“The dream is to invest in quality
students and produce jewels. Over a
period of time, we will create this
reputation. The people who walk out of
this institute will be the people who
create an intellectual revolution in the
country. This will certainly transform it into reality.”
Samuel C. Park Jr. Professor of Economics
Emeritus and Emeritus Professor of
International and Area Studies, Yale
University; Member, Board of Governors,
“In any leading global research university
the atmosphere conducive to innovation
and research took a long time to establish.
Most importantly its faculty have a record of publications in
well-established and refereed journals. Also seminars and
workshops during the academic year are regularly scheduled at
which faculty, visitors, and students present their completed and
ongoing research. In addition at regularly scheduled Prospectus
workshops in different fields Ph.D students would present, often
more than once, ideas on topics[ they are exploring for their
dissertation for comments and suggestions from fellow students
as well as faculty. Also the importance of interactions among
students and with faculty, including social interactions cannot be
overestimated. A good indicator of the state of health and
vigour of research atmosphere in an academic institution could
be judged by asking how extensive and deep is its series of the
seminars/workshops, and whether presentations are sufficiently
deep, rigorous ,forward looking, and near state of the art and
above all, whether participants have unrestricted freedom to
comment on them.”
“We, at IFMR, keep constantly
revamping our existing courses and also
create new ones to deal with the current
economic issues. The students are made
to become familiar with the new market
realities and at the same time not
compromising on the academic rigor.”
Dean, IFMR
“The Ph.D program of IFMR trains our
students to be good researchers and
teachers. Our program exposes students
to a variety of research methods,
contemporary issues in research and
suitable theoretical frameworks that
provide the foundation for students to
independently explore the areas of their interest.”
Director, IFMR B School
“India is one of the fastest growing
economies of the world. It is imperative
that management education should help
in creation, dissemination and
application of knowledge in a way that
helps to bring about profound
transformation of society and the nation.
IFMR, since it’s inception has created a
niche for itself in the field of finance. However, over a period
of time it has become a fully integrated B School, a premier
Management Institute of India. IFMR has focused on
translating critical aspects of management education into
pragmatic managerial excellence, organizational development
and path-breaking research. By way of strategic alliance with
Corporate, Industry, Academia and Civil society, we train and
groom our students to be catalysts in the growth and
development of India.”

Member, Central Board, Reserve Bank of India; Past Member, Board of Governors, IFMR
“IFMR is one of the strong research institutions in the country. An area where the institute
has made very good progress is in its PhD program. An institution that wishes to
contribute to the country does so by graduating researchers and academics, who then go
on to become thought leaders and teachers themselves.
As India expands business education, there is a nationwide shortage of highly qualified
faculty members. IFMR is very well positioned to meet that requirement. The program has
acquired new depth; number of students of a very high caliber have joined us and whenever I get an
opportunity to interact with them, I have been very pleased to do so.”

the research that is cur rent in their field of
specialization and also train him/her in the research
methods that will enable them to make a rigorous
contribution in their dissertation. This would be
done in consultation with their respective faculty
guide(s). The Thesis Advisory committee headed

Guide speak
Prof. G. Balasubramanian, Dean
Prof. S. Maheswaran, PhD - Program Director
Guiding PhD students is more
of a process of co-creation of
value in terms of knowledge
and new discoveries. I always
partner with my doctoral
students, encourage them to
think independently within the
framework of research
methodology and publish as much as possible. I
treat them as my equals and encourage them to
develop as teachers as well. I have eased them to
the corporate world in order to gain some practical
insights. It is an enjoyable and rewarding
experience for both the guide and the students.
Guiding PhD students has always
been a great learning experience
for me. Invariably, they help me
uncover some empirical regularity
or puzzle in the data that seems
to defy explanation. By working
together, we come up with the
sort of theoretical model that can
successfully capture the essence of such a finding,
thus paving the way for more insights to follow.
Fortunately, I have been blessed to have had a
great collaboration with PhD students that has led
to highly original and interesting research. The
name of the game isn’t just about having a great
idea for a PhD thesis or, for that matter, a research
paper. What matters more is to put forth effort over
time in a sustained manner that will see it through
to completion and, eventually, get published.
Lakshmi Kumar, Associate Professor
In my opinion a guide facilitates students to enhance their knowledge of the doctoral
process—the elements, roles and stages of development associated with it – along
with strategies for their own growth and development. Mentoring is the key to success
for all those involved and we hope the resources available at IFMR will be useful for
prospective students. A good working relationship between the guide and the student
is an essential part of academic success. A growing body of research shows that a
good mentoring relationship is also conducive to the mentor’s own success. Hence
being a guide has enhanced my intellect and has hopefully contributed to the students’ career growth too.
