IISM was last year bestowed the Rashtriya Puruskar virtually by the Hon’ble President of India Shri Ram Nath Kovind. The National Sports Awards 2020 ceremony was held virtually for the first time in history with the President attending the event from the President’s House. 

IISM, a pioneering initiative in sports management education, was founded by Kulkarni, who played three Tests and 10 ODIs, eleven years ago along with his wife Rasika.  The Andheri-based institute offers professional courses for undergraduate and post-graduate students and explores uncharted avenues of sports management education in the country.

On receiving the coveted award, Kulkarni said, “It is a matter of immense pride for IISM to be recognized for its contribution to sports management. Our first-of-its-kind initiative in sports management in India is gaining popularity. This award will go a long way in making us strive to equip students with professional skills to lead meaningful careers in the sports industry. I’d like to extend gratitude to our students, alumni, parents, collaborators, and associates for being a significant part of our wonderful journey. Moreover, I appreciate and am grateful for the constant support received from the Sports Authority of India and Khelo India towards our industrious efforts of doing
something novel in the sports industry.”
