Department of Management Studies, IIT Delhi

About B-Schools

Estb. Year: 1993
Location: Delhi


The Department of Management Studies is a result of the revolutionary process of growth of an idea floated in 1963. What was then a seed, gradually came to life and in 1974, IIT Delhi set up an internal committee to scrutinize the functioning of the management area in the institute. In 1975, an expert committee was setup to formally examine the possibility of launching this area in a more sustained fashion. The result was an M.Tech programme in "Management Systems" in the School for System Studies, (subsequently renamed School for Systems and Management Studies). The year 1978 saw the setting up of the Management Core Group and the core inputs to a full time Management Education at IIT(D) were reconfirmed by an Advisory Committee constituted by the representatives of the Academia and the industry. Since then, there has been no looking back. The School for Systems and Management Studies became the Centre for Systems and Management Studies. This was subsequently renamed as the Centre for Management Studies.


In 1993 the Department was brought into existence by amendment to IIT(D) statutes under the leadership of the then Head Prof. Vinayshil Gautam. Clearly, the Department responds to a felt need of the Indian Industry and derives satisfaction from its heavy field orientation in all its curriculum activity. In response to the feedback from the students, alumni and industry, the Department of Management Studies launched MBA programmes in 1997.


The Department currently runs a two year full time MBA programme with focus on Management Systems, a two year full time MBA with focus on Telecommunication Systems Management under the aegis of Bharti School of Telecom Technology and Management and a three year part time MBA programme with focus on Technology Management. Apart from the specialized compulsory courses in the focus area, the students have choice for functional area specialization in finance, marketing, operations, information technology, HR etc.
