IIMU, SPJIMR tie up for research masterclass

Aims to deliver an effective presentation and communication efficacy

ñIndian Institute of Management Udaipur (IIMU) announced a virtual research communication masterclass Series in collaboration with S P Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR).

Under the masterclass, twenty globally renowned researchers will present their self-interest co-authored/authored papers. Each monthly session will run for two hours wherein the researchers will present for one hour on recent top tier research and then discuss the ‘why’ behind the presentation in the remaining hour. The discussion will be opened to the faculty and the doctoral students. The quality of research presentations is a critical factor in the socialisation of research. The masterclass will help students improve their ability to frame questions, link questions to appropriate methodology, and tell a story.

Clear communication

On this collaboration, Prof Janat Shah, Director, Director, IIM Udaipur said, “The masterclass series is conceptualised as a high intensity learning experience for the doctoral students at both the B-Schools on how to communicate with clarity about their research.”

Dr Ranjan Banerjee, Dean, SPJIMR added, “It is not easy to combine storytelling with research rigour. Our doctoral students are getting a chance to learn critical skills from the best in the world.”
