RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Research had contributed tremendously to the development of the thought-process of the human race. During the last few decades of the 20th century, academic research has evolved with a tremendous pace, due to phenomenal technological developments. Interestingly, the digitisation of data also enables more interdisciplinary work, and sometimes the emergence of new fields, thanks to the reuse of data sets in unexpected ways or the linking of several data sets.
 
In such a scenario, Department of Management Studies takes diligent care to encourage research in the fields of business and management and other challenging areas by offering good opportunities and valuable guidance to those, both faculty members as well as professionals from industries, who seek to venture into research. It is worthy to make a note that all the faculty members of the Department of Management Studies are pursuing research leading to PhD degree. Full-time, as well as part-time scholars, more than 35 persons, have registered for research programme in the Department. Professionals from the industries in and around Chennai, such as Hyundai Motor India Limited, MARG Group, etc are pursuing research in the Department.
 
The range of research is so wide as to include traditional marketing, human resources, advanced and highly contemporary topics in finance, supply chain management, emotional intelligence, project management, etc. All research scholars, as a matter of routine, present a seminar during the Doctoral Committee meetings and thus offer an excellent opportunity for others to interact in a variety of business areas.
