Unique Associations

The Indian School of Business (ISB) has academic alliances with the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, London Business School (LBS) and MIT Sloan School of Management and The Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy, Tufts University.

This association brings in the best of global management practices and thinking into the ISB curriculum. ISB signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Kellogg School of Management and the Wharton School in November 1997, which provides for sharing of expertise and academic resources. Kellogg and Wharton have infused the best and latest in global management practices and thinking into ISB's academic purview by helping to design the curriculum and develop the course material. Most importantly, faculty and researchers from these institutions regularly teach at the ISB and also participate in research at the School.

In November 2000, the ISB also tied up with the London Business School (LBS), one of Europe’s top business schools. LBS collaborates closely for sharing faculty and research ideas, and has contributed to developing ISB's Executive Education Programmes.

In April 2010, ISB signed a MoU with the MIT Sloan School of Management, to develop two new institutes at ISB’s upcoming campus at Mohali – The BML Munjal Institute for Manufacturing Excellence and Innovation, and The Punj Lloyd Institute for Physical Infrastructure.  

In December 2010, ISB signed a MoU with the Fletcher School, Tufts University for the Bharti Institute of Public Policy. The collaboration between the two schools is envisaged to cover faculty exchange opportunities, curriculum development, research and teaching support, research projects, joint executive education programmes, workshops and conferences.

In April 2011, ISB signed a MoU with The Wharton School to develop the Max Institute of Healthcare Management, thus adding a new dimension to the relationship that was formed in 1997.
