CRISIL Doctoral Symposium

Overview of the program

CRISIL in association with Indian Finance Association (IFA) - consortium of Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA), Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) and Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIMC), launched CRISIL Doctoral Symposium in 2016 to provide an excellent platform for researchers, academicians and practitioners to share their research findings with the global experts.
