We were blessed with handholding from IIM-A for five years and we are proud of it. We will be doing the same with NTPC School of Business (NSB) and hand hold it for five years, create a top class faculty like our own and offer a host of specialised electives for various aspects related to energy and power sectors," IIM-A's HRM Area Chair and Strategic Management Professor Shri Sunil Kumar Maheshwari said.
We have the entire infrastructure at our NSB’s NOIDA campus ready to start the courses from the academic year including residential facility for the students. We intend to enrol 120 students in the first year”, said Shri A.K. Bhatnagar, Executive Director, Head of Power Management Institute & NSB, NOIDA.
