Vinod Gupta School of Management (VGSoM) was set up as the first school of management within the IIT system in 1993 at a time when India had just opened its doors to economic liberalization.
The foundation stone of the School building was laid in 1994 by the then president of India, Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma. The School moved to its own building in 1996. Over the years the school has expanded its scope to include much more than its flagship Masters in Business Administration (MBA) programme. The school offers a Doctoral programme in management (PhD) and an MBA programme for working executives (aptly termed as the Executive MBA programme) in the IIT Kharagpur campus in Kolkata and IIT Bhubaneswar campus in Bhubaneswar.
Our vision is to develop as a centre of excellence in management education and research catering to the needs of organizations in different sectors of the economy with special emphasis on technology-driven and knowledge-based industries that are characterized by high degrees of globalization, dynamism, complexity and innovation.
To develop outstanding management professionals and future CEOs, who will lead organizations especially in technology-driven and knowledge-based industries, in the service of the nation and community
