Kharagpur, India (PRWEB) January 31, 2013

Students from Vinod Gupta School of Management have just begun a social responsibility program, which primarily focuses on the social inclusion of underprivileged kids in economically weaker sections of the society in and around Kharagpur. Conceived in 2007 by students of the class of 2009, Shraddha has been working in collaboration with the Disha Seema Centre, a non-profit organization, which runs the residential school inside the IIT campus for kids from the nearby localities.

Shraddha also did its bit for bringing JOYFEST (The joy of giving week celebrations organized by JAM magazine) to Kharagpur.

The school was founded by Vinod Gupta through The Vinod Gupta Charitable Foundation in 1993 to develop upcoming management professionals and future CEOs who will lead technology-driven and knowledge-based industries. He has donated over $6 million to set up this school.

The school is the foremost B-School in the IIT system and offers both a Masters of Business Administration (MBA), and a Post- Graduate Diploma in Business Management (PGDBM). The two-year MBA program spans four semesters of full-time residency including a six-month internship. The PGDBM program targets working executives in a flexible, non-residential program. Both promote rigorous study through a state-of-the-art infrastructure.

With this vision, the genesis of Shraddha took place.
