Dean’s Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to the 12th Annual Wharton Indian Economic Forum. The
breadth and depth of our audience today is most impressive—as is their knowledge of India—
with top business executives, government officials and policymakers, as well as leading aca-
demics from Wharton and around the world. We are especially honored to have as a keynote
speaker Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, former president of India and a renowned scientist. Together
we share a common mission: first, to create and disseminate new and useful knowledge that
will improve business practices in India, and, second, to assist and encourage global corpo-
rations in supporting sustainable growth of the Indian economy.

For more than 125 years, Wharton has been global in its focus and actively engaged in the
world community. As we explore promising future opportunities for the Indian economy,
Wharton brings to this task unparalleled intellectual capital, as well as a desire to strengthen
and expand our connections to India.

Our roots in India are longstanding and continue to grow each year. Our alumni base in In-
dia is extensive and actively engaged, with an ever-increasing enrollment of Indian students
in our undergraduate, MBA and doctoral programs. Much of our academic focus on India
has been spearheaded by several senior Indian scholars on our faculty, who, along with
other Wharton faculty, conduct cutting-edge research on Indian firms and issues. This past
year, Wharton was proud to renew its association with the Indian School of Business, and to
launch the ISB-Wharton Joint Research Initiative. In addition, we have welcomed to campus
several leading figures in the Indian economy, including Finance Minister P. Chidambaram
and Arcelor Mittal President and CEO Lakshmi Mittal.

Opportunities presented by this conference, as well as such resources as India Knowledge@
Wharton (, our biweekly online business journal
specifically for India, advance our commitment to India. I encourage you to engage deeply
in today’s discussions to gain additional insights into how you can be involved in conceptual-
izing, envisioning and driving the future of India.
