Bright move on the part of IITs (as usual ) to leverage its B.Tech reputation further...

Dunno how good VGSOM is but SJSOM is pretty decent. So I should think getting an MBA+B.Tech in 5 years that too without having to slog your a$$es off writing mocks is a pretty good deal.

As it is, we have most of the top business consultancies and FMCG cos coming to the IITs for placements. With a greater emphasis on math and finance, this might attract I-banks as well, so that should take care of a major chunk of the MBA-placement spectrum.

as far as competition with IIMs go - I believe this move by the IITs is going to attract quite a few IITians (who will enroll in this program at the time of admission when they wont even have heard of IIMs or CAT). So that would ensure student quality. Now its upto thte management to make sure infrastructure and faculty are world-class (Maybe they can use the IIM model)

But then you will always have those overambitious morons who's only goal in life is to get into IIMA

cheers,

the freak

Hi ,

Its great to have such a meaningful course to be introduced by the IITs.....Well it wasnt going to be long before the IITs realized that they were worth their own B Techs and started a course which would attract their own B Techs.Moreover this was the demand from the industry....Its a win win situation for all....Students save an entire year while the industry has the best to pick from and IITs take a giant leap forward in management education.
Soon all IITs will be following suit.....This concept was actually started by IIT Kgp's SOM ie VGSOM and now its trickling down to the other IITs...Well IITs have started making their presence felt ( In particular SJMSOM,VGSOM and DOMS IIT D ) in management education too.....It will be too much to ask for that they compete against the IIMs but if they keep on their growth curve in the manner in which they have continued and keep adding on programmes such as this one...Its not long before IIMs will have serious competition....

these IIT MBA schools prefer IITians while IITians prefer IIMs. :)

IITs offer combo: MBA free with BTech

MUMBAI: Go to any business school and chances are that of every 10 students, six have an engineering background. It was a matter of time, therefore, for engineering schools to factor this in by introducing programmes that produce engineers with a degree in management.

At least that is what the Vinod Gupta School of Management at IIT Kharagpur has thought of. In May this year, the B-School launched a dual degree programme a BTech combined with an MBA. ''Most IIT engineers opt for management after graduation. We spotted an opportunity there,'' says dean P K Gupta.
