Faculty

A rich and lively student-teacher interaction is at the heart of SPJIMR's success. Our faculty members are known to be great teachers, who can bring alive the subject, encourage critical thinking and offer a wider, holistic perspective that is critical in today's complex business environment.

Our faculty members are drawn from academia, industry, government sector and non-profits. Collectively, they bring in a wide range of experience in building and delivering knowledge and skills to prepare participants for leadership roles.

The teaching-learning process at SPJIMR is vastly enriched by a series of non-classroom initiatives through which our faculty help build among participants the right attitudes to enable them lead with purpose, meaning and with an idea of service to society.

The average experience of the core faculty is over 18 years, with several who have come to academics after years of experience as practitioners. In addition, we have around 20 adjunct faculty and several more visiting faculty who engage with participants of various courses.

Overview

Tania Saha

Assistant Professor
Operations Supply Chain Management & Quantitative Methods

About

She has done her Ph.D. in Operations Management from IIM Calcutta. In her doctoral dissertation titled “Essays on Operations Management Decision Making for Sharing and Circular Economy”, she examined the implications of the existence of sharing and circular economy business models on the operational decision of firms. The new emerging sharing economy business model (SEBM) facilitates consumers to get access to products instead of the need for exclusive ownership. In her thesis, she used quantitative modelling to study the impact of SEBMs in the domains of consumer-to-consumer, business-to-consumer, and business-to-business on the traditional operation of firms and the behaviours of consumers. Before embarking on her Ph.D. journey at IIM Calcutta, she worked as a Business Analyst in Wipro Technologies, where she was involved in the development of statistical models for predictive analysis of data using R and SAS programming for measuring the overall effectiveness of promotions for a leading consumer electronics retailer in the US. She did her post-graduation and graduation in Mathematics from IIT Bombay and Jadavpur University, respectively.
