Prof Vijayta Doshi recently completed Babson Fellows Program for Entrepreneurship Researchers (Fall) at Babson College, United States. She completed her bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology from Punjab University. She thanked her mother for motivating her to be a teacher as her mother herself was a teacher. She has always been a research-oriented person. However, the MBA-buzz drove me towards completing an MBA after which she pursued her Fellow Program in Management from IIM Ahmedabad.
Her research on the negative capability was well-received for which she was selected as one of the “100 leaders of tomorrow” at the 43rd St. Gallen Symposium, Switzerland. Along with the journey, the love for teaching and taking up teaching as a career overpowered her interest to do other things.
She joined IIM Udaipur in 2015, which was a very different experience. She worked even when relocating an entire Institute from the shared campus in MLSU to the campus here in Balicha. IIM Udaipur, a research-oriented institute, makes her feel as if she belongs to that area. She makes use of each opportunity and does not keep waiting for one to come.
Her research interests include gender, diversity & inclusion in organizations, entrepreneurship, leadership, knowing/not knowing from a critical management perspective. She received the Best Paper Award by the AOM 2021 CMS Division: Sole-authored paper adjudged among the Best Papers by the CMS division at the 81st Annual Academy of Management (AoM) 2021.
