Doctoral Program - Career Opportunities

The Doctoral Programme at IIM Calcutta equips candidates to indulge with equal prowess in careers involving research, academia or industry expertise. Currently, about two-thirds of our Fellows are associated with academic institutions, research organizations and think-tanks, while the rest have taken up leadership roles associated with corporates.

When it comes to securing faculty positions, our Doctoral Students are ubiquitous among the top tier B-Schools in the country including the IIMs (Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, Lucknow, Indore, Kozhikode, Tiruchirappalli, Ranchi, Visakhapatnam, Bodhgaya), IIT Kharagpur, IIT Kanpur, ISI Calcutta, Great Lakes Institute of Management, MDI, XLRI, SPJIMR among others. Many have also secured academic positions in global universities and business schools featuring among the top 30 B-Schools in the 2016 FT Rankings. Some notable academics include Ajay Kalra (Herbert S. Autrey Professor of Marketing, Rice University), Monideepa Tarafdar (Professor at Lancaster University Management School) and Sebastian Morris (Professor of Economics at IIM Ahmedabad).

Many of our Doctoral Students have also gone on to head specialized research institutions and policy think-tanks.

D’Mello (Deputy Editor, Economic & Political Weekly), Jayesh Ranjan (Secretary [IAS Cadre],Information Technology Department, Telangana State), Nilanjan Ghosh (Observer Research Foundation), and Harsh Thukral (Deputy Director, National Productivity Council).

Kearney, Accenture, Deloitte & Touche, Infosys, Tata Research and Design Centre, Wipro, Accenture, IBM, Virtusa and Mathologic, among others. Notable Fellows include M Raychaudhuri (Managing Director, Asian Equity Strategist, BNP Paribas), Myshkin Ingawale Tejas (Ex-Chief of Staff, Xiaomi India) and Nandini S (Vice-President and Group Head, Organizational Development, Infosys).

Some others have been smitten by the entrepreneurial bug and have carved a niche for themselves. Certain Doctoral Students in this space include M.R. Madhavan (co-founder PRS Legislative Research), Manish Kumar (Mathologic Technologies Pvt. Ltd.), and Myshkin Ingawale Tejas (Co-founder Biosense).
