The research produced by ISB in the marketing area is at par with many well-established old players, highlighting the research productivity of a young business school from India. Last year ISB’s Dean Rajendra Srivastava was selected as AMA fellow. The distinction of “AMA Fellow” is given to members in good standing of the AMA who have made significant contributions to the research, theory, and practice of marketing and/or to the service and activities of the AMA over a prolonged period of time.

ISB has been producing world-class research in the marketing area over the years. ISB was the first B school from India to be ranked among the prestigious UT Dallas Top 100 Business School Research Rankings and still holds the country's top slot.
