“ISB was established with a vision to be a globally top-ranked, research-driven, management institution. After 12 years of the School’s consistent top performance in the FT Global MBA Rankings 2019, we can be proud of our global positioning as an institute of eminence from India. It is very heartening to see three other prominent business schools from India feature in the Top 100. This goes a long way in helping strengthen the Study in India initiative and help promote India as a destination for high-quality management education.” said Dean Rajendra Srivastava.
