It’s ideation, creativity and innovation that drive students of the Department of Management Studies (DMS).
USP: Given its excellent return on investment (ROI) - total fee for two years at R1.7 lakh with average placement this year hitting R14 lakh per annum - DMS is miles ahead of other B-schools in India.

The college has more than 150 faculty, administrative and support staff


DMS runs various programmes in management. On offer are three MBA programmes, two out of which are full time while the third is part-time. Also on offer is a PhD programme in management. The institute also has various MOUs with premierinstitutes like HIT Labs, USA, University of Paris, Pantheon-Sorbonne, Paris, International Centre for Promotion of Enterprises Ljubljana, Slovania, Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok, and Stevens institute of Technology in the US.

IT quotient:
The college website is very comprehensive and easy to navigate. The DMS building, library and hostels are all Wi-Fi enabled.

The Department of Management Studies has five lecture halls, an auditorium with a capacity for 140 people, syndicate rooms, a library, seminar hall, cafeteria, and computing facilities. Being a residential campus, DMS provides hostel facility to all its students within the campus. Students have access to the Internet and the central library, which contains a large section of management books. It has a state-of-the-art, modern computational and laboratory facilities with projection system and PCs, which are networked through institute-wide fibre-optic backbone. The institute has a 16-exercise gym and a large swimming pool. The campus also has a beautiful amphitheatre which can accommodate 2,000 people.

“DMS is all about doing what one wants. IIT has provided abundant opportunities along with the choice to do what one enjoys to do. Students do everything from dramatics to language courses. This freedom is what I personally like about DMS,” says Saurabh Jain, a second-year student.

Clubs and societies:
There are 10 committees and five clubs at DMS, including the dramatics club, music club or indoor sports club. Other choices include the photography society, fine arts society, hobbies society and publicity cell. Opportunities for literary expression are offered by the English debating and literacy club, Hindi samiti and the quizzing club.

The post-graduate programme in management at IIT Delhi has existed for over three decades and has carved a niche for itself. The Department of Management Studies imbibes the overall openness of the culture in IIT Delhi valuing all its stakeholders. In response to the feedback from the students, alumni, and industry, the Department of Management studies launched two MBA programmes in July 1997

I guess one thing we would like to increase is the level of interaction with other b-schools in the country. This can take the form of competitions, sports meets, etc. We believe these facilitate greater peer learning and interaction, says Sowmya Seethamraju, a student
