ISB – The Asian Ivy

Indian School of Business - Ivy league

India has always been a “land of opportunies”, a market that never ceases to grow. And the growth rate has been exponential.

And as such, education holds the key.

“Asian education has now reached a critical mass trajectory. It is in our interest to give students multiple options. Hence, we got together with the other prominent Asian B-schools to jointly market our programmes. This proves more effective than going it alone” -Deepak Chandra, deputy dean of ISB.

To create a realm of its own, ISB has tied up with the likes of Nanyang Business School, China Europe International Business School and Hong Kong University of Science & Technology thus forming an Ivy League of Asia.

In terms of resources, unprecedented wealth acquired, economic growth, Asia has been at the submmit with China and India alone accounting for 2.3 billion consumers and increasing purchasing power. Recognising this, numerous MNCs, global organizations have made their way into Asia, setting up research labs, manufacturing units making Asia the epicentre of growth. All these factors tip the scale in favour of Asia as the destination of first choice when it comes to management education.

The arguments for Asia are compelling. The reasons to do a graduate business education in Asia even more. This is where you need to be – and a Top Asia Business School should be the choice!

The entities of TABS (Top Asian Business Schools) all rank less than 30 in the Financial Times rankings. At the national level, what it means for ISB is – more international applicants, operational and marketing synergies, greater diversity, higher learning, bigger opportunities. The joint venture will only take the school upwards, in terms of pedagogy and student quality.

It would be interesting to see how this alliance takes on the other Ivy League business schools in future.

It’s not a surprise that in just 16 years of its existence, Indian School of Business has reached a point of excellence in business management education and research, where other schools have taken years to reach.
