Dean Madan’s Inaugural Address

Message from the ISB Dean

Key Partnerships

ISB has academic alliances with some of the top B-schools in the world. These include the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, London Business School (LBS), and The Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy at Tufts University.

Cutting-Edge Research

The school's focus is to produce high-quality research, which is not just rigorous but contemporary too. To achieve that, faculty drawn from international institutions collaborate with top minds in the industry and government, developing cutting-edge thought leadership. While being ranked the overall best B-school in India for PGP, the school is rated #1 in the country for research in particular.

Focused Programmes

ISB offers programmes for aspirants with different levels of experience, who come from diverse career paths. These programmes include a one-year PGP for young executives, part-time PGPs for more experienced professionals, and advanced programmes specific to functions, besides a programme in family business. There are also doctoral-equivalent and post-doctoral research programmes. ISB Executive Education and ISB Online run programmes for transformational learning journeys for professionals across levels.

Distinguished Faculty

Scholars and experts from across the world teach at ISB. They are at the forefront of research and provide cutting-edge thought leadership. Students are an active part of the research activities, making ISB a hub of knowledge creation.

India Advantage

Diversity defines India, and that gives it a unique position in the world as a learning centre. The country has an abundance of human capital and a progressive environment, but also many challenges that need constant attention. That makes it a platform where nuance from the ground can meet a global perspective.

World-Class Infrastructure

ISB has two campuses, one in Hyderabad and the other in Mohali. Located in tranquil settings, both campuses provide an environment that is conducive to learning. 

Global Exposure

ISB's curriculum has been crafted to ensure international exposure for students. The faculty come with experience from some of the leading international business schools or corporations. Diversity in the classroom translates into a constructive jostling of ideas. Global exchanges and collaborations ensure students are exposed to newer perspectives constantly.
