Background: Qualified and competent academic staff selection is a very important task for the successful running of an academic organization. Method: The complexity of the selection process calls for the adaption of Multi criteria decision making method where in, the optimal decision can be taken depending on the available qualitative and quantitative data. The present study deals with the ranking and selection of academic staff for a technical institute considering nine attributes. Findings: The adaptability of Graph theoretic approach is presented for the first time to rank and select academic staff from among ten candidates. Application / Improvement: Graph theoretic approach is very much helpful in selecting the best alternative from among various alternatives.


Graph Theory Matrix Approach, Permanent Function, Rank, Staff Selection.
