Information Resources

The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) at the Indian School of Business proactively realises the need for customised information products to cater to the needs of our stakeholders, who being pressed for time are unable to utilise the wealth of resources for their academic and other decision making purposes.

Our flagship info-product “Global InfoWatch” was conceptualised in 2008 with the clear objective of extended value added service providing up-to-date information on B-schools in India and across the globe. Industry trends and market research updates to help students to perform better in their assignments, projects and other academic pursuits are also provided.  The product was launched and effectively promoted in early 2009 after thorough beta testing and necessary customisation based on stakeholders’ feedback. The product is extremely useful for stakeholders in taking informed decisions as it tracks and disseminates data on success parameters such as admissions, b-school profiles, placements, executive education, and intellectual contribution across the other business schools from published literature.

The Placement Guide and Industry Watch under the umbrella of Global InfoWatch enhance the content with specialised updates on recruiters for campus placements, industry updates, and market trends. These products give students the edge during placement interviews as the latest information is accessible on a single platform in a personalised way, i.e., students and other stakeholders have the privilege of setting their preferences and can modify their interests from time to time, dynamically. The other sub-products such as Course Guide, CD-Watch, etc also help the stakeholders in enhancing their performance.

We have extensively involved our stakeholders in creating these products from conceptualisation, design, beta testing, and also in promotional campaigns. These products have been successful primarily as they are not only user centric and directly benefit the target segments, but they are also very user friendly. Such info-products would definitely enhance the productivity of the organisation and the quality of the learning experience for its stakeholders.
