Usually to be found

Either on the IIM-B campus or at his personal office on Church Street.

Mantra for change

“Be alert, be alive.We should also keep learning forever.”


Quizzing.He was the runner-up in the BBC Mastermind contest in 2002.

He’s the cool professor in touch with the times. He tells his students they can stage a play, or submit a handycam movie, instead of writing a 2,000-word project. Gowda, who teaches various aspects of public policy and management, has a keen interest in politics and a vision for transforming Bangalore.

After a teaching stint at the University of Oklahoma, the John M. Olin Post-doctoral Fellow in Law & Economics, University of California, Berkeley, came to India with a dream.

“My exposure to American education opened my eyes. It makes you do things you weren’t sure you were capable of,” he says. He wants to replicate that in Indian management education.
