India Today Group and Harvard Business Review have joined hands to launch the Harvard Business Review South Asia edition, targeted at the developing markets in the South Asian region. With this launch, the marketing magazine now has 12 editions, out of which this the only English edition other than the original one, which was started way back in 1922.
Finance Minister P Chidambaram, while launching the issue, said, “This magazine has given importance to many important theories and ideas. In India, too, it should continue to do the same. Harvard Business Review South Asia should not just target corporate sectors, but should also try to capture the business practices employed by other industrial sectors of the country.”
“India is well on the way to becoming one of the world’s biggest economies and already Indian businesses across a welter of industries are making their mark in global markets. There is probably no better time than this to launch the world’s most influential business management in India,” explained Aroon Purie, Editor-In-Chief, India Today Group.
Speaking at the launch function, Thomas A Stewart, Editor, Harvard Business Review, added, “With this association of Harvard Business Review and India Today Group, the Harvard Business Review South Asia is going to be an intimate part of development in India.”
The launch event was followed by a panel discussion on ‘Building Emerging Giants’ by Adi Godrej, Chairman, Godrej Group; Aditya Puri, MD, HDFC Bank; Malvinder Singh, CEO and MD, Ranbaxy; Naina Lal Kidwai, CEO, HSBC India; Ravi Kant, CEO and MD, TATA Motors; and Nirmalya Kumar, professor at the London Business School. The discussion was moderated by Stewart. The discussion revolved around the growth and development of Indian companies on a global scale.
