Prabandhgyan International Journal of Management (ISSN 2319 – 6351) is a golden feather in the cap of JIMS, Jaipur. It is a highly acclaimed journal since the time its first issue was released in 2012. There has been focus on making Prabandhgyan a meaningful as well as an interesting read for the professionals in Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) as well as for the academia. MSME is mentioned specifically because this sector contributes significantly to the promising and fast –growing Indian economy.
The Editorial Team of journal has always encouraged research papers, articles and case studies where there are collaborative efforts of academicians / researchers and corporate executives. This has resulted in an increased demand for the journal over these years and this claim is duly substantiated with the sponsorship we have received from the likes of TVS Motors, Shree Cement Ltd., New Holland Fiat (India) Pvt Ltd ITC’s Classmate etc.Further, we take pride in the fact that foreign authors have shown keen interest in publishing with us and thus the confluence of ideas and research that we always wanted to happen via Prabandhgyan is actually taking place. We hope to set new benchmark in research on contemporary management practices with this initiative called Prabandhgyan.
