The name "SLK" in SLK Center For Executive Education is inspired by Mr. Shantanurao Laxmanrao Kirloskar (1903 - 1994), one of the early successful entrepreneurs of India. A man of principles, his keen business acumen, global perspective and innovative streak coupled with strong determination, hastened India on the path to economic success in the pre-independence era.
He often said, "Economic preparedness is as vital as military preparedness." He was a futurist who always worked towards making India globally competitive.In May 2003, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the then Prime Minister of India, released a commemorative postage stamp marking Mr. S.L. Kirloskar's 100th centenary. SLK CEE takes great pride in being named after such a pioneer; a man who had unstinting faith in his ideas and had the courage to take on challenges towards achieving his goals.He continues to be the force behind our success and inspiration.
