In striving to be a highly respected B-School in South India within the next three years, we have been placing significant importance on learning and teaching, research, and community engagement. We have been inviting regularly experienced managers into our classroom as guest lecturers, revising our curricula by asking feedback from practitioners, benchmarking them to the syllabi of reputed overseas universities, and adopting innovative teaching methods. We have invigorated research culture within the School that has resulted in increasing publications by our faculty members. Through the 5 Centers established within the School, which are the Centre for Advanced Research in Financial Inclusion, Centre for Marketing Advances, Centre for Regional Development, Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, and Indo German Centre for Applied Research and Academic Exchange, we are driving our research activities in the thrust areas, providing execution development programs and delivering our community engagement activities.
