Majority of the engineering students aspire for a management degree at some point of their career. Most of the students also dream of undertaking B.Tech from IITs and MBA from IIMs, which is considered to be the most preferred combinations amongst all the stakeholders - students, parents and industry. At the same time, the presence of IIT and IIM as neighboring institutions of national importance is a rare combination. Therefore, it is a dire need to capitalize this opportunity for the larger benefits of the aspiring students, parents, industry, government, society and the nation as a whole. It is also felt that many industries look for candidates having sound knowledge in Engineering and excellent managerial skills i.e. Industry-ready products for their hiring. Besides, exposure to a variety of courses gives students a wider vision on a problem and more tools to solve problems from a very young age.
