Earn the IIT advantage

IIT Delhi is known not only for its engineering education, it has also proved its mettle in delivering quality management training report Vimal Chander Joshi

After completing her engineering from Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya in Indore, Sonal Bansal wanted to do an MBA. Though she got through two popular B-schools — one located in Ghaziabad and the other in Pune — she didn’t think twice before choosing the Department of Management Studies (DMS), IIT-Delhi.

Studying at IIT-Delhi, which had remained a cherished but unfulfilled dream for Bansal and many like her, finally became a reality at DMS. It goes to DMS’ credit that MBA students are not insulated those pursuing BTech, IIT-Delhi’s flagship programme.

“In the hostel, we stay alongside BTech students and always aligned with the whole gamut of activities that take place on campus,” says Bansal, a final year student of MBA, pursuing a specialisation in finance.

Another student, Siddharth Tiwari, a mechanical engineering graduate, finds the IIT experience as the best he has had across the 16 years of his academic life. “Go to the reading room or the central library, you will always find swarms of people studying there. The entire milieu is intellectually-charged. I find it quite inspiring at IIT,” says Tiwari.

The MBA class of 2012 has 98 students and next year, the number of seats will swell to 125. The channel for admission is Joint Management Entrance Exam (JMET) and anyone with a four years’ bachelor’s degree or a master’s degree can apply.

Those who make it to the top 400-500 in the JMET exam can expect to receive a GD/PI (group discussion/ personal interview) call from DMS, IIT-Delhi.

Famous for:
The ‘IIT Delhi’ brand. The median pay package for last year’s batch was R11.86 lakh per annum

Programmes:
MBA, full-time, with a focus on management systems or telecommunication systems management; MBA (part-time) with a focus on technology management and a short-term skills formation programme for entrepreneurial pursuits

There are a couple of management development programmes (MDPs) apart from online MDPs in three areas, namely supply chain management, finance for non-finance executives, and international finance.

Extra-curricular:
An industrial interaction committee organises an event called Building India Inc, which is a two-day-long, national-level conference where people from different industries participate. The annual business fest is known as Parivartan. The sports committee organises events from time to time.

MBA students actively participate in activities organised by BTech students. These events include Rendezvous, the annual cultural extravaganza, and various Spic Macay concerts

Infrastructure:
DMS has five lecture theatres, an auditorium with a capacity of more than 140 people, syndicate rooms, a library, seminar hall, cafeteria and computer labs.

Students have access to Internet through WiFi across the IIT campus and the central library has 21,000 management-related books

Found on campus:
“At DMS, the teaching methodology is very interactive. By the end of each semester, we have to submit a term paper in each subject, which is sometimes written individually and on other occasions, done in groups. And for each submission, we form groups among different set of people from the class.

This way, we end up working with almost everyone in the batch by the end of two years,” says Gaurav Verma, a final-year MBA student.

Factfile
With the aim to bring management education to IIT Delhi an MTech programme in management systems was introduced in the School for System Studies. Then it became the Centre for Systems and Management Studies and was then rechristened the Centre for Management Studies. It was given department status in 1993 through an amendment to IIT-D statutes. Then the MTech programme was replaced with an MBA

Wishlist
“The infrastructure should improve a bit. Though we have access to facilities at the main campus of IIT Delhi, DMS should also upscale its amenities,” says a first-year MBA student
