Message From The Head - Prof. Arun Kumar G

The Department of Management Studies (DoMS), IIT Madras has established itself as a premier management institute offering M.S. and Ph.D. programmes that nurture and transform the young talent to meet the dynamic demands of the academic and the industry. The outstanding awards and laurels received by our alumni in their varied spheres of work endorse the rich legacy of five decades in enriching management education in India. I take this opportunity to present our Department’s credentials and achievements in terms of its academic programmes, values, culture, student fraternity and strong relationships with the corporate world. Our Department's endeavor is to be globally unique in its pedagogy, insights, creativity and expertise in management thought and practice. Research scholars of DoMS are driven by their passion to excel by challenging new frontiers of knowledge. Besides the accolades and recognitions earned by our students within the first few years of work in the organizations they join, their commitment and dedication to their organizations sustained over subsequent years bear ample testimony to their learning, value-based culture, and experience at DoMS, IIT Madras.

The department presently has the largest number of management research scholars in India. Our research programs attract a large number of applicants, including a high proportion of working professionals. Research scholars’ work is regularly published in reputed international and national journals and is presented at prestigious international and national conferences. In the recent past, research scholars received international awards for their doctoral thesis. The research papers of several research scholars have consistently received ‘best paper’ awards, and are cited frequently in the literature.

We believe in strong ties with the corporate world. The interaction fosters a mutually beneficial relationship for both the industry and the department. It gives me great pleasure to cordially invite you to visit DoMS and experience for yourself the unique and enriching feeling of interacting with my highly accomplished colleagues and with my young, passionate and enthusiastic students who are raring to make meaningful contributions to the corporate world and indeed to the society.
