Madan Pillutla named Dean of the Indian School of Business (ISB)

The Indian School of Business (ISB) today announced the appointment of Professor Madan Pillutla as its 6th Dean. Prof Pillutla is a globally renowned management academic and leader in the field of organizational behavior, currently at London Business School (LBS). He will succeed the Dean Rajendra Srivastava and will formally take over on July 1, 2021.
A visiting faculty member at ISB since its founding, Prof Pillutla currently serves as a Professor of Organizational Behavior, a department he chaired in the past, at LBS. Having served as the Deputy Dean of Faculty, Ex-Officio Member of the Executive Committee, and the Faculty Representative on the Governing Body of LBS, he brings extensive administrative experience.
“Madan’s appointment comes at a transformative  phase for ISB. In the nearly 20 years of our existence, successive generations of very capable Deans have built the school to its current pre-eminence and we are excited about  the important role ISB will continue to play in business education in India and internationally. In Madan, we are fortunate to find the combination of academic excellence, deep administrative expertise and, importantly, someone who is familiar with the unique culture  of ISB. At LBS, he has a proven track record of delivering important outcomes which include  improved research productivity and increased gender diversity that are equally important to ISB’s future progress. He holds a distinctive vision for the institution, and we are certain that he will take ISB to new heights”, says  Harish Manwani, Chairperson, ISB Executive Board.
Dean Rajendra Srivastava added, “I am excited to handover the baton to Madan and believe that the school will see tremendous progress with him as Dean. We have worked closely together over the last 20 years and I look forward to continue working with him as I transition into a faculty role as the Novartis Professor of Marketing Strategy and Innovation over the next few months.
