The Indian School of Business aims to groom business leaders who can respond effectively to challenging opportunities in a business world that is changing faster than ever before.
The Indian School of Business (ISB) was established in 2001 with an aspiration to put India on the global map of management education. In less than a decade since its inception, the ISB has successfully pioneered several new trends in management education in India, and firmly established itself as a world class management institution. In 2008, the ISB became the youngest institution to be ranked among the Top 20, in the Global B-school Rankings by the Financial Times, London, and since then has been ranked consistently among the top B-schools globally. The ISB today has a strong pool of research-oriented resident faculty and invites high calibre international faculty from reputed B-schools to teach in its Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP), Post Graduate Programme in Management for Senior Executives (PGPMAX), and Executive Education Programmes. In addition to teaching, the visiting faculty also participates in collaborative research with the resident faculty. The school has over 3500 PGP Alumni and 12000 Executive Education Alumni, making an impact on business and society across the world. The ISB is in the process of setting up its second campus in Mohali, Punjab, which will also have specialist Institutes for promoting research and education in areas critical to Indias development. The Mohali campus is now operational and welcomed its pioneer batch in April 2012.
Now in its eleventh year, the ISBs flagship Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP)has expanded to be delivered in two locations. The intake for the current class is for a single programme, across the two campuses. With the addition of the Mohali facility, the class size has increased from 560 to 770. Following ISBs unique portfolio faculty model, top visiting and resident faculty impart cutting-edge management insights and practices at both locations. The two campuses operate as a unified entity, with the same commitment to world-class programme design and delivery, and by effecting a seamless integration through inter-campus exchanges and virtual connectivity. The Mohali campus also houses four institutes focusing on the areas of Public Policy, Healthcare, Manufacturing and Infrastructure Management. Admissions are now open for the Class of 2014.
