Research at the Management School aims to facilitate creative and scholarly faculty engagement with industry, government organisations and other academic institutions in India and around the world, in order to produce original and significant work.
Faculty members participate in academic conferences within the country and abroad; develop proposals for funded projects relevant to their work; publish in peer-reviewed journals of the highest calibre; and occupy positions on the editorial and review boards of a variety of journals and research organisations. They are also involved in consulting, and in cutting-edge company-based research.
For these purposes, the school provides support to faculty through various measures. These include the faculty development allowance, research grants, travel allowances, and a mechanism to request sabbaticals for targeted research tasks. The school’s computer lab and central library give researchers access to world-class resources. Through a Research Seminar Series, the school also conducts sessions for academics to share their research experiences and interact with other experts in management studies. In addition, the university conducts regular workshops on research methods.
Our partnerships with other universities are constantly expanding and scaling up the Management School’s research and publications drive.

Publications are an important performance indicator at the school. Faculty and scholars are encouraged to publish in nationally and internationally significant peer-reviewed journals and to contribute to the academic fraternity by taking positions on editorial and review boards. The school is in the process of building an institutional record of conference proceedings, journal papers, working papers, articles, case studies, conceptual papers and teaching notes. Additionally, faculty members publish research-relevant work regularly in newspapers and magazines.
Working papers are an important means for the school to relay evolving information through its intellectual network. The school and the University Research Board (URB) encourage faculty to register their working papers in order to receive feedback from their peers and facilitate future publication. These working papers may take the form of academic articles, book chapters, reviews, or a conceptual idea the researcher is currently working on.
The school’s faculty is currently engaged in creating a repertoire of cases to provide a powerful, sophisticated learning tool. Faculty members are mentored in this endeavour by senior academicians as they conceptualise and write cases. In addition, faculty members participate in case writing competitions and publish their work on reputed platforms, including Ivey Publishing and ECCH. See more about the Case Centre here.
