rich legacy. Provided below is information on our recent alumni.
