There are no options for internship as this is just a 1 year course. however, there are plenty of job opportunities over here. There are many top consulting companies come here for recruitment.

FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP
6/10
College fee is quite steep. (INR 25l for a year). The scholarship options are available to only a very select few (~20 students out of 800). They are given on the basis of the past academic achievements and any other exceptional spike in the profile.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE
6/10
The international exchange program is a great opportunity to study for 4 months in the best b-schools of the globe. However, getting into a exchange program is based on a lucky draw. However, there are few international students who come over here to study.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY
10/10
Acedmics are pretty hectic but curriculum is designed in a very structured way. It is still tough to believe how so much of learning is happening in such a short span of time (each term is just 1 month long and we are taught 4 subjects)

SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE
10/10
Gender ratio M:W 7:3.  Ranks very very high on diversity -- with people coming in from all over the world and from across industries. We have a spiritual healer, a record label owner, a board member of an angel fund, a guy who owns his own adventure sports company etc. It's very difficult to n fact find 'normal' people here - each one has something awfully unconventional about them.  Alcohol allowed - the best thing about ISB is that the school treats you like adults. No restrictions at all. Parties are the norm every weekend. We work really hard, party a lot harder. ISB is situated in the city - so bars, pubs, restaurants galore!

CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS
10/10
ISB has probably the most active student social life - compared to all other global Bschool programs. It's 4-day week gives students the time to pursue all other interests.  More than 35 social and professional clubs who have P2P sessions, networking sessions every week.

Excellent. On par with global standards, maybe even better.  It's like a 5-star hotel with everything you can imagine in it - grounds for all sports - indoor & outdoor, movie room, yoga room & classes, a jam studio, amphitheatre, salons, an executive bar, swimming pool, pool table, snooker table etc.

10/10
Bank loans available aplenty at nominal rates; ISB has one of the best ROI's in the whole world.  Very less scholarships - most students on campus have loans.

Very limited international exposure, less than 2% of class is of international origin. Large number of Indian Americans & English people.  Every year about 100 people travel abroad for exchange program out of a class of 800 approx., selection purely on basis of bidding points! The strategy you play with matters more than the grade! It's hard core game theory. Several languages spoken on campus; foreign language classes take place every weekend Average cost of the international exchange is 3-6lacs INR.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY
10/10
Excellent courses, diverse set of professors with about 80% faculty from out of India Excellent method of teaching - the case method Very systematic program, managed exceptionally well, tests every 3 weeks, assignments every day Professors are always accessible fror anything!
