The IBS Approach
IBS has a unique and innovative approach to business education, that focuses on providing the right knowledge, imparting the right skills for enduring success in management careers, and shaping the right attitudes.
The right knowledge is clearly a critical success factor in business. The right knowledge implies relevant, contemporary and cutting-edge knowledge, in the theory and practice of a variety of core, functional and integrative subjects. As practice precedes theory in business, equal emphasis is placed on concepts and applications. This blending of ideas and actions is achieved through various pedagogic techniques like lectures, case studies, business games, the summer internship program, the management research project, etc.
What matters most in business is what one can actually do. Doing well implies mastering and applying the skills - professional, personal and human - required for effective decision-making and execution. IBS trains the students in these skills through a series of soft-skills lab sessions scheduled over the duration of the program. In addition, case-based learning at IBS helps students develop good analytical skills.
A critical attribute for success in life is cultivating the right attitudes like positive thinking, risk-taking, opportunity-seeking, adapting to change, and achieving a proper balance between divergent goals of life. IBS helps students develop the right attitudes, and encourages them to grow into balanced and well-rounded individuals capable of taking up leadership positions.

The Program provides a broad perspective of all areas of management. The courses offered in the program are practice oriented with emphasis placed on application of principles, tools and concepts to meet challenges and problems faced in today’s organizations. These courses are carefully designed to impart to students a managerial perspective in formulating and implementing corporate strategy. Students learn to take decisions critically and analytically taking into account the business considerations and ethical implications of these decisions and to deepen the understanding of the key functional areas and strategic dimensions of management, and to encourage future professionals to equip themselves with the latest tools and techniques.
In addition to the core and specialized courses offered in the program, IBS offers Summer Internship Program (SIP) which forms an important component of education at IBS. It is an attempt to bridge the gap between the professional world and academic institutions. At the end of Semester II, students undergo SIP which is for duration of 14 weeks. 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. It is expected that students will study cases, comprehend the business situation, analyze the problems and come up with alternatives/solutions and then discuss the case in class. A good case is a very powerful instrument in evaluating a student as it puts the student into the shoes of the real-world managers who must face the challenge of decision-making.
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
