Business schools of three IITs - Kharagpur, and Roorkee - have featured in the top 10 list of NIRF Management ranking this year.

The ranking was made from a total number of 542 business schools who submitted data for the rank, an IIT-Kharagpur release said today.

The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) was approved by the MHRD.

Kharagpur's Vinod Gupta School of Management (VGSoM) was ranked seventh, while the management schools of and Roorkee were ranked sixth and eight.

The key strength of these three B-schools has turned out to be research and professional practice for which they are the top-ranking B-schools in India, the release said.

While 'teaching and learning' remained the primary aspect of every B-school, research and research output such as research publications, intellectual property, consulting services, development programmes, opened up new paradigms of management initiatives.

Acting Dean of Vinod Gupta School of Management (VGSoM), IIT-KGP, Prof Prabina Rajib said, "Faculty must undertake innovative and deep-learning R&D projects to add new dimensions to classroom teaching".

VGSoM was modelled on similar lines of the Sloan School of Management at MIT, while aligning itself to the research focus of its mother institution IIT-KGP.

IIT-KGP was the first IIT and among the foremost engineering colleges to set up a business school. VGSoM was set up in 1993.
