Question: Please throw some light on ISBR Business School’s mission and legacy.
Answer: ISBR started 30 years ago as a management institute; thereafter we got the AICTE approval. The primary purpose for creating ISBR is creating knowledge and disseminating the information and knowledge to the students so that they become the global managers. We started with that mission and have been successful. When we say knowledge creation, we give a lot of importance to research.

Question: What are the programmes and specialization offered?
Answer: Students can choose from the wide range of courses at ISBR Business School. We have a wide range of specializations in almost all the areas. Marketing, Finance, HR are some examples. We also have analytics which is an emerging area. Besides this, we have a unique thing about two PGDM- one is the Global Immersion programme where we signed an MOU with different universities in Singapore and Malaysia. The second PGDM programme is the one semester abroad programme.

Question: What about admissions and cutoff for ISBR Business School?
Answer: We accept the scores of CAT, XAT, MAT but if any student has not taken any test among these then he/she can appear for our own entrance test but we emphasize on the scores of these exams. This is the primary criteria for admissions followed by the GDPI process. Students getting 80 percentile or above can safely secure admissions at ISBR. We do not look for the toppers;rather we look for the communication, business awareness skills, and attitude of the student.
