Hey there, folks! I am Dr. Priti Ranjan Sahoo, your friendly neighbourhood brainiac chilling out at KIIT School of Management, KIIT University. With over 30 years of hustling between corporate and academic shuffles, I've seen a thing or two.
Back in the day, I rocked the Indian Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC) for almost a decade, then I switched gears to educate eager minds at Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, Ranchi. Since 2009, I've been throwing knowledge bombs at KIIT University, and let's just say I'm loving the vibe here.
You might catch me flexing my Ph.D. muscles on "Analyzing Electronic Distribution Systems," and yeah, I've got a couple of master's degrees—MBA & MTA in my backpack. Oh, and let's not forget the prestigious alumni badge from IIM Ahmedabad - that's where the magic happens!
Now, here's the fun part—I've got this creative streak flowing with Eight Patents (Five Indian, Two Australian, and a cool German one). I'm like a teaching nomad, dropping knowledge bombs as a Visiting Professor at Sinop University, Turkey. Jet-setting and teaching, what a life!
Keeping things spicy, I steer the ship as the Editor-in-Chief of the "Indian Journal of Hospitality Management." Yep, that's my jam! And if you're on the Ph.D. journey, consider me your guide. I've already helped three scholars reach the summit; six more are trekking their way under my wing.
Academic papers? Oh yeah, I got a stash indexed in Scopus, ABDC, and UGC-approved journals. Also, I moonlight as a reviewer for those top-notch international research journals—it keeps me sharp!
Joiner extraordinaire here—I'm a part of various professional and academic groups, and I've dished out wisdom to top-notch service industries through my consultancy gig. I completed three research consultancy projects, and I'm juggling two more. It keeps life interesting!
Catch me at conferences, dropping those keynote nuggets of wisdom. Plus, I've conducted incredible training programs for Govt./Corporate Sector agencies—always a blast!
Walk into my class, and you'll dive deep into the realms of Strategic Management, Information Technology, Business Policy, International Business, Services Marketing, Tourism and hospitality, Entrepreneurship, and E-Commerce. It's like a knowledge buffet, and I'm serving it hot!
So, in this wild world of academia, I'm not just a professor—I'm the cool, patent-loving, research-digging, consultancy-juggling mentor every scholar dreams of having! Let's learn, grow, and make some waves together. Cheers!
