IIM Nagpur in its eight years journey has set many benchmarks including being one of the first IIMs to offer PhD in Management through QIP scheme. With decades of successful QIP scheme for PhD in engineering, this year (2023), QIP scheme also included PhD in Management for the very first time. With Government of India’s support, this AICTE sponsored scheme aims at capacity development by training lectures and teachers in management departments from various colleges in and around India to upskill their knowledge and provide momentum in their academic career.
IIM Nagpur has invested in building its knowledge infrastructure by having state of the art library with access to e-resources, journal publications and databases. In addition, faculty members of IIM Nagpur have substantial experience in Industry and academia including international experience and regularly publish in reputed journals. IIM Nagpur’s start of the art campus in MIHAN is fully operational unlike many new generation IIMs. The new campus facilities provide a vibrant environment to pursue research.
Under QIP centre, scholars who are selected through the admission process have an opportunity to join a degree granting programme in IIM Nagpur. Research and Innovation are corner stones for making social impact. It is envisaged that QIP scholars will dedicate in developing own self through coursework, independent research and meet the requirements of the PhD program. I wish all the QIP scholars to work towards becoming impactful researchers and take leadership role in management education.
