Advance Management Programmes are offered by ISB in the areas of Public Policy, Manufacturing and Operations, Infrastructure Management, and Healthcare Management breaking away from the traditional management programmes. The duration for the course is 12 months. The AMPs at ISB were started with a vision of creating experts and leaders in the four sectors that have a crucial role in the growth of the Indian economy. ISB brings together professionals from both public and private sector on a single platform facilitating the exchange of knowledge and best practices among professionals from diverse areas.

The year-long programmes are taught via a unique hybrid model involving intensive classroom sessions spread over a year, interspersed with online interaction and group work – first of its kind in India. Participants in these programmes are mid to senior level executives from leading and emerging companies across the country and entrepreneurs from various sectors. The modular residency format facilitates the acquisition of knowledge and skill-sets without requiring students to take a break from their regular jobs.

The four institutes based at the ISB's Mohali campus work closely with the industry, government, and academia in identifying and working on issues in key sectors that will have an impact on policy making in this country.
