Commenting on the inter-link between Chess and academic performance, World
Chess Champion, Viswanathan Anand said, “Chess is a great stimulant for
significant intellectual development resulting in improved academic performance.
I feel more and more students should be introduced to Chess during their
formative years as it helps bring out their analytical skills.”“Vish Come True, is yet another initiative by NIIT to introduce
chess to students at a young age in order to develop their intellectual
capabilities”, he added.World Chess Champion, Anand, gave playing tips to young Chess
enthusiasts and responded to their queries, using NIIT Imperia’s national
network which is being used by premier business schools such as the IIMs
(Ahmedabad, Indore, Kolkata) and others, to offer their executive management
education programs to working professionals across the country. Mr. G Raghavan, President, Global Individual Learning Solutions, NIIT
said, “We have received an overwhelming response for the NIIT Vish Come
True competition across India. This has been an ideal initiative that supports
our endeavour to promote intellectual growth of students. It is also interesting
to see the satellite based synchronous learning platform being used beyond the
management education that we deliver across 22 locations.
