The objective of the institute is to sharpen the managerial and creative talents of our students. We unleash their true potential by conducting their education in an environment with professional values and attitude. The programmes provide the students with the knowledge and analytical tools to make strategic decisions in an increasingly complex corporate environment. The curriculum provides a judicious mix of academics and real-life industry experience in grooming the students to be successful in their professional career. The programme structure blends such conceptual and practical skills in developing competencies in their career. The focus is on:
The teaching methodology has been benchmarked with global practices. Multiple teaching methods such as classroom lectures, case analysis, group projects, business simulation games, assignments & workshops form the core of the learning process.
While classroom learning strengthens conceptual knowledge, practical learning equips students with the aptitude to work effectively. Students are required to take up live projects from industry.
Besides regular lectures and interactive sessions, case studies are used as a powerful tool in the learning process. This gives students the opportunity to study real life scenarios.
Discussing ideas in a group is one of the best ways to solve the problem and find valuable solutions to business issues. It is imperative to provide an open forum for discussion where students feel comfortable sharing their ideas.
ISB&M's learning programme requires students to actively work on various events and life style related programmes. These programmes are entirely managed by students and they learn peer leadership, planning, resource management and team work.
Students are required to take up live projects from industry. They analyze business issues, learn to develop options and in the process they develop action plans, professional attitude, skills and discipline. This is facilitated through groups of students coming together for research, analysis of issues, presentations, corporate visits etc. This equips the students to handle group dynamics and interpersonal relationships effectively.
All student’s activities are conceptualized and coordinated exclusively by the student’s council. Through their exceptional capabilities & leadership skills, they take up responsibilities and execute them.
