Dean/Head

I extend to you a very warm welcome to our esteemed School of Management and Entrepreneurship (SME). Though it is a young Business School, SME is growing from strength to strength as a forerunner in technology-based management education and entrepreneurship. At SME, we are committed to create value by spawning a new generation of managers, entrepreneurs, and business leaders prepared with techno-managerial expertise for future paradigms and decision-making embedded with socially sensitive human values.

Poised to meet the needs of the evolving world scenario, SME offers three major management programs: (a). Master of Business Administration (b). Master of Business Administration-Technology (c). MBA in Fintech and Cybersecurity

SME actively pursues international collaboration. Our current international partners include the School of Business, State University of New York (SUNY), Albany; Brandeis International Business School, Brandeis University, Boston; and the School of Business, George Washington University, Washington. Through these international linkages, SME offers 1+1-degree programs in which the students get the advantage of spending their first year at IIT Jodhpur campus, and their final year at an international campus of a leading business school of their choice. The opportunity for internship and placement at our partner institutes and schools are also open for the students. SME regularly invites industry captains for talks and interactions with the students and organizes annual B-School mega-events such as the 'Sandstone' summit.

In addition, SME is an active contributor to the academic curriculum at IIT Jodhpur. It offers a Minor in Management and a Minor in Entrepreneurship at the B Tech level, which have turned out to be popular choices among undergraduate students across the disciplines at IIT Jodhpur. SME has a vibrant Ph.D. Program with scholars engaged in high-quality research in the business and management domain keeping business relevance and academic rigor and standards in balance. SME also is proud to host a Center of Excellence in Intellectual Property (IP) under the stewardship of an eminent and renowned IP legal expert and a chair Professor in IP.

The Core faculty of SME has a solid academic background and established research acumen to cater to the various functional domains of business management and entrepreneurship. They are supplemented and complemented by the support of Adjunct Professors, Visiting faculty, and Scholars in Residence. The Advisory Committee of SME is composed of Academic stalwarts and industry experts. Together, we at SME try to prepare the students for a lifetime of creating value in their business careers and pursuits.

As the new head of SME, I invite you to join our adventure, as a student or alumni, as a faculty, or associate, as a partner or a collaborator, as a friend or a well-wisher, or as a business leader or a philanthropist, as we fulfill our commitment to the nation and the society of the future.
