Research Environment

Research Environment

The Indian School of Business (ISB) provides a robust environment that generates high-quality research which is both contemporary and rigorous.

The ISB is among the few schools in the world that undertakes research with a focus on emerging and transitional economies, striving to create synergies between India, Asia, and the global business environment. The past and ongoing research projects at ISB have dealt with not only business problems encountered by the corporate houses but have also aimed to resolve socio-economic challenges like health care, Indian food-value chain, exploring safe deposit schemes for poor, affordable housing etc.

In addition, the ISB is one of the only institutions in the world to establish dedicated, research oriented Centres of Excellence. The Centres of Excellence provide a forum where knowledge and understanding of business is fostered between the academic and the corporate worlds in several key areas including- investment, finance, leadership, entrepreneurship, family business, information technology and emerging markets.

A proficient pool of research-oriented resident and visiting faculty from top management institutions worldwide provides the essential thrust to ISB’s research milieu. The resident faculty members are highly-acclaimed in their respective domains of expertise and are regularly published in top-tier journals. Conferences, seminars and workshops that draw thought leaders from the global business community, the Government and academia, provide a rich and diverse forum for presenting front line research work and discussing important issues of global interest.

The ISB’s strong research acumen has helped bring knowledge and competencies to benefit industry and society, not only in India, but across Asia and the rest of the world.
