Institutional Ranking in higher educational institutions became common practice and business schools are highly benefited by announcing worldwide ranks based on various ranking criteria. Ranking at higher educational institutions which have already accredited with minimum required infrastructure, innovative curriculum design, should depend on their ability to produce new knowledge as the output of the institutions. Based on the postulates of ABC model of institutional performance measurement, we have devised a model of improving the higher educational output. This model contains the idea on how to involve students and faculty members in improving organizational research output. By means of adopting a curriculum model of research focussed curriculum design and adoption in which students are made to work on industry projects and research projects in each semester along with the study of core and elective subjects, and by means formulating strategy on active involvement of faculty members in intensive research, we have developed a method of increasing research performance and hence enhancing the research productivity in higher educational institutions. We have analysed this model by considering our recent experience and efforts of increasing the research productivity at Srinivas Institute of Management Studies as a case example. The strategies to be followed to increase the number of research publications and subject book publications by effective faculty involvement and business case development by student involvement are discussed.
