It seems that Vijay Mallya debt fiasco has become an interesting topic for study.
The professors at Indian Institute of Management- Ahemdabad (IIM-A) are mulling over ‘The Liquor Baron’s debt fiasco’ as a case study material for the business school students.
Mallya, who had once given a lecture in IIM-Kolkata, ran away from the country with overdue of Rs 9,000 crore debt and its interest to various banks.
The professors believe that Mallya debt travails can be a case study to discuss the aspect of ethics, corporate governance and brand management.
The students will also be taught on how stakeholders are affected with such cases, sources at IIM-A told TOI.
The sources further said that the post-graduate students in finance and accounting faculty are likely to study the case of Mallya, which has already been discussed in the classroom by students and their faculties.
Not only IIM-A, but students are other institutes like IIM Lucknow, IIM Bangalore and IIM Indore are also likely to be taught the Mallya case.
Previously, some of the IIMs had discussed the case of Satyam computers’ former chairman Ramalinga Raju after the infamous scandal.
