Consistent with business school practice, faculty from the Research Center solicit and engage only in those consulting and executive development projects that increase their learning and enrich teaching and research. Consulting brings the Center in touch with real life managerial problems and enhances the academia-corporate interfaces at SJIM. While some projects are solely undertaken by the Center, others are undertaken under senior faculty from other reputed business schools, such as IIM Bangalore.Representative Projects and Programs
