The University of Chicago named Bharath Visweswariah, a business and management consultant in India, as the executive director of the university’s Center in Delhi earlier this month.
The center is expected to open in March. Visweswariah will create and oversee administrative functions, staffing the center and implementing a strategic plan provided by Gary Tubb, the faculty director at the center, and its faculty steering committee.
Visweswariah has worked at CEB Asia, a publicly traded, member-based company that advises more than 6,000 businesses from 111 countries.
The University of Chicago opened its Center in Beijing in 2010 and the Center in Paris in 2004. It also has campuses in London and Singapore.
The university is also working to open a center in Hong Kong that will house a Booth School of Business.
