Since its inception, IIM Udaipur has aimed to emerge as a global frontrunner in management research. Over the past decade, significant strides have been made toward realizing this vision. A notable testament to our progress is the recognition garnered by the Naveen Jindal School of Management at UT Dallas, securing the fourth position among Indian business schools for research contributions published in esteemed international journals. This achievement underscores the meticulously designed and executed research ecosystem at IIMU, a cornerstone of our rapid advancement within a relatively brief timeframe.

The Research Ecosystem

IIMU stands out among Indian institutions, not only as an ideal launchpad for young faculty embarking on their careers but also as an enticing destination for seasoned academics seeking to further their pursuit of high-calibre research. Our ecosystem fosters a harmonious blend of teaching and research, fortified by a dedicated R&D office aimed at enhancing productivity and visibility. Incentives and developmental funds empower faculty members, facilitating their participation in international conferences to showcase their research on the global stage. For those passionate about conducting top-tier research, IIMU stands as the epitome of excellence, echoing the sentiment articulated by Michael Jordan, who once remarked, "All you needed was one little match to start that whole fire." At IIMU, our research ecosystem is primed to ignite that spark within you.

The Research Ecosystem

At IIM Udaipur, we believe in management research that transcends mere theoretical implications, prioritizing real-world impact. Our faculty members meticulously select research topics to address pressing societal concerns such as sustainability and accessible healthcare. Our research endeavours are anchored in fostering inclusive development across all strata of society. To this end, we have established numerous centres and labs, ensuring that our research remains pertinent to management practitioners, the general populace, and policymakers alike.

Journey Ahead

While we have made considerable strides in realizing our initial objectives, a challenging journey lies ahead. Our sights are set firmly on achieving the ambitious targets outlined in Vision 2030, recognizing that the path forward will be arduous. We extend a warm invitation to all who wish to join us on this transformative journey.
