It is with great regret and sadness that we receive the news that Professor Surendra Rajiv from the Department of Marketing passed away earlier this week.

Surendra RajivProfessor Rajiv was a key member of the School for 11 years before he resigned last year. He joined us as a tenured professor of marketing in 2002 and held several appointments including Assistant Dean of Research and PhD programmes, as well as Provost’s Chair.

Before joining NUS, he was a visiting professor at the Haas School of Business and was also a faculty member at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
