Conference Theme

In this new World order, we remain witness to a dramatic transition in the way management research has traditionally been carried out.The rapidly ?shrinking world? due to advancements in technology is reshaping the lives of millions of people, bringing to us uncharacteristic challenges which till now had never been visualized. This disruption albeit with negative implications as well has also provided a surreal ecosystem , widening our horizon for business and society to grow incrementally. For the research community , the need to empower ourselves with the tools and practices is critical so as to contribute to our personal as well as institutional development as well as staying relevant with the times.

In this background, the theme of the conference, ?Emerging Frontiers of Management Research? focuses on opening new frontiers and avenues for ?new knowledge? for the purpose of acquisition and dissemination among relevant stakeholders. Additionally, it intends to play a pivotal role in shaping the economies of the future aided by management research to solve evolving problems.The advent of information technology and data driven techniques has provided fresh impetus and opportunities to equip ourselves with the tools to cater to the research ecosystem. The thematic renaissance during this perilous time is being driven by a latent urge to attain excellence through disruptive thought processes and out-of-the-box innovations in the field of management research. Empowering researchers with these tools and innovative knowledge and our persistence to fight all odds and stay relevant with state of the art research is the key to address the challenges and creating a research ecosystem for overall economic growth.
