The Sankara Darshana Management Conference is an annual event being held at numerous centers since 1989, covering relevant contemporary topics.

Ours is an era of information explosion; where anybody can communicate with anyone at anytime, anywhere in the world. It is increasingly realized that management science ought to draw concepts and principles not only from technology but also from ethics and morals, culture and values, ideals and ideology, philosophy and spirituality. Subjects such as ethics, social commitment etc. are already part of the teaching and research in management studies.
