It was Shri Naidu who gave India the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad. though not in Andhra Pradesh anymore, the CM is inspired for future.
He plans to do bigger on his target this time. The Business School will be a school of premier standards and will follow the PPP, Public Private Partnership model for execution. The institute will be spread out over 100 acres and is estimated to cost Rs. 500 crores. Not one to leave international names, Shri Naidu has roped in big names. London School of Economics, Harvard Kennedy School, University of Birmingham, National University of Singapore are all joining hands. For global partners, UN agencies, World Bank, ADB and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are intended.
For his plans for the business school, the CM has partnered with Pramath Raj Sinha, founding dean of ISB and co-founder of Ashoka University. The plan for the future institute is modeled around ISB but will transcend the scale of operations. The vision of the institute is to eliminate poverty and development of society.
