Professor Dipak C. Jain, Ph.D. Bio



July 7, 2014: Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration of Chulalongkorn University has announced the appointment of Professor Dipak C. Jain, Ph.D., as the second Director in the school’s history. Professor Jain succeeds Professor Toemsakdi Krishnamra, who founded Sasin and has led the school of management for the past 32 years. Professor Krishnamra will serve as a member of the Sasin Executive Council.

Professor Jain brings extensive international experience as an educator and business school administrator. He has been a visiting professor of marketing at Sasin since 1989. Most recently, he was The INSEAD Chaired Professor of Marketing, and served as Dean of INSEAD, based in Fontainebleau, France, from 2011-2013. He also served as Dean of the Kellogg School of Management of Northwestern University from 2001-2009, where he had been a faculty member since 1986.

“I’m honored and privileged to follow in the footsteps of Professor Krishnamra, who has been a mentor to me for 25 years, and I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues, the students and the alumni of Sasin,” Professor Jain said. “With additional programs at our new Phuket campus, we can ensure that Sasin continues to be a pioneer in management education and one of the leading business schools in the ASEAN region.”

“Professor Jain is uniquely qualified to lead Sasin in our fourth decade,” Professor Krishnamra said. “Since he has been teaching here since 1989, there are now thousands of Sasin students and alumni who have taken his courses and who still look back on their time with him as one of their best Sasin experiences. I know that he is a gifted educator and an experienced administrator who will serve Sasin well.”
