Additionally, the research papers encompass collaborations with 38 of the top 500 global universities as per the QS 2023 Ranking.

Professor (Dr) C. Raj Kumar, Founding Vice-Chancellor, O. P.

I have no doubt that the intellectual contributions of the JGBS faculty members positively impact not only the world of business research but also engage meaningfully with the current social and environmental challenges. I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to the Dean and all the faculty members of JGBS for their commitment to the vision of JGU of being a multidisciplinary, research-driven university".

The stellar number of 116 publications in the first half of 2022 comes at a time when academicians in JGBS, and other educational institutions, have been balancing teaching and research commitments since the start of the pandemic in March 2020. The persistent efforts of each faculty member of JGBS are a testament to their commitment and dedication towards cutting-edge research and scholarship, making it one of the leading business schools in India.

Professor (Dr) Mayank Dhaundiyal, Dean of JGBS, stated, "Jindal Global Business School has continuously grown its research output over the past few years, thereby maintaining its status as India's preeminent research-driven business school. This achievement exemplifies the intellectual prowess of the world-class JGBS faculty members and advances our mission of creating impactful intellectual contributions. As part of an institution of eminence (IoE) and a world-ranked university, JGBS is dedicated to advancing management knowledge through cutting-edge management research. "

Professor (Dr) Indranath Gupta, Dean of Research at JGU, congratulated the JGBS faculty community and said that "It has been a true confluence of extraordinary, inspirational leadership and motivated scholars and researchers coming together."

This achievement is the result of consciously evolved policies and practices at JGBS that have systematically prioritised faculty research by creating an enabling environment for topical and quality research. JGBS has also set up a dedicated Office of Research under the leadership of Prof. Anirban Ganguly, Vice Dean (Research), and supported by Prof. Chitresh Kumar, Prof. Asim Talukdar, Prof. Anjuman Antil, and Prof. Dyotona Dasgupta, which organises several faculty research seminars and faculty research colloquia for discussing the working papers of faculty members, and providing support for doing quality research.

Professor Anirban Ganguly, Vice Dean (Research), JGBS, explained the school's efforts during the period. " Times have been tough over the last couple of years, including transitioning to a hybrid mode last semester. However, JGBS faculty members managed to publish over a century of papers in this period, which speak volume regarding their dedication and research acumen. This further goes on to exhibit the research-centric nature of JGBS, and the immense talent our faculties possess. I congratulate JGBS and my wonderful bunch of faculty colleagues for this amazing achievement."

Professor Dabiru Sridhar Patnaik, Registrar, JGU observed, "The accomplishment of 116 publications in top-notch SCOPUS-indexed journals by the faculty members of JGBS sets a research benchmark for JGU. This is yet another excellent instance of JGBS inculcating the university's core value of focusing on outcomes and impact as well as academic freedom. I congratulate the faculty of JGBS and have high hopes that it will become one of the world's top research-driven business school."
