Despite, continuously emphasizing on research in management institutions and other academic
institutions of higher education in India, management institution have not yet met world
standards in research. There is a paradoxical situation, among all the researches in management
field from India are contributed majorly by premier government institutions which are less in
number, though the number of private management institutions in India is more than sufficient in
numbers. In this paper an effort is made to understand the present situation of management
researches in India, opportunities and challenges in private management institutions. For
understanding the present status of management researches, reports of reputed agencies are
studied, for assessing the opportunities in private institutions data from AICTE is taken to be
analyzed, whereas for figuring out the challenges, a sample of 50 faculty members from private
institutions is taken, then their views on an open ended question is analyzed.
