Bikram Dasgupta


An alumnus of Harvard Business School and IIT Kharagpur, Mr. Bikram Dasgupta is an entrepreneur of repute – a man with a vision. An innovator, thinker and a passionate speaker, Bikram was among the core group of professionals who joined HCL in its infancy and his contributions, as one of the key Market Development Managers, have gone a long way in establishing the market presence that HCL commands today. A passionate, out-of-the-box thinker, who strongly believes in ‘ordinary people can do extraordinary things…‘ wetted his formative entrepreneurial zeal by helping build Pertech Computers Limited (PCL), in 1984. As the Promoter-Director, he steered the company through the initial difficult years and took a leading role in managing a diverse set of functions ranging from Sales & Marketing, to International Business Development and new strategic projects, elevating the company to the position of the No.1 PC manufacturer in India.

With the fast changing IT landscape Bikram Dasgupta foresaw the need for a business model built around the fundamental concepts of Infrastructure and Institution to service the knowledge economy and in 1997 conceptualised Globsyn as a group of companies, which embodied that vision. On the institution building front, it has been Mr. Dasgupta’s lifelong zeal to develop young minds to enable them to face the challenges of the modern workplace and be productive from day one. It is in this mission that he conceptualised and pioneered the Globsyn Knowledge Finishing School™ System which bridges the growing gap between academics and industry through industry relevant programmes in a world class infrastructural setting. This, early innovator approach and concept, found expression through Globsyn Software Finishing School (GSFS) programmes at TECHNOCAMPUS in 1997, the then IBM Center for Excellence. Today under Mr. Dasgupta’s tutelage Globsyn has a faculty team teaching over 42 different management areas, in his B-School, addressing and training engineers in over 50 technology domains through the Finishing School system and addressing multiple domains in Business Process training, coupled with Human Excellence programmes in Behavioral Sciences, Voice & Accent, and other critical areas through Globsyn Skills. This huge repertoire of multidimensional training and teaching capability, facilitated by over 100 teaching professionals, is a unique and the first ever Campus of such integrated learning on Alternative Education in India.
