Message from Director









Prof.M Chandrasekhar

As a first mover among its generation of IIMs, we launched the doctoral programme in 2019, leading to the award of PhD Degree, in two areas of management. Given the overwhelming response the Programme received from potential researchers, we are now expanding our offering in scale and scope, covering the areas of Decision Sciences, Finance & Accounting; Marketing; and, Production & Operations Management.

As an Institution of National Importance under the IIM Act 2017, we are focusing on contemporary management-research of high quality and large impact. Our PhD programme is an enabling avenue for advancing new knowledge and innovation in management theory and practice, as enshrined in the objects of the Act. Accordingly, our good learning-resources; state-of-the-art facilities, and modern research tools foster an intensive, fulfilling doctoral-career.

Our PhD Programme continues to benefit from the guidance and mentorship of IIM Bangalore, the globally acknowledged leader in management education and research. The rigour and relevance of our Programme are, therefore, a given.

Our faculty from IITs, IIMs, and reputed foreign universities have strong academic and research credentials. With their impactful pedagogy, they ensure that the students get the very best learning environment to pursue serious research.

Let me, therefore, welcome the second-batch of doctoral students with potential and passion, to leverage the strengths of the Institute and carry out research work that not only adds to and enhances the body of knowledge in their domain but also feeds into the realization of inclusive, equitable and sustainable national development goals.

With good wishes,

Message from Chairperson
