The Indian Business School (ISB) has announced the schedule for admission to its 1-year full-time Post-Graduate Program (PGP) in Management with the application deadline for Cycle 1 on September 15, 2018.

The final offer decision for Cycle 1 will be November 2018. Cycle 2 application deadline is on December 15 with final offer decision on February 2019. The acceptance date is 10 days from the date of the offer.

ISB says it aims to develop global leaders focused on emerging economies and their unique business challenges. The program incorporates practical industry applications with a rigorous, cutting-edge, research-based curriculum.

You, as a student, will undergo team-based learning, individual case studies and even be able to decide your own academic gradient, based on work experience, academic background and appetite for a challenge.

Eligibility Criteria
You need to have a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in any discipline, a valid GMAT/GRE score and at least 24 months of full-time work experience by March 31, 2019. Candidates whose language of instruction at the undergraduate study level was not English need to present TOEFL/IELTS/PTE score.

Selection Process
Your academic credentials will be evaluated to assess your ability to cope with the rigour of the program. Past academic performance and the GMAT/GRE exam scores will be taken into consideration along with the 12th standard grades, graduation grades, post graduation and certification scores. However, no “cut off” criteria are applied to either the academic credentials or the GMAT/GRE score.

The second evaluation is on leadership qualities, on the basis of the impact you have made in professional and personal life. This aspect is assessed through the initiatives that the applicant may have taken, the responsibilities handled and the career progression achieved till date. The one professional evaluation (i.e. recommendation) which forms an important part of the application also helps in gauging the leadership potential of the applicant in a professional setting.

The third assessment is of personal attributes. The admission committee looks for versatile and well-rounded individuals who can contribute to the society in positive and meaningful ways. People who can bring different perspectives to the class and appreciate different point of views also fit the bill.

Your extracurricular activities and interests beyond your work life also provide an insight on your personal qualities. The School also encourages applicants from diverse backgrounds to become part of the cohort. Diversity in all form of life, like work experience, educational background, nationality, among others is given due consideration.

Fees & Other Expenses
On accepting the admission offer, you have to pay a non-refundable Admission Fee of Rs 2.95 lakh. The tuition fee is Rs 2,250,000. Campus accommodation (shared) is Rs 277,350 and studio accommodation Rs 400,400. A one-time contribution for use of library comes to Rs 10,000.
