Professor Ganesh Kumar Nidugala, Faculty, IIM Indore along with FPM Participant Rashmi Shukla (Batch 2012) won the Best Case Award at the 5th Asian Management Research and Case Conference held at Dubai on January 16-18, 2016. The theme for this year’s conference was Internationalizing Asian Businesses. Competing with more than 190 entries of cases and research papers in the conference, IIM Indore’s case titled ‘Madhya Pradesh Housing & Infrastructure Development Board: Affordable Housing via PPP Mode’ won the Best Case Award. The case highlighted a specific challenge faced in most in Asian countries, how to provide affordable housing for the poor when the government funding is limited. The case is rooted in the Indian context but would find resonance across many Asian and African countries that face similar challenges.
The conference was organized by University of Wollogong, Dubai; in collaboration with Lahore University of Management Sciences, Indian Institute of Management Bangalore, Graduate School of Business, Universiti Sains Malaysia and University of Dhaka.
