Faculty at FLAME University enjoys enormous opportunities and avenues for cutting-edge research in their respective areas of specialization strengthening the vision, awareness and synergy of the inter-disciplinary approach of education.

Excellence achieved through this research, in turn, creates new learning and further enriches the diversity of knowledge by synthesizing and integrating insights from a range of disciplines. This unique academic cooperation between multiple disciplines does transcend the boundaries of disciplines, and results in an insightful and consequential research output. This process of creating synergy between excellence and diversity - a dynamic motion that advances academic learning through constant interconnectivity - is the basic driving force that refines education and research at the University.



The Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India, had ordered the mandatory merger of 63 Moons Technologies Limited (63 Moons) with its crisis struck subsidiary company, National Spot Exchange Limited (NSEL), the electronic commodity spot exchange of India. However, 63 Moons’ board and promoters did not agree with the forced merger order as they believed that they were not at major fault behind the NSEL payment crisis. The case provides an opportunity to participate in the real-world complex decision-making process which involves the forced merger of two entities that may affect the interest of various stakeholders. The case allows examination of the issues such as related party transactions, internal monitoring and control processes, organizational structure and the regulatory framework which led to the payment crisis.



There has been an increase in the incidence of eating disorders worldwide in recent times, particularly among the cohort of adolescent girls. It is known that psychological factors of shame and guilt associated with binging and purging are often seen in individuals with bulimia. These cognitions could also cause the individual to refrain from seeking one-on-one professional help. Given the Indian sociological context, virtual intervention in the form of online counselling and other such platforms may prove to be a direct, confidential and affordable solution, in comparison to traditional one-on-one counselling. This paper thus discusses the idea and design for a phone app – ‘Eat Well’ targeted specifically to help individuals with bulimia, in a manner that would be relevant to the Indian context



FLAME University can truly be said to be a pioneer of liberal arts education in India. This chapter provides a historical perspective to the current Indian higher education system and its deficiencies. It explains why and how FLAME came to depart from conventional university education and nurture the intellectual and personal development of the individual rather than provide a narrowly academic and vocational course of study. FLAME’s model of liberal arts education is based on an inter- and multidisciplinary approach to cultivating thoughtful, sensitive, tolerant, ethical, and well-informed citizens who can occupy leadership positions in all walks of life. But as shown, it also has its roots in Indian culture and philosophy, as shown in the Discover India Program which also serves as an example of the intersection of interdisciplinary learning and personal development. The chapter concludes with the lessons learned and challenges that remain.
