It gives me immense joy to welcome you to the School of Management and Entrepreneurship (SME), the new academic unit in the IIT Jodhpur system. SME aims to combine technology and management to prepare students to explore a future of possibilities. SME is set to play a crucial role in delivering cutting edge management and entrepreneurial education to existing and future professionals. With its future centric curriculum, exceptional faculty, and strong international footprint, SME has the right ingredients to achieve a leadership position among its peers with time to come.
SME has been conceptualized with a broader vision to evolve not only as a center of excellence for management training and business education but also contribute to the overall academic vibrance of IIT Jodhpur. To this end, SME will also be offering educational programs in Management and Entrepreneurship and equip the students from other academic units on these critical skills that could better prepare them for their specialized careers and engage in job creation.
Besides, SME is also poised to contribute to the practice outreach of IIT Jodhpur by being an innovation hub. SME will contribute to the community through cutting edge training and development programs to enable seasoned professionals across sectors to hone their managerial skills and business acumen.
