As far as the two campus goes, there is not even an iota of difference to things that matter to you as a student.

In terms of facilities, Mohali is a new campus in comparison to Hyderabad one so have better infrastructure. Events are equally distributed for both the campuses. I have heard that student clubs are slightly more active in Mohali (Source: current student at ISB).

Coming to the another main point, Placements, the companies do not get to know from which campus you are. So, its a neutral there.

In my view, it doesnt matter which campus you have been allotted. ISB takes into point all the necessary things like diversity before allotting campus to each one. So, if I were you, will not fret over this issue.

ISB strongly believes in one school two campuses concept. It takes all steps to ensure the student life gets the same experience in both the campuses.

If your concern/ query is regarding placements, ISB has a strict non disclosure policy on home campus. Students are not allowed to disclose their campus details to the recruiters through any means whatsoever.

a cent on mohali: Mohali has new infrastructure. But its greatest strength is the bonding among its students. you get too know each and every one in the campus.

I just read this on ISB's wikipedia page in the accreditation section.

"However, because ISB PGP is not recognized as MBA or Post Graduate Degree/Diploma by AICTE unlike the PGDM offered by the IIMs, authorities outside India do not recognize ISB PGP as an equivalent of MBA and hence do not consider the same as Advanced degree. As an illustration, someone who has a four years bachelor's degree and one year ISB PGP would still be considered a Bachelor's degree holder by US Citizenship and Immigration Services for US Visa and Green Card purposes."

How much of a bearing would this have if I want to pursue opportunities in the US or elsewhere in the future (admitted to co2017-18)

Hi,

The best way would be to seek an answer from ISB directly either through their admin staff or through alumnis (best would be to find alumni based out of US).

My take is that it will not be a major thing given that ISB is accredited by AACSB which is a well known accreditation in world b-schools. However, being said that, your is a very technical point specific to visa issues which I am not in a best position to answer. Any experts here are welcome to answer.

Heya! My background is in social impact/impact investing and I would like to get back to the workplace at the latest. In that regard EU/UK programs (aside from ISB) were a great fit!
