Our Legacy

Our Founder

Mr. R.K. Shrivastava

A Great Visionary and Entrepreneur
Feb 21, 1945 – Jan 1, 2005
"The woods are lovely dark & deep, but I have promises to keep And miles to go before I sleep; and miles to go before I sleep"

Mr. R.K Shrivastava (or ‘RK Sir’ as he was fondly called at FIIB) was born to a humble family in a small town in Madhya Pradesh, India. Post completing a B.E. in Electrical Engineering, he went to Indian Institute of Management, Kolkata to complete his PGDBM (MBA). Coming from humble beginnings, the lasting impact education had on his life success and contributions to society, stayed with him for ever and have been a living inspiration for the lives he touched.

He started his professional career with the DCM Group in various capacities, the last one being Executive Director–Exports. Despite spearheading several successful initiatives and his glorious stint as a young professional leader at DCM, he was hungry to contribute and achieve more. His entrepreneurial journey began in 1977 and continued until his last breath (2005). Over 3 decades, he founded and promoted a number of manufacturing and export ventures in industrial machinery manufacturing, mining, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and leather sectors. His efforts as an entrepreneur were duly recognized and he was felicitated on more than 20 occasions by national and international agencies of highest repute. Some of his key awards include:

VIJAY RATNA AWARD: Excellence in the field of industry

GEM OF INDIA AWARD: Contribution to social, political life of India

U.N. AWARD: Transfer of technologies, manufacturing practices & commerce

HIND RATTAN AWARD: Outstanding services, achievements & contributions

Being a staunch believer in the value of education and its role in changing one’s destiny, he founded the Fortune Institute of International Business in 1995 with a vision to providing high quality management education at par with international standards and relevant to the industry. Through the college, he aimed to develop outstanding managerial talent capable of providing responsible leadership. He dared all who knew him to dream, to work smart and strive for nothing less than excellence.

Today at FIIB we continue to live by the same set of values. We have a long way to go -dreams to fulfill, heights to reach and responsibilities to carry out; But with a strong core that was put in place by RK Sir, we are well positioned to achieve all that we set out to.
