Careers Advancement Services 


ISB has had a stellar placement record since its inception. The School initiated the trend of lateral placements in India on strength of its unique student profile – every student coming with a minimum defined work experience. The School has facilitated meaningful careers shifts and secured leadership positions for our business graduates - essentially raising and setting new benchmarks over the years! A Professionally run Career Advancement Services (CAS) team at ISB has powered this ambitious and extraordinary feat.
CAS collaborates with multiple stake holders - Students, Corporates and Groups within ISB to facilitate students to evolve in their careers with introspection and self-discovery. The CAS office offers a wide range of services covering career counseling, corporate connect sessions, and career management to enable students to make the right career choices. We work with student representatives and our clients across multiple sectors to develop effective and efficient recruiting strategies.
