About ISB

The Indian School of Business (ISB) evolved from a need for a world-class business school in Asia. The founders, some of the best minds from the corporate and academic worlds, foresaw the leadership needs of emerging economies, particularly the need for young leaders with a global perspective. ISB is committed to creating such leaders.

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

It has the distinction of carrying a ‘triple crown’ — accreditations from the AMBA, the EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

Our Vision

ISB's vision is to be an internationally top-ranked, research-driven, independent management institution that grooms future leaders for India and the world.

To utilise knowledge and expertise to engage with business, government, and society, and to contribute to the welfare and development of the community at all levels

Business Leadership

The leadership at ISB is insightful, innovative, and pragmatic. The leaders help the school constantly reinvent itself, and set new global benchmarks.
