Dr Lohrasp holds a Ph.D. in Business Policy and Administration from the University of Mumbai. He is an avowed believer, ineffective policing as a precursor to viable business administration. This belief is pegged on the supposition that humans tend to always deviate from the norm for speculative reasons. For this reason, his work is subjected to the rigorous field, in-lab, and on-field lab experiments which are done through meticulously designed and tested survey and research tools. Further, he analyses data in such a way that he gains invaluable insights that underpins the entire enterprise of business policy and administration.

Lohrasp's research hinges on the fact that every business decision produces a resounding and amplified accounting outcome. As a teacher and trainer, he has made it a personal quest to delve further into experimental accounting and finance to gain insights that can be applied to accounting, management and economic policy.
