Globsyn Research Cell (GRC) is a novel initiative of Globsyn Business School (GBS) in its endeavor to make the institute research oriented, and impact the society and stakeholders with its research output, strategic input and knowledge dissemination. Globsyn Research Cell is part of Globsyn Knowledge Cell headed by Prof. Shaoli Chakraborty. Cut across socio-economic strata, the output of the research cell would not only impact the elite but also people at the Bottom of the Pyramid (BOP). GRC is yet another feather to the cap of Globsyn’s Beyond Education initiatives, strengthening the institute’s endeavor to serve the society and provide sustainable solution to public at large.

Globsyn Research Cell has a robust constitutional framework with four different verticals headed by four different faculty members as shown in the infographic.
