Here comes Indian School of Business (ISB) in limelight because it’s one of the youngest and top business schools and students enrolled here have given their best to elongate their limitations that was set up from the organizations they were working with.

ISB is an institution started in 2001 provides MBA equivalent programs to nurture the students to help them become industry ready in very short period of time.

How Indian School of Business (ISB) is Different

If you’ll search for MBA colleges in India then you’ll see hundreds of thousands of results at Google and for your kind information I would like to tell you that “if any institute comes at number one in Google search results that never means you should join that institute assuming that is the best in category”.

Notable Difference at ISB –

  • Selection based on GMAT rankings.
  • Average course duration is 12 months and that’s why accrediated by AACSB and not by AICTE because AICTE do not approves one year progammes.
  • Believes in quality education and that’s why conducting only from 2 campuses that is situated in Hyderabad and Mohali and there they also have limited seats for 847 students.
  • It is founded to create and disseminate research based knowldge in management that influences scholarship, practice and policy.
  • ISB works to utilise the knowledge and expertise to help the students engage with the businesses, government and society for further development at internation level among the global human societies.

ISB promises to deliver quality information for it’s students who comes to serve as executive in MNC’s or into their own startup ventures or the traditional businesses where their parents were doing well and now needs the new age management head.

Awesome courses offered by any university would never work and help you out in your career until and unless you gets eligible faculty to teach you and that’s why it’s really a necessity to know that who are there as the permanent faulty in an institution.

As per my expectations, stay for the executives and business owner would be comfortable and compact with five star housekeeping services.

At both the campuses you could live in a shared accommodation either in an individual flat with your family, ISB provides excellent cafeteria but most of the students prefer to prepare their own meal.

Indian School of Business also facilitates the students with Yoga center, book store, CD/DVD store, saloon, pharmacies, gym, bar, music station etc.

  1. ISB is not only a top ranked institute in India but also one of the best MBA colleges worldwide. According to the Financial Times Global MBA Ranking 2013, ISB is the only Indian B-school after IIM, Ahmedabad to feature in the top 100 list. It sits pretty in 34th spot with a weighted annual salary of $ 123,470, which is higher than some of the other schools preceding it. So it’s not surprising to see candidates flocking to this relatively new (12-year old) college for reserving their seats which has created a niche category amidst MBA candidates. Along with the IIMs, ISB should also be on every student’s list desirous of the best in management education.
