MBA From IITs 2021

When we think of the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), the only thing that we instantly relate them to are the engineering courses. However, in the past two decades, IITs have introduced some interesting changes that have also helped them earn a name and reputation with regards to the MBA programmes that are offered here.

If you are planning to pursue MBA from IITs, it is definitely a great choice as the management departments of IITs are in the league of the top IIMs of India. In fact, among the top government-owned B-schools in India, the management schools of IIT Delhi and IIT Bombay rank at the 5th and 8th position respectively. IITs offer many management programmes like M.B.A. (Masters in Business Administration), P.G.P.Ex (Executive M.B.A.), P.G.D.M. (Post Graduate Diploma in Management), M.B.A. Telecom Management, etc. Candidates who are interested in pursuing these courses can check out all the details given in this article about MBA from IITs.

How is IIT MBA Different from IIM MBA?

The real question is how is IIT MBA different from the IIM MBA? Well, while the IIMs have been in existence for a very long time now, MBA from IITs is a comparatively new concept and offering. The curriculum structure offered by the IITs and IIMs is different in terms of approach. For instance, a management course such as MBA in Telecommunication System Management at IIT Delhi is likely to be available at an IIT rather than an IIM.
