SPJIMR Alum Lulu Raghavan Honoured As 2020 AACSB Influential Leader
The alum of SPJIMR is the sole Indian School nominee selected among the 25 awardees, selected from across 862 AACSB accredited business schools in 56 countries, for 2020.
Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s S P Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR) announces that alum Lulu Raghavan is one of 25 business school graduates honoured as the 2020 Class of Influential Leaders by AACSB International (AACSB), the world’s largest business education alliance.
“Lulu Raghavan has blended her business education with passion and purpose, and AACSB is delighted to recognise her among the 2020 Class of Influential Leaders,” said AACSB president and CEO Tom Robinson.
Raghavan, who is from SPJIMR’s PGDM Class of 2000, is the Managing Director in Mumbai of Landor, a global leader in brand consulting and design. The annual challenge recognises notable alumni from AACSB-accredited schools whose inspiring work serves as a model for the next generation of business leaders.
She is passionate about equality and has been an active champion of women at work. In 2019, she was named one of the most influential women in India in the media, advertising and marketing by IMPACT Magazine.
SPJIMR Dean Dr. Ranjan Banerjee said, “It is always good to see our alumni getting recognised on a global stage. Lulu Raghavan led the team at Landor that worked on the new brand architecture for SPJIMR.”
“Fittingly, she herself is an epitome of courage and heart, and combines a professional flair for branding and client understanding, with a deep personal passion and engagement in social issues. She is a strong ambassador for the Institute, and I am certain that she will win many more accolades in the years to come,” he added.
Raghavan said she was delighted and honoured to have been selected for this prestigious award. “My two years at SPJIMR, one of the most prestigious business schools in India, were particularly influential in not only shaping my competencies but also strongly developing my character. SPJIMR’s emphasis on social sensitivity has had a lasting impact on me. I look forward to continuing to create business and social impact through my work at Landor by using the power of brand and design. I am proud to be a global Indian,” she added
