Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University Institute of Management and Entrepreneurship Development, Pune, has a dynamic research and learning environment. It undertakes innovative research with the aim to make a positive contribution to the global business landscape.

It is a recognized research centre of Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University for its Ph.D. programme. The Ph.D. programme strictly adheres to the rules and regulations laid down by the UGC. Till now, we have awarded the Ph.D. degree to more than 85 research scholars and almost 100 students are currently working for their doctorate degree under their research guides.

IMED has introduced the Joint Research Projects (JRP) to engage the students and faculty members in a joint research study based on the summer internship projects carried out by the students.


The faculty members identify the summer internship projects that have a good research value and then together the faculty members and the students convert the project into Joint Research Projects. This endeavor helps develop the research skills of the faculty and students alike. Some joint research projects are further converted into research papers and are then considered for publication in research journals.
