The participants organized 2nd IIM-A Summer School, 2013 from 6th to 11th May, 2013 at IIM-A.

Professor Arnab Laha, faculty coordinator, IIM-A Summer School 2013 and Professor Vineet Virmani, acting chairperson, FPM inaugurated the event on Monday, 6th May, 2013.

Apart from FPM participants, 40 students from other IIMs, IIT Bombay, XLRI, NMIMS, anasthali Vidyapith and JNU and other institutions attended the workshop.

The workshop was primarily designed to cater to the needs of researchers and doctoral students to have a clear understanding of various methodological concepts and tools used in advanced stages of research. “Given the shortage of good academicians in academia in India, we must work together and share resources”, said Professor Laha. A heritage walk was also a part of the week long workshop.
