Research at large, means the pursuit of truth. The difference between physical sciences and social sciences, which management is a part of, is that in former, truth doesn’t have many versions. Whereas in letter truth is subjective. The very subjective nature of the discipline of management makes the pursuit of truth interesting and purposeful. In one area of study, viz., Corporate Strategy and Policy, some of the question one attempts answering are: Role of intellectual property on firm’s diversification strategy or how firms develop innovation competencies or how family owned business assess risk vis-a-vis professional run, among others. The whole premise of research is based upon learning from specific, non-random situation and generalizing the findings for broader application. It’s balance between rigor and relevance, and is achieved through conceptual understanding, empirical evidence and contextualization of findings. It’s an art, more than a science.
Doing Management Research in India has significant advantages and the limitations are not as significant. India is one of the most vibrant and diverse markets in the world and is also a burgeoning factor market (labor market). Many say that the next few decades are for his country. Having understood that most of the management research is ‘West-oriented’, it is imperative that it be contextualized to India and supplemented with Indian content. That’s a great opportunity for researchers. Further, unlike physical sciences, where one needs huge laboratory set-ups and funds for conducting researching research, management research is not that expensive. Here the labs are the various firms and institutions where phenomena are studied. So, doing management research in India is a low cost. High return bet.
Management research has been steadily gaining increased prominence as a 'field of study’, could be due to more and more 'career avenues' emerging not only in the steadily increasing management institutions but also in the ever-growing corporate sectors, year, in the country. Today management research students in India identify and pursue research in diverse issues covering not just the four functional areas of finance, human resource, marketing, production and system. And economic but allied as well as emerging areas such as and environment, intellectual property and policy issues.
These research activities would not only provide solution to the growing management challenges in the competitive environment confronted by corporate leaders as well as policymakers but also expand the frontiers of management-related knowledge in the Indian context. More significantly, it would give the 'much needed' upward thrust to the quality of management education and training in the country.
It is to identify, address and deliberate upon the core management research issues in the country that the Eximius Management Group, USA in association with Sunrise University, Alwar (Rajasthan) have organized this International Management research students from diverse institutions across the country.
