The ISB Honorary Distinguished Fellowship is designed to honour personalities of national and international eminence, who have contributed to society through their thought leadership and success. They are also respected by the industry and the academia alike, and have inspired generations of people to achieve excellence in their respective fields of activity.

Conferring the title, Professor Rajendra Srivastava, Dean, ISB, said, “I am happy to announce N R Narayana Murthy as the first ISB Honorary Distinguished Fellow. He has inspired many ISB students by agreeing to participate in the school's activities and by being a benefactor to the school. The ISB has much in common with what Murthy espouses and respects his values and endeavours to nurture a spirit of entrepreneurship and make a positive impact on society.

The announcement was met with a thunderous applause from the audience at the Khemka Auditorium of the ISB’s Hyderabad campus, where NRN was participating in the Dean's Speakers Series moderated by the ISB Dean.

Murthy has been closely engaged with the ISB, first, as one of the key founding members and a member of the Executive Board, and in the recent past as a member of the ISB Governing Board.
