SportsBizEdu- One Day Research Conference at IISM Campus

Published On: January 3, 2024

IISM invites all academicians, working professionals, research scholars, and students to participate in the upcoming national level research conference, “SportsBizEdu.”

SportsBizEdu is an initiative by IISM that delves into the intersection of Sports, Business and Education. The research conference is in collaboration with the University of Mumbai and the Garware Institute of Career Education and Development (GICED).

The conference theme for the inaugural year is “Transforming Indian Landscape of Business, Education & Sports: The National Education Policy (NEP).”

About the conference theme:

The introduction of the National Education Policy (NEP) is meant to bring a transformative era, fundamentally reshaping the landscape of education, sports, and business. As the NEP strives to promote a holistic and multidisciplinary approach to learning, it will inevitably impact the integration of sports and business into the educational framework. This paradigm shift presents a unique opportunity for researchers to explore the dynamic intersections between education, sports, and business, assessing the policy’s implications on curriculum design, skill development, and entrepreneurial ventures within these sectors.

We invite scholars, educators, and practitioners to contribute to this evolving discourse by submitting research papers that delve into the multifaceted implications of the National Education Policy on education, sports, and business.

Join us in unravelling the potential avenues for innovation and growth in this new educational landscape. Submit your papers and be a part of shaping the future of these interconnected domains.
