About the Conference

The IMR Doctoral Conference (IMRDC) aims to encourage research and scholarship among doctoral students in Management Science, with a special emphasis on issues related to India. To this end, IIMB Management Review (IMR) initiated and instituted the country's first annual Doctoral Students Conference for Management Scholars in 2009. IMR is uniquely positioned in this endeavour by virtue of its history of 30 years in promoting management research and its association with the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB), the premier B-school of the country. The conference encourages participation from schools in India and international students in the Management discipline.

As of 2013, IMRDC has been co-organised by IMR and the Office of the Doctoral Programme, IIMB.


The IMR Doctoral Students Conference aims to bring together, every year, doctoral students affiliated to institutions across India and from international schools for an event of paper presentations, discussions with senior academics and researchers from industry, and publication-oriented development. The objectives of the IMRDC are:

  • to identify and encourage interesting and important research by doctoral students in Management across areas including Decision Sciences, Economics and Social Sciences, Entrepreneurship, Finance and Accounting, Information Systems, Marketing, Organisational Behaviour and Human Resources Management, Production and Operations Management, Public Policy, and Strategy.
  • to enable the authors of the identified papers to engage with leading academicians from institutions in India and abroad in a focussed manner and to gain developmental inputs for their research
  • to facilitate collaborative work amongst researchers from different institutions
  • to provide a platform of exchange between doctoral students, leading academicians and researchers from industry to identify new applications and avenues of research
  • to provide a publication outlet for promising research by inviting authors of the best papers to submit their work to IMR

To reflect the eclectic nature of Management research, we welcome a wide range of papers from the formal analytical, quantitative or qualitative streams, as well as conceptual papers.
