ISBS has complete faith in the potential of Indian youth and believes that unleashing such potential, demands that all the students learning to occur within a powerful learning environment which provides active, self-directed acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitudes.
At ISBS our industry-academia interaction brings forth managers of business corporations to extend the knowledge of their challenges, with the future leaders of business. All such efforts are aimed to have an impact commensurate with every student's ambition. The curriculum is ever evolving and has a progressive outlook with an intellectual rigor, where a sound foundation of critical thinking and articulating is laid, in an environment that encourages curiosity and discovery. We enlist the support of a strong team of faculty, who put their best efforts to motivate our students and guide them towards professionalism. ISBS is where it is today, due to the synergy between our organizational vision and culture. We have adopted a holistic approach, integrating physical, emotional and social development as we aim to build an attitude amongst the young aspiring managers, on how they can continually expand their capacity to create the results they truly desire. These values form the basis of our efforts to maintain being a premier management institute and we look forward to sharing this experience with you.
Academic institutions have the potential to generate a wave of positive change, thereby ensuring that individual aspirations flourish along with sustainable growth for business and environment. Such vast and incredible knowledge generation shapes the attitudes and behavior of business leaders through business education, research, training, and other pervasive, but less tangible, activities such as the spread and advocacy of new values and ideas. The roles and responsibilities of business as a global force are becoming more urgent and complex, and concepts related to foresight and agile decision making skills are gaining recognition as essential elements in business management. Indira School of Business Studies (ISBS) recognizes this precept of business leadership and augments its teaching and learning to drive business behavior through academics.
Indira School of Business Studies (PGDM), Pune, was established under the aegis of Shree Chanakya Education Society (SCES).
Shree Chanakya Education Society began as a trust in 1994, under the visionary leadership of Dr. Tarita Shankar, with an explicit vision to provide sustainable impetus to the corporate and entrepreneurial abilities in the youth. Unrelenting initiatives by the management team at Indira led to the creation of multi disciplines such as Management, Information Technology, Pharmacy, Commerce, Science and Engineering. All this growth is enabled and sustained by the expertise and exertions of Prof. Chetan Wakalkar, Group Director, Indira Group of Institutes, whose commitment and concern for students’ development stands unmatched. SCES has grown steadily and today boasts of several Institutes, having more than 12,000 students, from all over India pursuing multi-disciplinary graduate and post-graduate programs. The Institutes managed by SCES have maintained high academic standards and have successfully provided trained manpower to the diverse industry sectors of the country.
Indira School of Business Studies (ISBS) was established as a professional school to meet the growing needs of the business sector with an idea to bridge the gap between the ‘Campus and Corporates’. In a short span of time, the programs of the Institute were approved by AICTE and ISBS established its presence in Pune as a premier business educational institute. The curriculum design, methodology utilized, coupled with technology for teaching keeps the students abreast of the trends in the field of business and assures greater articulation of the same.
ISBS has featured in Top 100 Management Institutes in India in NIRF 2019 Rankings. The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) is approved by the Ministry of Human Resource Development. ISBS believes that the emerging global environment requires professional graduates to be equipped with sufficient knowledge and confidence to face tough and competitive scenarios. The current global economy has created an environment where managers have to face greater situational challenges; predict and handle the impulses of the market and provide better quality products and services.
