Welcome to Shailesh J. Mehta School of Management !

The School was established in 1995 to offer post graduate programme (MBA), Doctoral (Ph.D.) Programme, and Executive Masters Programme (EMBA) for working executives (jointly with Olin Business School of Washington University). We also offer short duration and long duration management development programmes (MDPs) which include company specific training programmes.

The students benefit from the best curriculum which is relevant for the needs of the industry. The faculty are known for their expertise and achievements in research, training, and consultancy. The School also has associate faculty from other academic units of IIT Bombay, and visiting faculty from the industry to bring the practitioner’s perspective. The faculty and students will have access to various macroeconomic, industry, and corporate databases in addition to other e-resources. The institute offers the additional advantage of collaborating with other academic units and access to their resources for interdisciplinary research. The institute computer centre provides access to softwares ( MATLAB, Mathematica, Maple, etc.), High Performance Computing (HPC), VPN, other IT services and facilities.

The Society for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SINE) at IIT Bombay is highly successful in fostering entrepreneurship and promoting start-ups. The business incubator provides the required support for conversion of ideas into entrepreneurial ventures. It has nurtured more than 200 start-ups and 850 entrepreneurs raising more than Rs.5,500 crores in the process. The faculty and students will have the best entrepreneurial eco-system to pursue their goals.

The events organized by our students, among others, include the Annual International Business Festival (Avenues), industry interaction sessions (Diksha), and seminars (Continuum). The students also organize various activities under the aegis of different activity clubs (Opera, Marktrix, Consig, Systematics, Finesse, Humane, E-club, and Spike). The success of our School is reflected in the achievements of its alumni who are occupying leadership positions in the industry and academia.
