Career Services

Does the programme provide campus placement services?

No, the programme does not provide a campus placement service.

Why is campus placement not provided?

Campus placement is not provided for two reasons: 

  • AMPI is a part-time executive program
  • Since participants will have company support, at least by way of time off from work to attend the programme and therefore respecting the employer’s support, ISB does not feel it is appropriate to offer placement services.
  • Secondly, participants would be having a good amount of work experience and would have targeted positions in companies to work which are generally headhunted
