The following are some of the initiatives/conclaves taken up by the students at ISB:


Advaita, literally meaning unparalleled, is an umbrella event for all the inter b-school competitions being organized by various Professional Clubs at ISB. The event not only augments learning but also provides an additional avenue for strengthening inter campus collaboration amongst students, as well as collaboration between various clubs.

 Advaita is held as a two-day consortium of competitions and is organized at both the Hyderabad and Mohali campuses concurrently. The Professional Clubs at both campuses work together, under the aegis of SEAL, and the events for a Club are hosted by only one of the two campuses to avoid redundancy. A Lead Coordinator is selected for coordinating with Clubs and organizing a successful management fest.



Artha, ISB’s annual finance conclave, since its inception in 2013, has served as a platform for finance leaders to interact with some of the brightest students in India. This conclave brings together some of the best minds at the forefront of industry, policy and academia through interactive discussions, with the aim of developing perspectives and inspiring the student body.


AIKYA is a unique host family network programme which aims to bond leading families from twin cities (since 2001), Tricity (since 2012) and ISB students. This programme has been in practice since inception of our campuses in Hyderabad and Mohali. The experience for both the families & the student participants have been encouraging. AIKYA is a Sanskrit word, which means 'coming together'. As a part of this programme the host family will be assigned a student group (comprising four/five ISB students). This student group will be ‘hosted’ by the family and will enjoy its guidance & hospitality for an year. Through AIKYA the students interact with their respective families, get a feel of the region’s culture, tradition, business and community.



Held on the August 15 each year to commemorate our Independence Day, Bandhan is an initiative started by PGP students to give back to the community. Accordingly, over 500 students from various low-income neighbourhoods are invited to both the campuses of ISB. These children spend a day filled with fun and activities on the campus, where the entire student body comes together to interact with them and create a memorable experience.

ISB Leadership Summit (ILS)

The ISB Leadership Summit (ILS) is the annual flagship event of ISB’s Graduate Student Association that provides students with the opportunity to interact with eminent business leaders. ILS aims to host some of the boldest, most innovative leadership thoughts from across countries and sectors. It brings together the best minds at the leading-edge of industry, policy and academics through focused and interactive debates.


 The ISB Super League, based on the format of IPL, is a one of a kind of tournament spread across both the campuses of the Indian School of Business. It is a completely student run and operated event spread across 4-5 months where franchises are auctioned for real money while sports enthusiasts from the ISB community participate across 8-10 sports competing for the glory and massive cash prizes. 

 ISL Lead coordinator shall be selected after careful examination of nominations received by the SEAL team. A core committee shall also be formed who will be responsible for end-to-end management of the event. ISL shall be played among 4 franchisee teams in Hyderabad and 3 franchisee teams in Mohali campus. Rules and regulations of the event shall be shared by the ISL Board. Till date many sports celebrities have addressed the students on the importance of games and about their life experiences. SEAL has been inviting Abhinav Bindra, Fauja Singh, Sania Nehwal to name a few. A sports enthusiast is selected as lead coordinator from among the students to lead this sports extravaganza.


Shadow A CEO

Shadow a CEO is a unique program organized by Indian School of Business (ISB) as part of Daan Utsav (earlier known as the Joy of Giving Week) to inculcate the habit of giving among the youth of India and provide them with an opportunity to interact up close with the country’s most successful managerial talent. The program has been a great success since its launch in 2009.  The objective of Shadow a CEO is two-fold:

  • Engage the youth in the act of giving

  • Provide them with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to observe and learn lessons by spending a day with some of the biggest CEOs in India   The students bid for the CEO of their choice in a live auction. The CEO then contributes an equal amount, if not more and the collective corpus goes to a charity of the CEO’s choice.
