The publication of this case study in the prestigious Case Centre assumes even greater significance given that the same KIAMS faculty had published a case study on ‘Daimler’s Entry Into the Indian Trucking Market’ in Case Centre in October 2015 by the same duo Dr.D.N.Murthy and Dr.C.N.Narayana along with renowned Professors of leading American Universities. That case study looked at the Indian heavy trucking market and the classic strategy case of how domestic players respond to the entry of a new foreign firm. The publication of two case studies within a short span of 6 months is truly a great achievement for our faculty and the Institute. These research and case studies are used by various leading universities and business schools across the world for an effective class room teaching.
The publication follows from the Principal Director Dr. CN Narayana’s own personal initiative and continuous efforts in encouraging joint research papers with foreign researches in order to bring KIAMS students better international exposure. This adds to Dr. Narayana’s long list of accolades, which include more than a dozen National and International award for Teaching, Research and Leadership. KIAMS with senior faculty members like Dr.C.N.Narayana, Dr.D.N.Murthy, Dr.V.S.Pai and Prof. Anand Narasimha and other senior faculty members is poised for a transformation into a premier business school of India. Principal Director humbly says “ We have just begun the journey” while 25 years of legacy is at the background, we need to competitive today. He also adds that next set of Professors like Dr.Anitha Kshetri, Prof. Bidyanand Jha and many more in the list are mentored for bigger challenge to build brand KIAMS in the years to come. Focus is joint research, alliances, improved academic rigor which he says are the pillars of premier business Schools. He adds that the recent Workshop for Research Methodology with premier institutes like IISC, ISI and Bangalore, Mysore University give diverse perspective and increasing the reach will be for over all good for KIAMS growth strategy.
