The synthesis of teaching and research is fundamental to MIBS. Much of this faculty-driven research takes place within academic departments and interdisciplinary programs. The Centres use a variety of internal and external resources and provide new perspectives and understanding for the present-day business scenarios. Besides providing multi-disciplinary perspectives for various research themes, these centres also enable collaborations between academia and industry. Academicians, students, industry experts and consultants come together at the centres to work on different themes.
