The Holden Medal for Education is a bi-annual award given by The Textile Institute, UK.
“I am delighted to be conferred the Holden Medal for Education by The Textile Institute, UK which is a much valued international recognition for educators. No single individual can claim the ownership of ideas and transformation of institutions like NID, NIFT, ATDC, IAM where I have spent nearly three decades. Institutions are bigger than people and I feel happy and honoured that I got right opportunities mostly at the right time to make contribution in the education especially focused on textile-apparel value chain. It was a great pleasure heading NID for nearly a decade and being part of the founding team of NIFT during its formative years,” said Koshy.
He has also bagged many prestigious awards and accolades including IIT Alumni award for contribution to Nation development and the Indian Star of solidarity and the OGTC Path Breaker Award, 2014, among others.
A doctorate in management from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, Koshy has been also trained at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), New York in fashion marketing & merchandising. He has been the recipient of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to carry out research on India’s destination markets for apparel.
He had established the fashion management department at the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) New Delhi which he headed as senior professor and chairperson from 1987 to 2000. He was also the director of NID, Ahmedabad from 2000 to 2009. (RR)
