In only six years, IIM Udaipur (IIMU) has made substantial progress towards its goal of becoming a world-class management institute.
"A priority in Prof. Shah's strategic plan has been to make IIMU a leader in management research. The Institute has put in place a range of initiatives to support research that is one of the most comprehensive of any B-school in India", said a statement from the IIM Udaipur.
IIMU is already ranked one of the top 5 B-schools in India for research based on the methodology used by UT Dallas which tracks publication in 24 leading business journals. It is also in the top fifteen in the NIRF rankings published by MHRD.
"Building an educational institute is a 20 year journey but what one does in the initial years has huge impact. We can take great satisfaction in having made an excellent start. I am pleased to have the opportunity to continue working with our impressive young faculty, highly motivated students and dedicated professional staff", said Prof. Janat Shah on his tenure.
