Irani asks IIMs to create original knowledge


The Union Minister for Human Resource Development Smriti Irani has urged the IIMs to create original knowledge.

Irani said, "The IIMs have been the vanguard of management thinking. Members of the faculty of these institutes have been contributing to global knowledge in management. However, there is a lot that these institutes can do by generating original knowledge in order to contribute to management science. This requires more coordinated, organised and well-planned effort to dovetail with national and international priorities."

In a recent conclave held with the IIMs, a 13-point agenda was mooted to channelise the efforts of IIMs to create mechanisms that can help deal with the challenges faced by the nation's economy and industry.

"During this conclave, I specifically urge the IIMs to scale up research, specially the socially relevant research, as also to have a greater impact on national policy implementation. I have also directed the IIMs to create a knowledge consortium by bringing together various institutions nationally and internationally," said Irani.
