KNOW ISB The Indian School of Business evolved from the need for a world class business school in Asia. Our founders- some of the best minds from the corporate and academic worlds- visualised the leadership needs of emerging Asian economies. They recognised that the rapidly changing business landscape would require young leaders with an understanding of evolving economies, but also with a global perspective. The ISB is committed to its role in creating such leaders through its innovative programmes, outstanding faculty and thought leadership. Funded entirely by private corporations, foundations and individuals from around the world, who believe in its vision, the ISB was conceived as a not -for-profit organisation. Our Vision Our vision is to be an internationally top-ranked*, research-driven, independent management institution that grooms future leaders for India and the world. Our Mission To create and disseminate research-based knowledge in management that influences scholarship, practice and policy. To develop and enhance business leadership through innovative world class programmes in management. To utilise the knowledge and expertise to engage with business, government and society, and to contribute to the welfare and development of the community at the local, national, and global levels. To have distinguished faculty from India and abroad teach courses and provide a global perspective in Post Graduate and Executive Education programmes. With increased globalisation, the ISB sees three important trends which will influence its direction for research and education in the coming years: Requirement for global competencies in this part of the world Globalisation of Indian corporations Increasing interest in management best practices in emerging markets, including India

With a diverse mix of students from different industries, experiential and holistic learning, international faculty and students, and strong corporate involvement, life at the ISB is a unique experience for students, executives, faculty, staff and their families. And life after the ISB is never the same, a fact our alumni will vouch for. *Ranked No: 20 in the Global Top MBA rankings 2012, Financial Times, London
