College of Business, Hospitality and Tourism

Research Area
This College carries out research in the broad areas of Economics, Finance, Accounting, Management and Information Systems, Polity, and International Trade and Relations. We have highly qualified staff with vast experience and who are committed to teaching and research. The researchers have the drive to solve problems and offer their service as consultants. Government and other organisations are welcome to contact any of our staff if they need any research or consultancy to be conducted in these areas. More information about individual staff research areas is listed in our staff profile section.

College Research Committee
The CBHTS CRC is chaired by Professor Ram Karan. The committee has seven members and they meet once in every three months. The core role of the committee is to scrutinise and approve research grant applications submitted by staff and students in the College and discuss other research matters in the College. Vetting proposals is a very important process to ensure that submissions are of a high standard and that FNU policies are complied with. CRC normally approves proposals of up to $8000 only and if the grant applied for is over $8000, the committee refers the scrutiny reports to the University Research and Publication Committee for a decision.
