How many days would it take to set up a b- school from scratch and get it going with full complement of I60 seats including 38 girls? An unbelievable 40 days! This is the extraordinary tale of a former Symbiosis Pune director being literally egged on by a loyal group of alumni from his es-institute and academic friends including a business rival. in setting up a fully functional managerrtcnt school in record time. that tooin June tshentheadmissionseason usuallyends. "l cannot believe that our institute has actually started functioning.‘ says an exuberant Prof MS. Pillai while showing around his institute. merely days afler it commenced its operations in the btasyeilyeentreathrne. To say the least. Pillai. when he found himself without a job on 27 April 2004 alter he fell out with the Symbiosis management alter spending l6 years of service. was paranoid as to how he was going to meet the house and car payments. besides his household expense. ‘My first thought was to look for a job and l even had an immediate offer from a friend and former colleague Prof Balasubramaniant who mns a prominent set of educational institutions in Pane.‘ reminisces Pillai. It was. in fact. Prof Bala who first set the ball rolling by offering a massive sum purely as a gesture of friendship to bale out Pillai. despite knowing that Pillai's institute could easily become a competitor. °lle was my forrrter teacher. underwhomldid my .Balasubramaniant. executive directorofllM.\l.Pune.
