The Research and Professional Practice(RPC) of the Department of Management Studies at IIT Delhi has been adjudged as the best in the country, according to a government ranking released recently.

The department was also judged 6th in the all India B School ranking in the Management discipline.

The National Institutional Ranking Framework(NIRF) released by the Ministry of Human Resource Development(MHRD) is based on a very rigorous process of assessment that considers various factors such as Infrastructure, Research, Consultancy, Placements, Student Strength, Student Faculty ratio and diverse facilities provided by the institutes.

This time the ranking was released under five categories -- Overall, Colleges, Universities, Management and Engineering.

"The research output of our department is one of our key strengths . The Consultancy services provided by the department are highly sought after. There are research projects including global ones, going on round the year involving both the students and the faculty. We also offer a plethora of opportunities of networking through industry interactions," Prof M P Gupta, head of the department says.

Elaborating on other key activities of the department, Prof Gupta said that there was a strong focus on providing an international exposure to the students through the Global Field Study Program. "The students get to visit industries and manufacturing plants to gather knowledge about the work culture and operations across the globe. The interdisciplinary learning and research provides a conducive learning to the students which provides us an edge over other B-schools, especially IIMs."

The Director of IIT Delhi has provided full autonomy to the department financially and functionally. The faculty, the quality of education provided and the batch strength are continuously growing as the department focuses on adapting as per the needs of the industry.

The curriculum is reviewed regularly with the help of industry experts, notable alumni and B-school leaders.
