  • Dr Ramaseshan Narasimhan with his strategic vision, was instrumental in paving the way ahead for WOXSEN since its inception as its Founding Dean. It is no exaggeration to say that under his able leadership WOXSEN was able to build a 'for-entrepreneurship' ecosystem. An able administrator and a well-read academic, his far-reaching insights on academics and direction in shaping the school’s strategy were always path breaking.
