"The students and faculty of IIM-Shillong are elated that Dr Kalam is coming to teach at the institute. I am sure his lectures would benefit not only our students but also faculty members," IIM-Shillong Director Kaya Sengupta said.
“The institute has arranged all the materials required for the lecture. He (Kalam) will be lecturing second year students on 'Economically Developed Nation - How to Realise' from Sunday (June 23) to Tuesday (June 25)," Sengupta said.
While visiting the institute earlier on March 6, the former president had agreed to teach at the B-school."I am a teacher. As a professor, wherever knowledge takes me, I go. I like meeting young people and I would like to contribute to their knowledge," Kalam had said.
Kalam, who is also a visiting faculty at IIM-Ahmedabad, will guide the students individually as well as in groups. After the lecture, students will be required to submit project proposals for creating scenarios based on multiple options for specific policy or institutional changes.
The faculty would comment on these proposals, and project teams would be able to consult subject matter specialists through invited lectures and interactions. The students could even visit the experts.
