Message from Patron

I am happy to note that the AMET Business School is bringing out a Professional Journal, catering to Research in Maritime and General Management

A Professional Journal is a good instrument for propagation of research and for developing analytical skills.While it encourages upcoming research scholars to try out their abilities in presentation of the research findings, it gives all of us an opportunity to read the treatises of veteran scholars.

I find that contributions are being sourced from diverse verticals of Management. The conceptual base of the articles, the hypotheses as well as the statistical tools employed for interpretations of data have all shown high degree of application of mind and diligence in approach.

The Journal has broad based Editorial Board with International and National Experts and has secured International status for the Journal from the concerned authorities.

I Congratulate the Editors and Advisors for the excellent work. I wish the Faculty and students of the B- School all the best.
