The Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) is one of the Premium technical institutes of the country. The IITs have proved themselves as one of the best in the business education by providing the students with the same quality education as they are reputed for in their traditional technical genre. It has been justified in the NIRF Ranking 2018, where the IITs have been placed in the Top 10 Management Colleges. Here we have provided everything which you should know for admission in IITs from courses offered, fee structure, placement, campus, etc.

Why Choose IITs Over IIMs?

One question which came to many students is how a technology institute better than Management institution? The answer is that IITs have seen some developments in the past decades and the courses at IITs their courses are comparatively young as compared to established B-schools like the IIMs. For instance, DMS, IIT Delhi offers subjects like management in telecommunication systems. This is one of those subjects which you will not find in the curriculum of IIms. There are currently 23 IITs, out of which 07 of them offers admission in Management programmed including IIT (ISM) Dhanbad.

Another part where IITs score points are in the fee structure. Admission through CAT in the IIM all sounds nice but the hefty fee is what shatters a lot of hope. The fee for MBA in IITs ranges from Rs. 2-8 lakh in comparison to the hefty fees of IIMs which can be up to Rs. 20 lakh.

The next part, which most of the students want to know about is the Placement. As for placements and RoI, many companies that offer the most attractive pay have opened their recruiting efforts for the MBA graduates of India’s elite IITs.
