Bank of Baroda has given a contribution of Rs2 crore to the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad for Research cases. The funding is part of the institute’s efforts to reach out to the industry and collaborate on field-based research, a release issued by the Institute said.
Professor Ashish Nanda, director, IIMA said, “The funds will sustain development of cases in the banking and financial sector. Case studies are a wonderful means to conducting cutting-edge field based, inductive research.”
“The case materials that are produced will be available for research and benefit teaching not only at IIMA, but also at other institutions. As we have been doing in the past, with our case researches, I thank the board of directors at Bank of Baroda and their apex academy for supporting this important initiative,” he added.
Bank of Baroda has been keen on supporting quality research in the banking and finance sector. Since IIMA is focusing intensively on strengthening its case centre, the coming together of both institutions will contribute to top quality research connected to latest developments in banking and finance.
“One should not see Bank of Baroda’s contribution in the light of only funding research output of IIMA. It is an amalgamation of a shared vision to make a difference in the quality of available research cases to benefit the sector, said Ranjan Dhawan, MD, & CEO, Bank of Baroda.
