Research at TAPMI aims at providing a better interface with the academic and business world. TAPMI has realized that research is the ability to think openly and inquire deeply into anything that is related:
1. Directly to better managerial practices
2. Indirectly to things that would eventually give rise to better managerial practice
3. To theoretical frameworks, that enable reassessment and refinement of managerial thinking.
There have been several initiatives in TAPMI to create research interdependencies such as student collaborative research, seminars and conferences, research by faculty, and the establishment of learning centers.
