On this auspicious occasion, NMIMS took a quantum leap towards being a future-ready university by launching two dynamic publications: ‘NMIMS Management Review’, and ‘We Care Anthology 2022’. NMIMS Management Review is a highly acclaimed published official research journal which is now listed in Cabell’s International, Emerging Sources Citation Index, Web of Science and Google Scholar amongst a few others. The journal encapsulates notions from business, commerce, economics, healthcare, and management. The review is circulated with the aim to foster thought leadership and research on contemporary business and management practises and build a holistic community that encourages the diffusion of new innovative ideas and insights.
On the other hand, We Care Anthology 2022 is collection of series of articles that map the distress on various aspects of human life created by the Covid-19 pandemic, showcases the inspiring array of efforts undertaken by NGOs to build resilience and embrace the emergence of a new era – the “next to normal.” The Anthology intends to inspire the readers to contribute their bit towards building a better world.
Furthermore, as part of the occasion, the management commemorated the astounding contributions of the staff member with a staff awards ceremony. Dr. Sharad Mhaiskar called upon the winners of Best staff awards from each department. Silver jubilee trophies were given to staff members who completed 25 years with the institution.
