INDIAN  INSTITUTE  OF  TECHNOLOGY,  KHARAGPUR  http://www.som.iitkgp.ernet.in/ 

IIT Kharagpur was the first of the IITs and remains the largest, best and most diversified.The Institute has come a long way since its inception in 1951 to its present position of preeminence with 18 academic departments, 8 multidisciplinary centres, 4 schools and sophisticated central facilities.  Currently there are about 460 faculty members, 1400 employees and 3500 students on campus.


The Vinod Gupta School of Management at IIT Kharagpur was established in 1993, and was the first management school to be set up within the IIT system. It was founded by a distinguished alumnus of the Institute, Mr. Vinod Gupta, whose generous endowment was matched by liberal support from the Government of  India. It was felt that IIT Kharagpur could play a pioneering role in creating management schools within the IIT system and offer unique programmes that would develop managers who would be able to understand and appreciate both the critical technology related issues and their managerial implications. This original and pioneering concept has now been vindicated by the setting up of management schools/ departments in all IITs except one.
