The Vinod Gupta School of Management (VGSOM), IIT Kharagpur, has invited applications from interested and eligible candidates to apply for its full time Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme.
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 school was established with an aim to develop managers with a strong technological background who would lead tomorrow’s corporate behemoths on the path of success. The concept was to start a business school along the lines of Sloan School of Management, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, that is, a business school within a renowned technical institute. The School of Management was founded by a distinguished alumnus & a life time Fellow of the Institute, Mr. Vinod Gupta (B. Tech. 1967), the former CEO and Chairman of Info GROUP (previously known as Info USA) whose generous endowment of 2 Million US Dollars was matched by liberal support from the Government of India.
