Capacity Building Programme for Faculty Members (Sponsored by the Indian Council of Social Science Research)

Capacity Building Programme for Faculty Members (Sponsored by the Indian Council of Social Science Research)


The programme seeks to acquaint the participants with research methods applied in social sciences. Over the past decade, qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods have gained popularity among social and management researchers as trusted tools to deal with the intrinsic as well as the social, economic, and cultural phenomena of interest. These methods have been helping the researchers to yield insights about the causes and effects of, and solutions to, social problems. The participants will gain deeper understanding of various aspects concerning data management, and descriptive and inferential statistics. The programme then offers the participants understandings into the relevance and application of research methods opening up complex sets of issues. The participants
who complete the program will be adequately equipped to deal with these issues. The programme covers a gamut of themes from epistemology to the building blocks of research, including topics like a Primer, Arriving at Research Problem, Research Process Design, Essentials in Data Collection and Analysis, Quantitative / Qualitative Methods, Applied Statistics: Univariate, Bivariate, and Multivariate Analysis, with focus hands on using the software packages like SPSS and R- progrmmaing etc. Teaching at IPE has been participatory and interactive, which combines
lectures, case studies, Group Discussions, Presentations and Role Plays. This course in particular is a practical course and exposes the participants to field trips and on-the-job learning method as much as possible. IPE looks at research as a sui generis enterprise, making this course a valuable take-away

About IPE

The Institute of Public Enterprise (IPE) was established in 1964 for the study of issues and policies relating to public enterprises (PEs). Shri.S.S Khera, ICS, the then Cabinet Secretary, Government of India, had conceived the idea of a research institution that would undertake a systematic and sustained study of issues relevant to the formulation of policies towards public enterprises. In the early sixties, when PEs were designed as the principal instrument to serve the social and economic objectives of development. The Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR), Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, recognized the Institute as a ‘Centre of Excellence’ in social science research in 1976. Starting with research, the Institute soon found itself having to undertake consultancy for PEs and responding to the training needs of the executives of PEs and various educational programmes. The educational programmes of the Institute have their basic foundation in the various research, training and consultancy activities undertaken by the Institute for public and private organizations/industries over the last four
decades. In the year 1995, the Institute started a two-year full time Post Graduate Diploma in Business Management (PGDBM), recognized as equivalent to MBA by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU), to provide skilled human resources to meet the requirements of the industry. Later, other programmes such as Post Graduate Diploma in Management – Retail and Marketing (PGDM-RM), Post Graduate Diploma in Management – Banking, Insurance and Financial Services (PGDM-BIF), Post Diploma in Management – International Business (PGDM-IB) and
Post Graduate Diploma in Management – Human Resource Management were started. IPE’s long association with the Indian industry has been responsible for its pre-eminent position in the area of management education
