The Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth Trust announced that Prof. B. Mahadevan, eminent Management Professor and former Dean at the Indian Institute of Management, has taken charge as the Vice Chancellor of the Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth.
A sought-after professor in the field of Operations Research, Prof. Mahadevan is well-known for his insightful talks that connect the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita and Vedanta to modern business challenges. His course on the same topic at IIM-B started with just 30 students and quickly mushroomed to 160 students in a matter of just 2 years.
Swami Swaroopananda, the chairman of the Trust, welcomed Dr. Mahadevan and said that “with an academic of such eminent stature in the field of Management Studies, the Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth has made clear the desire to discover new areas of innovative relevance for India’s ageless wisdom.”
Dr. Mahadevan is also a member of the board of the Samskrita Bharati, Karnataka.
