The Indian School of Business is a global business school offering business-management courses on two campuses – in both Hyderabad and Mohali, part of their “One-School, Two Campuses” philosophy. ISB offers students a degree that is designed to enhance business management skills through a curriculum taught by some of the worlds’ best faculty.

The goals of the program are to teach students to work effectively in teams, adopt critical and integrative thinking skills, build an awareness of global issues, learn how to effectively communicate, and to create ethically responsible business managers.

Over the last twenty years, the school has continued to grow dramatically. The one-year program accepts those with anywhere from 2-20 years of professional experience. This years’ class has 929 students – the largest class size for any MBA or equivalent program in India, and the class received 2,066 job offers from 270 different companies – the highest number of offers the program has ever seen. There were 39% of women students in the class, and 41% of offers were made to them specifically.

Why choose ISB? Many reasons, including access to global partner schools such as Wharton and Kellogg, as well as Fletchers School at Tuft’s University. ISB also has triple crown accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) and the Association of MBAs (AMBA), making it the youngest school to earn triple accreditation. If not already convinced, another reason to attend would be their major focus on emerging economies, with insight into the Indian business environment. ISB also offers world class campuses and research environments equipped to accommodate all of their passionate and driven students.

Students can customize their degree through a wide range of specializations and electives such as Corporate Development: Mergers and Acquisitions, Change Management, Software Project Management, Consumer Behavior, Digital Transformation and Innovation in the Manufacturing Ecosystem, Artificial Intelligence for Business and Society, and many more.

“Established conglomerates and startups alike, have made ISB their campus of choice when scouting for high-quality talent. The PGP at ISB has become eponymous with diversity. One of the many reasons recruiters like our students is their ability to get things done. It is gratifying to witness again the faith reposed upon by our partners in choosing ISB as their campus of choice.”
