From the horse's mouth..


This review is for ISB

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2015

Experience during the program

The biggest Highlight of the school is the amazing faculty and its facilities. The one year curriculum is ideally suited for a person not looking to spend too much time out of industry for management studies. Having said that there is absolutely nothing the school lacks in terms of course design vis-a-vis other prestigious two year programs. No doubts all these traits make it an unparalleled institution in India.
The school is ideally suited for people with 3-5 years of work- ex and those looking to work further in India. I Joined the school with a 6+ years of experience with goal to make a lateral progression within finance domain and was able to achieve it.

Avg GMAT score for intake is 710. Decent GMAT and good professional background see one through the selection process.

About professors, classes and curriculum

The school ensures that there is no dearth of quality faculty by inviting world class professors from across the globe to both the campuses. The curriculum is also quite up to date with frequent revisions. Amazingly, student body has a big say in setting up the course structure and a democratic structure ensure that suggestions are heard and acted upon. Both the campuses enjoy equally vibrant student community with similar facilities and same course structure.

About job placement process

The school has a lot to offer in terms of course and career choices. You should be fully aware of the career path you want to pursue post the course and work accordingly. The biggest recruiters are consulting, tech and marketing but Finance, esp I-banking & Capital Markets is challenge.
