SMS India Research Initiative





This initiative is born out of our dream, one inspired and shaped by C.K. Prahalad, to advance scholarship from within India and on India. India's emergence as an economic power and as a source of innovation exemplifies a fundamental shift in the global economy's center of gravity. In this unfolding scenario, the world is increasingly looking towards emerging markets like India to find solutions to socially intractable solutions through innovative business models. It is also a rare and strategic opportunity for the field of strategic management to explore new paradigms and enhance its impact.
