About Us

The Retail Club is a pioneering initiative instituted in 2007 by the Indian Business School (ISB) students to provide opportunities for students to interact with the industry and to create an understanding of the management skills required in this exciting sector. Retail is one of the fastest growing industries, with organised retail expected to grow at an annual rate of 35%. To sustain this high growth, the industry will need access to top quality management talent. Premier business schools like ISB can play a pivotal role in providing such talent to the industry. In the past, the retail club has organised various events and workshops that have allowed students to network with the industry. Esteemed panelists such as Kishore Biyani (MD,Future Group), Siva Kumar (Chief Executive, ITC Ltd –Agri Business), AK Singhal (Chairman, KSA Technopack) etc, for speaker sessions and workshops.
