The Department of Management Studies is a result of the revolutionary process of growth of an idea floated in 1963. What was then a seed, gradually came to life and in 1974 IIT Delhi set up an internal committee to scrutinize the functioning of the management area in the institute. In 1975, an expert committee was set up to formally examine the possibility of launching this area in a more sustained fashion. The result was an M.Tech programme in "Management Systems" in the School for System Studies (subsequently renamed School for Systems and Management Studies). The year 1978 saw the setting up of the Management Core Group and the core inputs to a full-time Management Education at IIT(D) were reconfirmed by an Advisory Committee constituted by the representatives of the Academia and the industry. The School for Systems and Management Studies became the Centre for Systems and Management Studies. This was subsequently renamed as the Centre for Management Studies.

In 1993 the Department was brought into existence by amendment to IIT(D) statutes. Clearly, the Department responds to a felt need of the Indian Industry and derives satisfaction from its heavy field orientation in all its curriculum activity. In response to the feedback from the students, alumni and industry, the Department of Management Studies launched MBA programmes in 1997.

The Department currently runs three MBA programs: a two-year full-time MBA programme, a two-year full-time MBA programme with focus on ‘Telecommunication Systems Management’ under the aegis of Bharti School of Telecom Technology and Management and a three-year Executive MBA programme with focus on ‘Technology Management’. Department offers functional area specialization in Finance, Marketing, Information Systems, Strategy, Organisation Management, Human Resource etc. The students in two-year full time MBA programme are admitted through a rigorous screening process of CAT (Common Admissions Test)*, Group discussion and Personal interview.

Department of Management Studies (DMS) has heavy research orientation as its forte, which is further used extensively for designing courses to respond to the current industry issues. The course content is very contemporary and has involved various stakeholders including industry experts, CEOs and our alumni. DMS faculty who have served on various UN related bodies and international professional association are widely acclaimed internationally for their contributions in knowledge generation and research publications. Stanford has ranked DMS 2nd for its research output among IIMs and IITs. The faculty members are sought after nationally and internationally for consulting activities and research projects and has been widely acclaimed for their contributions. Till date in more than three decades of existence, over 80 PhDs have been groomed by Department. The faculty has contributed at the highest policy level committees of Government of India (GoI), served on various boards of corporate entities, as Chairman ‘All India Board of Management Education’ of AICTE and contributed to the establishment of 5th Indian Institute of Management (IIM) at Kozhikode; and 7th Indian Institute of Management at Shillong. The Department faculty has published over 70 books and over 1000 papers in various ‘A’ category journals and conference volumes. DMS has a world class IT infrastructure with a very high faculty to student ratio. DMS has a rich software repository that facilitates computer aided instructions and enables hands on experience on leading business enterprises. The Global Field Study is an unique initiative which provides the students of DMS an international exposure through their visits to various other countries (Germany and Singapore in 2015).
