Prof.V.G.Narayanan's Lecture

Prof.V.G.Narayanan of Harvard Business School delivered the 7th S.Ganapathisubramanian Memorial Lecture in Chennai on 5th January. The event was under the auspices of The Institute of Cost Accountants of India.

The lecture was marked by profound ideas and subtle humour. The professor who is a Chartered Accountant, MBA from IIMA and a Ph.D. in Business from Graduate School of Business at Stanford University spoke on "The future of Indian Management Accounting in the global context".

Narayanan emphasised the importance of online education in enabling customised teaching for millions. He was of the view that India can and should play a leading role in making this happen. Costs per student will fall drastically when online education becomes the norm. Universalisation of education will then become a reality. Way to go!
