The newly established IIM Rohtak in Haryana got its new director, P Rameshan, from the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Kozhikode. He is a Ph.D. in Economics from IIT-Kharagpur, and was a coordinator of the activities of the Centre for Strategic WTO (World Trade Organization) Research at IIM-Kozhikode. He had earlier served at IIM-Lucknow. IIM-Rohtak commenced operation in July this year, with a batch of 50 students. Since its own campus is yet to be established, classes are held at the Maharishi Dayanand University (MDU) campus in Rohtak.
