“There is no better education I could have received than the one I received at IIT (BHU), which was called Banaras Engineering College (BENCO) when I graduated in 1967. I was fortunate to get a full scholarship at BENCO which included tuition fee, room and board. I feel indebted to Indian taxpayers who paid for my education. Now I feel obligated to pay back my debt to my alma mater. I’m confident that we will achieve our mission for the School of Decision Sciences and Engineering, which is to become a global leader in producing excellent decision makers with professional integrity and values who will contribute to the progress of the society,” said Jain.
