The Indian School of Business (ISB) campus in Mohali, Punjab has been set up under the leadership of the Government of Punjab and the generous support of Analjit Singh, Atul Punj, Pawan and Sunil Munjal, and Rakesh Bharti Mittal.
Spread across 70 acres, the ISB-Mohali campus in the Knowledge City is equipped with learning facilities such as lecture theatres, a 500-seater auditorium, student and faculty housing, and a host of recreational facilities.
The master plan of the campus and the architectural design of the individual buildings combine the principles of traditional Indian design with contemporary campus standards, reflecting ISB’s character of being uniquely Indian and, at the same time, a global institution. The buildings adhere to the latest international building code and educational-facility-operating standards. The campus is designed to meet LEED Gold sustainability criteria, with energy-efficient mechanical and electrical fixtures, rain water harvesting, maximised day lighting and passive environmental controls. The campus has been designed by leading international architects, Perkins Eastman, New York, in partnership with RSP, Bangalore, and is being project-managed by Jones Lang Lasalle Meghraj.
