Other Research Support

  • Limited Teaching Hours: TAPMI has adopted a policy of restricting teaching workload for core faculty members to a maximum of 150 classroom contact hours in a year. This would enable faculty to dedicate sufficient time for producing quality research output.
  • Financial Incentives: TAPMI has developed a robust financial incentive system to promote quality research publication in highly ranked peer-reviewed journals. Faculty members are awarded credit points for publication in A*, A, and B ranked journal (without any capping). The credit points are converted in-to monetary incentives at the end of each year.
  • Encouragement for Collaborative Research: TAPMI encourages collaborative research and accordingly working on developing collaborative projects with selected business schools across the globe. In coming years, TAPMI plans to organize discipline-focused research conferences.
