What makes us different?

Summer Internship Program (SIP)

SIP is a vehicle for introducing students to real-life situation, which cannot be simulated in the classroom and requires the students to undergo the rigor of professional environment both in form and substance. It exposes them to technical skills and helps them to acquire social skills by drawing them onto contact with real professionals.


Case teaching methodology occupies a prominent role at IBS teaching. The Case Method assists students in identifying typical problems in specific functional areas of management. Thus the Program offered at IBS is highly rigorous, completely transforming the student to be ready to meet the challenges of today’s corporate world

Industry Initiatives

IBS consciously encourages industry interaction with a wide cross section of professionals in the industry. Summer Projects, industry interaction programs, guest lectures, seminars etc., organized in association with the industry offer students an opportunity to exhibit their skills and abilities to leading recruiters.
