TAPMI Centre for Inclusive Growth & Competitiveness, brings together two approaches to engage with our host district, UDUPI and subsequently with government administrations and other economic development related institutions / associations around the region and country. The first approach will constitute a comprehensive management and economic sciences based set of diagnoses and interventions that will catalyse systemic outcomes. TAPMI brings together the required academic and programme management expertise required to do this.The centre’s collective experience spans several geographies national and international and several domains including participatory assessment, economic analysis and planning, infrastructure and PPPs, institutions and policy, sector strategies and programme evaluation.

The second approach will focus on TAPMI’s and the Manipal community’s philanthropic and social concerns to specific areas such as primary education, differently abled individuals, art and artisans and other disadvantaged groups.

Situated within the General Management Area the Centre will take an inherently inter disciplinary approach to engagement, advocacy, normative technical assistance, evidence based programming, research, capacity building and to student participation and learning.
