Vinod Gupta School of Management (VGSoM) was set up as the first school of management within the IIT system in IIT Kharagpur campus. It was established with an objective to develop managers with a strong technical background who will be leading tomorrow's corporate behemoths with managerial skills ,suiting to the Indian corporate environment and ethos.It offers part-time and full-time, residential and exceutive MBA ,Post Graduate Diploma in Management programs for regular students and working professionals, along with Managerial Development Programs (MDP's) and Ph.D programs for its students.
Their selection criteria includes score in the standardised national written examination accepted by the B-school (CAT,GMAT), candidate academic percentage, overall profile of the candidate, relevant work experience in months and quality of work experience. Some B-school checks all the cited criteria while others may consider some of these parameters while giving a call. The IIT Kharagpur cut-off figures are in a median range and we always suggest our students to score maximum marks in the written examination as there are other criteria as well on the basis of which final interview call is generated.The actual cutoff figures were quite close to our expected cutoff figures , pegged at 95 percentile in Common Admission Test (CAT).
