The Consortium of Students in Management Research (COSMAR) is an annual Research Consortium organized by the Department of Management Studies, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. The Consortium is a forum for interaction between research scholars who specialize in different areas of management and related disciplines. COSMAR began as the National Doctoral Consortium (NDC) in 1997 and has since then evolved into its present form. COSMAR has always been a purely not-for-profit student-driven academic event.

We encourage prospective student and delegate participants to browse through this website in order to find out more about COSMAR 2012. Prospective participants are welcome to contact us with their queries for any clarifications.
