Dr. Vijay Shankar Vyas was born on August 21, 1931 in Bikaner, Rajasthan. He was an economist with a doctorate in Economics from the University of Bombay. He joined IIMA in 1974. Dr. Vyas's tenure was marked by a steady consolidation of the teaching, research, consulting work and executive development agenda that had been established by then. The PGP was expanded to 180 students and distributed across three sections in 1979. More significant was the expansion of the Institute's role in the development of management faculty. A long-term programme-its duration varied over the years from nine months to almost a year-called Programme for Management Faculty was initiated in 1979; the name was changed to "Faculty Development Programme" a couple of years later. The year 1978-79 saw the Institute faculty helping institutions in six countries (Egypt, Indonesia, Nigeria, Philippines, South Korea and Tanzania) strengthen their management training capabilities, and training faculty members of Tribhuvan University in Nepal.
