About The Indian School of Business

The Indian School of Business (ISB) is a global Business school, offering world-class management education across its two campuses – Hyderabad and Mohali. The School has grown at a rapid pace over the sixteen years since its inception, and already has several notable accomplishments to its credit. It is the youngest school ever to consistently rank among the top global MBA programmes, one among the select 100 global B-schools to have AACSB and EQUIS accreditation, one of the largest providers of Executive Education in Asia, and the most research-productive Indian management institution. A vibrant pool of research-oriented resident faculty, strong backing by its associate schools – Kellogg School of Management, Wharton School, London Business School, MIT Sloan School of Management and Fletcher School, and the backing of an influential Board, has helped ISB fast emerge as a premier global Business school in the region.


The ISB brand is now represented by a network of 8500+ accomplished Post Graduate Programme (PGP) and Associate alumni, and more than 35,000 from the Executive Education Programmes, working in leading companies, government and non-profits, spread across 40-plus countries, and over 400 alumni running their own ventures.


Applied Statistics and Computing (ASC) Lab

The Applied Statistics and Computing Lab at ISB was set up in 2010 to advise the School’s faculty on statistical methodology and analysis. Its flagship Certificate Programme in Business Analytics (CBA) aims to equip professionals with the skills of a Data Scientist, beginning with statistical analysis, and going up to machine learning and application of analytics in business. The Lab also conducts workshops on recent research in the field, offers ISB doctoral students courses on statistical and econometric methods, and opportunities for research assistants to practice their abilities. The Lab is also currently working on a series of online tutorials on statistical methods.

Programmes at ISB

In addition to its flagship Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP), the School has also introduced several new programmes over the years in its PGP suite of programmes: PGPMAX, a global Executive MBA-equivalent programme for senior industry executives; PGPpro, a part-time Executive MBA-equivalent programme for working executives; and PGPMFAB, a programme for the scions of family businesses. The Fellow Programme in Management is a PhD-equivalent programme that grooms young researchers for management academia. The well-accepted Advanced Management Programme suite of programmes for mid-career professionals in Public Policy, Manufacturing and Operations, Infrastructure, and Healthcare, and the Certificate Programme in Business Analytics, are designed to build leaders within specific industries and sectors.
