Hyderabad: Rajat Gupta, the former director of Goldman Sachs, is likely to don the new role of a teacher at the Indian School of Business, the institute that he founded.

Replying to an ISB student’s query if he would consider taking up teaching, Mr Gupta said, “In fact, I have a secret to tell you. I tried to teach strategy at ISB... But I found it is difficult to teach... But as I always get out of my comfort zone, why not. If the dean invites me, I would be happy to teach at ISB.”

He also suggested ISB students against sticking to their comfort zone. “Once you get into a comfort zone, you must get yourselves out of it. Otherwise, you will get into a rut.”
