Joint MSc-PhD (Entrance through JAM)
The Institute offers joint MSc-PhD programmes in the following disciplines, entrance to which is through the Joint Admission Test (JAM):
The Master of Business Administration (MBA), the flagship programme of the Vinod Gupta School of Management at the Institute is a full-time four-semester (2-year) residential programme for graduate engineers and Masters' degree holders in science, economics and commerce, who intend to pursue management careers in India and abroad.
The MBA curriculum has evolved to be among the best in the country, combining the traditional strengths of IIT in technical education with modern management philosophy. Teaching techniques include a judicious mix of lectures, case-studies, group projects and workshops. A two-month summer internship in industry exposes students to practical management problems.

The EMBA is a three-year (12-trimester) programme for working executives delivered from the Kolkata and Bhubaneswar campuses of IIT Kharagpur, which leads to the degree of Master of Business Administration from IIT Kharagpur.
The EMBA programme enables working executives to upgrade their managerial knowledge and skill while continuing to be employed. This rigorous, fully classroom-based programme is held during weekends, while the participants get an opportunity to practice the concepts learnt in classrooms at their workplace. Over the last three terms, the participants engage themselves in individual projects where they attend to a real life problem.

Masters Program in Medical Science and Technology (MMST)
The School of Medical Science & Technology at IIT Kharagpur, launched with the objective to provide a platform of interdisciplinary teaching and research in diverse areas of medical science and technology, offers an interdisciplinary three-year Masters Program in Medical Science and Technology (MMST), the first of its kind in the country. Admission to the MMST program is granted to MBBS doctors each year on the basis of the performance in an entrance test conducted all over the country. The MMST programme offered by the School is the only comprehensive physician-scientist training program in India which aims to bridge the gap that has historically separated biological sciences from engineering and physical sciences.
