Change is the only constant in today’s market. Economies of the world today face challenges in the short term which makes rethink on existing practices, beliefs & assumptions imperative.

The last decade has been exposed to one such phase where the turmoil in the world of business and finance has made people wake up to the uncertainties and threats. It has been reinforced that for managers and businesses to succeed, in addition to competencies, there is no substitute to honesty, integrity and a strong foundation in core values.

At IBS we mould managers and leaders for society who create, inspire and lead teams to set optimal standards of performance.

We believe that being aggressive and competitive and yet being ethical and value-driven in today’s aggressive markets are not mutually exclusive but in fact highly interdependent. At IBS students are taught to play to win but not at any cost, to be guided by the principles of fair play, rules, conscience &values. Our focus is on quality rather than quantity ensures that we have compact batch sizes. A student teacher ratio of as high as 3:1 ensures a high degree of interaction between the students & the faculty. This helps the students benefit from the rigor of our programme while at the same time be shaped into well rounded personalities.
