About ISB

The Indian School of Business (ISB) evolved from the need for a world-class business school in Asia.

The founders, some of the best minds from the corporate and academic worlds, anticipated the leadership needs of the emerging Asian economies. They recognised that the rapidly changing business landscape would require young leaders, who not only understand the developing economies but also present a global perspective.

ISB is committed to creating such leaders through its innovative programmes, outstanding faculty and thought leadership.

Funded entirely by private corporations, foundations, and individuals from around the world who believe in its vision, the ISB is a not-for-profit organisation.

The Indian School of Business has the distinction of accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) as part of a ‘triple crown’, making it the 100th school in the world to have accreditations from the AMBA, the EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

Accreditation from AMBA represents the highest standard of achievement in post-graduate business education. Its rigorous assessment criteria ensure that only the highest-calibre programmes, which demonstrate the best standards in teaching, curriculum, and student interaction, achieve the accreditation.
