Dean's Message

Welcome to the College of Management, SRM IST- a dream destination to pursue your management education. The College of Management is a constituent of SRM IST and currently offers undergraduate, post graduate and doctoral programs in Management.

The quantum of changes our lifestyle has undergone in the recent past has been phenomenal. The global pandemic has left most sectors of the industry with challenges, the like of which has never been witnessed. The educational sector has been no different. The learning of the students across the globe has been hampered in a big way. The pro-active response of the educational institutions to meet these challenges has been the key to their success and the College of Management, SRM IST, has moved to the online mode of pedagogy at a much earlier stage and at a rapid pace, ensuring academic gap is minimized. It is not only that the teaching activities have gone online but also enabled practical learning by way of internships and hands-on projects.

To keep pace with the dynamic demands of the industry, the College of Management periodically updates its curricula and introduces new and innovative programs in Management such as Business Analytics, Artificial Intelligence & Data Science, Banking and Financial services and Digital Marketing.  The diversity of the students from India and abroad provide ample opportunity for cross-cultural learning to gain a holistic approach.

An excellent Industry Institute Interaction (III) makes the learning for the students go beyond the class rooms and experience the nuances of the corporate environment. Annual events like Bazaar, WORKTOP (an International Business plan competition) also help students to nurture their entrepreneurial instincts and improve their soft-skills. Some of the participants in such events have also grown to become full- fledged entrepreneurs, thanks to the environment provided during their study in the college.

The Research wing of the College of Management is committed to enabling the research community in publishing their research work in journals of international repute. Till date, it has produced 93 doctorates of whom nearly 50 percent are from the industry, thus strengthening the bond between the industry and the institute. Currently another 160+ candidates are pursuing their doctoral research in the College of Management.

The Fintech Lab is another feather in the cap of the College of Management to enhance the students to pursue their dreams in the domain of Finance coupled with technology.  Availability of high end softwares like Thomson Reuters Eikon, CRISIL Research Database, Spider Software and Traders Cockpit Software make the learning truly engaging. Even during the pandemic situation, remote access of CRISIL Research Database was provided to faculty members, scholars and students, to continue to benefit from this facility.

A dedicated Centre for Social Entrepreneurship was recently established to serve the needs of the students to undergo experiential learning and also to the help the deserving sections of the society.

Wishing you the very best in all your endeavours!
