JAGSOM’s Focus on Knowledge Creation

JAGSOM has positioned itself as a ‘Professional School’ which emphasizes teaching pedagogy and organizational impact, in preference to scholarly impact and research. Faculty members and students are actively involved in research to create and disseminate knowledge with a professional, practice-oriented focus.

JAGSOM has identified three distinct areas for thought leadership and aims to create, develop and disseminate ICs in these areas that have impact on practice, teaching and scholarship:

  • Service Excellence
  • New Age Start-Ups and Industry 4.0
  • Business Responsibility and Socio-Economic Impact

In addition to publishing in journals, the faculty regularly participate and present in Seminars, Conferences and Webinars, both in India and abroad. They also contribute articles in the business/industry publications and portals/websites.

FOCUS: International Journal of Management

FOCUS: International Journal of Management, is a biannual publication, brought out by JAGSOM, with a view to publish rich, insightful and contemporary research articles, dealing with industry focused, applied issues of management. The research papers are planned to foster a better understanding of the theories and practices of management and thus particularly focus on problem-solving approaches, relevant to the practicing executives and as well academicians engaged in the related fields.

Being a business management journal, FOCUS intends to rationalize both conceptual ideas and theory developments, along with operationalization aspects of the developed concepts and theories in the contemporary business applications. Business case studies and practice oriented applied research are of immense interest of the journal.
