We are grateful for the overwhelming response for the participation in this event.

The Birla Institute of Management Technology (BIMTECH) has pleasure in announcing its Annual Research Conference and Doctoral Consortium on 22nd & 23rd April, 2022.

Recent developments have heightened the need for 21st-century companies to understand and demonstrate how they create or destroy value beyond financials - how they earn their profits, not just how much profit they earn. The need is responsible business.

Additionally, the world is experiencing a level of disruption and business risk not seen in generations. While some companies fail others innovate, advance, and even thrive. The difference is resilience.

B-schools and business researchers are expected to ensure production of credible knowledge that can be used to inform progressive government policies and promote positive business and management practices.

This Conference and Doctoral Consortium on Responsible and Resilient Business Research is dedicated to inspiring, encouraging, and supporting credible and useful research in the business and management disciplines. Research which will help us in deepening our understanding of what business is, and what business should be, over the coming decades. Research that will lead to transforming business practices and leadership to become more purposeful.

The theme of the Conference is – Responsible and Resilient Business Research Conference and Doctoral Consortium 2022. A Doctoral Consortium and two workshops are also planned as a part of the conference. The Doctoral Consortium is aimed at providing early stage doctoral researchers with an opportunity to present and seek valuable suggestions on their proposed research topic/ research proposal/ research synopsis/ on-going doctoral research project from experienced and reputed researchers in academia from all over the world. This, it is felt, will greatly enhance the quality of the planned or ongoing doctoral research and its outcomes.

In 2022 it is proposed to organize the conference in F2F physical mode. At the last moment, however, taking stock of the situation of the pandemic, we may decide to hold the conference in a blended mode or a purely online mode.
