It ensures an enriching learning experience for the students and a chance for them to interact closely with the distinguished academics and business experts, complementing their rigorous course curriculum. This exercise also helps build and strengthen the relationship between ISB and the world's leading professionals.
AMPI at ISB is the most coveted Infrastructure Management in the country for mid to senior-level professionals. It gets its seal of approval both from the faculty and the students.
AMPI batches are thoughtfully designed to ensure a diverse, balanced student mix to maximize peer learning, exposure and to expand thought horizons. An AMPI batch would comprise students from the civil services, the armed forces, the private sector, entrepreneurs, and NGOs. Close interactions in the class and over group activities encourage the exchange of ideas, thoughts, and perspectives. This has the potential to sow seeds and generate path-breaking ideas and bring fundamental changes in outlook, approach, and vision.
