But hey! Just a second. It turns out that the Memorandum of Association of IIM Bangalore does not allow it to establish a brick and mortar campus overseas. Oooh! I wonder why nobody is talking much about this humungous slip-up by IIM Bangalore. Surely something as elementary as this should have been taken care of even before thinking of venturing abroad. And if this is the same thoroughness with which IIM B will do things then may be they should not be allowed overseas after all. ;-) Juuusst kidding guys. But seriously, if someone working in a corporate entity goofed up like this he/she would have definitely got a black eye.
I guess in all this it helped that the reason given was so asinine. The IIMs are expected to handle all demand in India before venturing out. Sure! So it does it mean that all aspirants should get a seat?
Let’s wait and watch how things develop on this front. Should be interesting viewing.
