Prof. Dr. Dayanand Arora
Very well connected in Industry, Academia and Government
It gives me immense pleasure to recommend Professor Vinay Kumar Nangia for his energetic and mature contributions in new projects and positions. I know him since 2007, when I was visiting IIT Roorkee at the invitation of Professor Gauri Shankar Singh, Professor of Physics. Prof. Nangia was Head of Management Department at that time. His outgoing style and friendly nature immediately impressed me. We have been interacting in different projects and conferences since that time. It has been a distinct privilege for me to call him a friend since then. Whenever I meet him, I enjoy discussing with him various topic of common interest and relish his mature guidance. During this period, I have found him to be not only knowledgeable and resourceful but dynamic and enterprising. His areas of expertise stretch from Banking and Finance all the way to Investment Banking, Project Financing, General Management and Education. I know him as a professor who has been on the boards of several academic and professional bodies since last 15 years. He is very well connected in industry, academia and government. I also notice that he is one of the most sought-after Professor by the students from all disciplines in undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programs. His sincere efforts at connecting with students is always visible in helping, guiding, advising, supporting, counselling and mentoring them without discrimination. Even students who graduated 15 or 20 years back remain in touch with him and continuously avail of his mentorship. Professor Vinay Nangia has a unique distinction of serving industry for about 24 years In India and abroad and academia for about 22 years as a Professor. He has special expertise for not only taking interviews but guiding the candidates for preparing for interviews. He is regularly invited as member in various selection committees for Faculty Selection, MBA Admissions and even senior appointments in Government. He is also active as Advisor in Union Public Service Commission (UPSC). I am confident that students and professionals everywhere shall continue to benefit from Prof. Nangia’s able guidance.
