Careers Advancement Services

Taking pride in being talent partners of top global companies

ISB has achieved remarkable success in placing its students since its inception. The school pioneered the practice of lateral placements in India, leveraging the unique student profile characterised by a minimum defined work experience.

Consequently, ISB has not only facilitated significant career transitions but also secured prestigious leadership positions for its business graduates. 

The Career Advancement Services (CAS) team at ISB works in collaboration with various stakeholders, such as the students, corporates, and internal groups, to achieve this.

It provides an extensive range of services, encompassing career counselling, corporate networking sessions, and career management, all designed to assist students in making informed decisions about their professional paths. 

Connecting the Best with the Best

ISB’s CAS Team has a unique structure and its strength stems from its professional nature and the skills plus experience of its team members. 

To support our recruiters and students, CAS has created robost processes and policies complemented by a state-of-art-placements portal and customer relationship module built on latest technology.

Through a series of engagements with corporates, students get the opportunity to learn about recruiting companies with national and global presence. Placements commence with pre-placement talks by recruiters with the student body.

Message from the Leadership

Bootstrap Example

Prof Ramabhadran Thirumalai

Deputy Dean, Programmes, ISB

Our PGP continues to be ranked the best in India. We are triple-accredited, which represents a high standard of achievement. Our faculty bring cutting-edge curriculum and learning methods into the classroom. As a result, the students are trained to see the big picture while diving deep into the issues at hand. They have proved their ability to innovate, lead teams across countries and cultures; and are contributing to the success of their respective organisations.


Bootstrap Example

Kiran Neti

Director and HOD, CAS

Our students have a plethora of opportunities, in terms of the diverse kinds of roles, as well as the salaries offered. They were sought after by a wide spectrum of corporates, well-established MNCs and conglomerates, plus unicorns and new-age firms, besides the government and semi-government space. For instance, more than two-thirds of the recent batches could pivot their industry, with several of them accepted in leadership roles.







Professional Clubs and Outside-the-Classroom Learning

Formed by industrial and functional interest areas, and driven by the students, Professional Clubs facilitate enhanced learning opportunities for the cohort.

The Clubs help students stay in touch with the latest developments in industry and learn about or create new best practices during the year. The students gain exposure to cutting-edge trends within the industry and the right tools to harness their potential and excel during placement interviews.

The Learning and Development (L&D) ecosystem at ISB is a blend of in-class and outside-the-class engagements. Under the guidance of a highly accomplished committee that comprises academicians, alumni and industry experts, we have created Leadership Development modules, Industry Deep-Dive sessions, Career Pathways meetings, Resume Reviews and Mock Interview sessions, as well as flagship conferences for students to undergo a holistic development.
