Research Mindset
Students at Welingkar are encouraged to keep the 'curious' alive all through their tenure. The Welingkar Research Center, equipped with research resources - reports, databases, software and most importantly highly demanding equally encouraging faculty, make sure there is enough hunger for research. Several faculty are also equally involved and engaged in research themselves, creating the right environment. Combined with the different set of lenses that Welingkar inculcates through the design learning methods across programs, students indeed learn "Research is to see what everybody else has seen and to think what nobody else has thought".

Some of the proud moments when 'research met reward' are enumerated below:

A technology consultant with 2.5 years of experience in an IT Firm enters Welingkar. Fascinated with the resources at the research centre; he participates in various research competitions with a great vigour. His thirst for knowledge transcended all constraints.

Result: 21 awards across the country, 11 national awards for one single Business Plan.
A study on migration patterns of North-Eastern Indians

This on-going study was carried out by the students under the guidance of Prof. Aparna Krishnamoorthy to understand the changes in the migration patterns of North-Eastern Indians in the city of Bangalore, to examine the legitimacy of the belief that North Eastern Indians hold a sway in the retail sector in Bengaluru and its impact on recruitment decisions in the retail sector.

The findings of the first phase of the study were presented in a paper session as well as poster session at the BSPS (London School of Economics) Annual Conference 2010 held at the University of Exeter.
