At LMTSM we have created several centres of excellence, these centres are established with a view to strengthening teaching, research, consulting and community engagement. Each centre is created around a contemporary management theme with the primary goal of creating, disseminating and applying knowledge. All faculty members of the school have at least one primary affiliation and multiple secondary affiliations to various centres.
These centres also work towards bridging the gap between theory and practice. These Centres are interdisciplinary abode for collaboration among faculty, scholars, students and industry for research and interaction through seminars, workshops, projects, conferences, conclaves, summits, student competitions, and development and training programs.
