London School of Economics in Bengaluru: Siddaramaiah

Launching the 125th birth anniversary of Dr B.R. Ambedkar, Chief Minister, Siddaramaiah said the government is seriously considering setting up Dr. Ambedkar London School of Economics in the city. Education NewsLater, the Chief Minister’s office said the chief minister, after consulting National Law School of India University faculty member, Dr S. Japhet and PWD minister, Dr H.C. Mahadevappa, announced this. Dr. Ambedkar received one of his four doctorate degrees — in economics from LSE in 1923. The discussion will start now. The idea perhaps is to partner with London School of Economics to set up a business school. We have to see how this will take shape in future,” a senior official told. Earlier this year, the original proposal of setting up a business school was rejected by the Bengaluru University syndicate when the Jindal group put forth a proposal. The group wanted BU to allot land to it to set up Jindal School of Business on the BU campus. With the chief minister making the announcement now, the idea has got a different twist.
