Research is a scholarly and creative academic endeavor of faculty leading to innovations and development. It is considered as the ultimate goal of higher education, the fruits of which are considered as the stepping stones for the progress not only of the researcher concerned but of the society which cultivates the research inquisitiveness in the students pursuing research. However, it is a challenging task for a higher education institution to have multidisciplinary engagements to nurture and promote scientific excellence through rigorous faculty-driven research. For the matters of the supervision of research ethics and excellence, a research committee is constituted in the college as a facilitation center in which seasoned researchers among the faculty are members. This body imparts keen attention in guiding and coordinating the research activities of various departments of the college. The mission of the committee is to motivate the PG students to set the research goals in their future plans and to facilitate them to acquire knowledge regarding the wider perspectives of research careers. Keeping these in mind the research committee motivates the Post Graduate departments of the college to undertake workshops to equip the students to internalize both methodological and ethical rigors related to the research.
Presently, the Department of Commerce and Management Studies is a research department that has three supervising teachers and intake of 8 students as Ph. D scholars (registration is in the process). Two of our faculty members are research guides in the research departments affiliated to MG University and the University of Calicut. Other departments of the college are in the process of upgrading to research departments.
