About DMS, IIT Delhi

The Department of Management Studies is a result of the evolutionary process of growth of an idea floated in 1963. 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. 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. Our academic program is comparable to the best that are available in the world class business schools for creating managers to face the new challenges of the ever changing market environment. The entire course aims at creating holistic managers trained by a very eminent faculty, which is also supported by the experienced professionals as external faculty from India and abroad.


With the unique features of technology orientation and a blend of creativity and analytical problem-solving skills, our 6 month training programme is aimed to develop holistic managers who internalize a synthesis of conventional and modern management – thinking and who can comfortably adapt to changing business requirements. The program provides the students with various routes to the industry, matching its requirements with their skills and predispositions. Every student gets the opportunity to take initial sessions in functional areas of excellence to have a fundamental understanding of management as a scientific discipline.

Along with the initial functional areas of knowledge, the students also get a cross functional perspective which is more aligned to the scope of the programme.
