Being an academic leader is a tough job and leading institutions of higher learning is definitely challenging in current scenario. It has become more challenging due to shrinking of budgets, rise in public scrutiny and expectations, commercialisation, massification. Responsibilities continue to grow for academic leaders. But leading a B-School which is also an institution of higher learning is more than a tough job. It is in fact a roller coaster ride. So what is that makes leading B-School so bewildering and what are the imperatives in leading a B-School is the focus of this paper? Adopting in depth literature review and contextual analysis of secondary published data, reports and deep observation as a part of B-School for nearly two decades the paper also proposes a holistic framework to lead a B-School to achieve its rightful place, become more responsible for ensuring sustainability and growth in the context in which it operates.
