ISB earns Rs. 600 million through executive education programmes

The Indian School of Business (ISB), Hyderabad earned Rs. 60 crore (Rs. 600 million) from executive education programmes during 2011-12. “We are now the largest provider of executive education in India, offering open enrolment programmes as well as customised programmes to suit the specific needs of corporates,’’ Mr Deepak Chandra, Deputy Dean, ISB told Business Line.

During the last year, the premier business school trained over 4,000 senior executives through 125 programmes. Apart from its 50-odd regular faculty members, ISB has empanelled 150 visiting faculty from industry and academic institutions across the globe. The duration of the programmes generally range from three days to about a month depending on the nature of the course.

Apart from corporates, ISB also offers programmes to officials in Government and public sector enterprises and even politicians. A group of legislatures drawn from different State assemblies were coached last year in leadership and other aspects of public policy. "The response for this was very good," Mr Deepak Chandra said.

ISB also went global in executive education by entering into a memorandum of understanding with Karachi-based Institute of Business Admninistration (IBA) to commence programmes from June 2012. "We will also expand our international footprint to Bangladesh, Iran, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, Turkey, Mexico and Nigeria," the Deputy Dean added.
