Kalam to teach at IIM-Ahmedabad

Former President A P J Abdul Kalam will teach students of Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) on Globalising and Resurgent India through Innovative Transformation(GRIT) from September 13.

Dr Kalam will start his lectures to a bench of around 70 students from Saturday, IIM-A sources said.

The ‘Missile Man’ is likely to include his vision 2010 for the country in the course material and teach students about the same.

After initial lectures, students would be expected to submit project proposals for creating scenarios based on multiple and if necessary, contending options for specific policy and institutional changes.

The faculty would comment on these proposals and the project teams would be enabled to consult the subject matter specialists through invited lectures and interactions or visit to them.

The final reports will be presented in open sessions in which other faculty members and the students may also be invited to ask questions and make comments.

The reports will be revised and those of them, which are of outstanding quality, may be published for wider debate every year.
