Offers 10 Full Tuition Fee Waivers to meritorious and deserving students
 
February 22, 2016: The Indian School of Business (ISB) has announced a full tuition fee waiver for 10 meritorious and deserving students from the ASEAN countries for admission into its Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP).
 
In alignment with the move by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Government of India, to promote the country as a preferred destination for management education, the initiative by ISB aims to encourage bright students from the ASEAN region to study in India.
 
Announcing the tuition waiver scheme, Professor Rajendra Srivastava, Dean ISB and the Novartis Professor of Marketing strategy and Innovation said, “ISB is happy to announce this initiative which will not only open up opportunities for young people to study here but will also strengthen the bonds between ASEAN and India. We are pleased to support the Government of India in this effort.
 
ISB believes in a balance between the best of Asian insights with that of the West and between theory and practice for impact through a multi-disciplinary approach in its research and programmes. The rapidly changing business landscape across Asia and the world requires leaders who not only have an understanding of the developing economies but also possess a global perspective. Asia has an excellent talent pool with the potential to contribute to the leadership needs of emerging Asian economies and the world in general.”
 
ISB is committed to groom students from the region into truly global leaders through its innovative programmes, latest management techniques, outstanding faculty, thought leadership and research.  It provides students with a strong exposure to international best practices while giving them valuable insights from the emerging markets.
