Students of the first batch of the doctoral-level Fellow Programme in Management (FPM) at Indian School of Business (ISB) have bagged faculty positions in top global institutions.

“Two of our FPM scholars, Pratik Goel and Saipriya Kamath, have been sought after from many leading global institutions for faculty positions and finally accepted offers at London School of Economics (LSE) and IESEG School of Management, Paris,” Sanjay Kallapur, Chair – Faculty Performance Management, Director of the FPM at ISB said.

ISB launched five-year-long FPM in 2011 with these two students as a full-time residential programme.

“With these successful candidates, we are on the track to achieve ISB’s aim of enhancing research and increase the availability of trained and qualified researchers in business schools around the world,” he added.

As on date, ISB has 13 students who are pursuing the fellow programme researching on a wide range of topics that include accounting, finance, marketing and operational research, among others.

Need

The ISB professor feels that there is an immediate need to step up research in management. “Since 1995 , the flow of Indian students to research programmes outside within and outside the country has been decreasing. Institutions like ISB could come up because of PhDs produced in 1960 and 1970s. But now, there has shortage of faculty/researchers,” he said.

Those who are selected for admission into FPA will be given ₹48,000 stipend per month besides accommodation by ISB.
