Abstract—There has been a lot of innovation right from the days of the Stone era, and after passing through the Industrial revolution, we are now in the midst of the Digital world. In a digitally-wired world, innovation in higher education is no exception. Managing management education using a digital infrastructure is a common phenomenon in this digital world. Managing management education can be classified into two main areas, namely managing knowledge and managing information. Digital infrastructure provides immense opportunities to broaden the knowledge horizon of those who have a flair for learning and teaching. Similarly, digital infrastructure facilitates ease of information management. Both knowledge and information management has enhanced flexibility when managed through a digital infrastructure. These can be managed efficiently irrespective of the time-zone or geographical space. This paper deals with the need for digital infrastructure in an institutional scenario. It also presents a framework for implementing such digital infrastructure in institutions providing management education. A survey has been done to depict the extent to which digital infrastructure is being utilized in some of the leading B-Schools.
