About College

Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur is one of the second generation IITs established in 2008 in the expanding horizon and giving access to high-quality education to the aspiring young talents. The sprawling 852 acres residential campus is meticulously planned and envisioned to stand as a symbol of academics – simple, but deep. As is known, IIT as a brand earned a high reputation worldwide because of its graduates who are doing wonders in the professional world.

In today’s scenario, IIT campuses are much closer and capable to play a bigger role in realizing an ambitious national goal, pertaining to - making corporations ready for industry 4.0, opportunities arising out of the digital economy, augment start-up movement, and feed into national programs. What they need is to diversify academics to newer disciplines where technology influence is deep and wide – Business, Liberal Arts, Public Policy, and Law.

A new School of Management & Entrepreneurship (SME) has been established to provide a unique proposition to and complement already existing technology programs at IIT Jodhpur. IITs are clearly in a better position to respond to changing needs than a stand-alone B-School, as they have the expertise in technology anyway.

MBA in IIT campuses will be rightly complimented by the existing academic unit viz. Computer Science, Communications & Smart Technologies, AI & Robotics, Manufacturing & Industrial Engineering, and Mathematics. These are not possible in stand-alone B-School settings. Further, as ‘Entrepreneurship’ related programs grow and mature, a separate school dedicated to the subject may be a spin-off.
