Vidhya Munuswamy

Vidhya Munuswamy brings close to three decades of professional experience to Krea. Equipped with a Master’s degree in Personnel Management and Industrial Relations from the Madras School of Social Work, she started her career with a Multinational Bank, but soon found her calling in the Higher Education space, where she has been working ever since.

As a Consultant, she has worked with several reputed B Schools and Engineering colleges in France, designing and delivering credit-based modules for their International programs. She has conducted workshops for Corporate clients in Spain and France on International Mobility and Cross-Cultural Management, in the context of Doing Business in India.  Sensitizing her international students and clients to embrace cultural diversity for achieving a pluralistic environment, has been the highlight of her work abroad.

As a strategic HR leader, her association with Educational Institutions in India, took her beyond the realms of talent acquisition and best employee engagement practices. A career development strategy she devised, based on a symbiotic relationship between academics, job market exigencies, industry expectations, social & community needs, led to a sustained successful student placement model.

She has also gained a 360 degree understanding of the expectations of all stakeholders in seeking admission to higher education institutions, through her close association with schools.

She has served on several Management and Student Committees at the institutions she has worked for.

She is passionate about mentoring students from small cities, helping them bridge the social divide and compete on an equal footing in the job market.

Engaging the younger generation in reviving some of the indigenous dying art forms is one of her pet projects that she hopes to work on in the future.
