Continuing in a similar vein and taking another step forward in this direction with the aim of 'Globalizing Indian Thought', IIM Kozhikode is organizing an international symposium on 'Practical Wisdom for Management from the Indian Spiritual Traditions' on 12th and 13th November, 2011. IIM Kozhikode is committed to 'Globalizing Indian Thought' and this symposium brings together the world's finest minds to examine how Indian spiritual traditions can be repositioned for managing the world in the 21st century.

"Leaders transform by creating new meanings for old forms and India, and Indian Management Thought has a lot to contribute to the world in this regard" says Prof. Debashis Chatterjee, Director of IIM Kozhikode.
