Biography

Prof. Dr. Murali Sambasivan is an erudite scholar, skilled professional, and expert educator – and the apt choice to head TSM. Having completed his gradutaion and post-graduation in Engineering from prestigious institutions in Chennai and Mumbai respectively, he went on to do his PhD in the US, in Management Science; not only that, he is a CPIM (Certified in Production and Inventory Management), from APICS, USA. This immensely talented academician has a rich experience as an educator. For more than two decades, he taught PhD, post-grad, and graduate students in Malaysian universities, his subjects being Quantitative Techniques, statistics, and Operations Management.

He has also served as an educator in various roles ranging from research associate to senior professor, in numerous institutes in India, Malaysia, and the US, winning awards for teaching, paper presentation and research, along the way. During his teaching tenure, he was also entrusted with several administrative roles, ranging from research committee member to coordinator, to advisor, and so on. Under his able guidance, over 60 students completed their post-graduation and PhD.

His industry experience has also been diverse, having served in the automobile, courier, IT, and infrastructure, and this has given him deep insights into the business environments, models, and working of those industries. Among these, one of his most noteworthy accomplishments is helping UPM get accredited by AACSB. He drafted the entire documentation — Alignment plan, progress reports and Self-Evaluation Report, and designed and implemented the Assurance of Learning system.

An unassuming gentleman, Dr. Sambasivan has published several texts that are used by students as guides to learn their subjects like statistics and decision analysis; this is in addition to the innumerable research papers he has published as he conducted research in wide ranging subjects.
