If you’ve had any of the above questions, here’s all you need to know before you send your application for PGP in Management at ISB.

The ultimate comparison between ISB Hyderabad and Mohali has been going on since forever. While some say, they follow a “One School, Two Campuses” vision, a good number of people contradict this statement.

Experts at Leverage Edu have been able to help more than 100+ students achieve their ISB dream. All the information that you will read in this article today has been inferred from the experiences of our students which are studying/studied at ISB Mohali & Hyderabad.

Indian School of Business has two campuses, one in Hyderabad and the other in Mohali with 600 and 288 seats respectively. The curriculum runs parallel across both the campuses and undergoes upgradation annually to be at par with the global B-schools. Also, both the campuses have some of the best of professors of the teaching fraternity. However, if any student wishes to switch campus, they can, given they find an elective from the other campus.

Talking more about ISB Hyderabad, the campus is spread over 260 acres of land. It’s a beautiful site with large boulders, open fields, landscaped areas, and lush greenery which is absolutely breathtaking. Also, the campus has all the amenities that one can ask for during the course. The heart of this campus is the Academic Centre, which houses lecture theatres, classrooms, faculty offices, learning Resources centre, and a 500 seat auditorium. Apart from this, it also has lecture theaters, learning resource centre, atrium, student village, and recreation centre.

Whereas, ISB Mohali is spread over 70 acres of land, which is beautifully designed by Perkins Eastman, one of the best designers in New-York. The campus is constructed to meet the LEEDS Gold sustainability criteria with rain water harvesting and many more facilities. It is equipped with lecture theatres, a 500-seater auditorium, HD video conferencing room, digital and online library resources with cashless digital payments, and fully-serviced apartments for students and faculty. The educational institution also houses some great cafeterias and cafes, sport & recreational facilities, and many support services such as banking, communication, convenience, convenience stores, and medical facilities to make your stay at ISB awesome.

To talk about the differences between the two campuses, ISB has no separate parameters basis on which they judge their candidates and allot campus. So ideally, it is very tough to draw a differentiating line between the two campuses.

All the selected candidates are given a rank from 1-888 based on their performance in the admission process. Now these students are divided into groups of seven each, 1-7, 8-14 and so on, and from this group, the first five students are sent to ISB Hyderabad while the remaining two are sent to ISB Mohali. Moreover, a lot of other parameters like average GMAT score, work experience, gender ratio etc are also considered in order to attain a similar crowd quality.

When it comes to placements at ISB, the school ensures that all the on-campus placements are entirely based on student’s merit. For the same, these placements are conducted at one campus and all the students of the other campus fly down for the interviews. They are clearly instructed not to disclose their campus to the recruiters to make sure nothing other than a student’s profile influence the decision making.

By now, you might have already anticipated that ISB follows a much unbiased approach to make sure there are no differences between the two campuses. The professors travel from one campus to the other to maintain same quality of education which is delivered to students. Even the visiting faculty from reputed global B-schools such as MIT, Warton, Kellogs etc remains the same for both the locations, compromising in no way with the quality of education at ISB.

Hundreds of students from Leverage Edu have been to ISB Hyderabad and Mohali for their PGP in Management and have found the learning experience almost identical. So unless you are focusing at either of these cities for reasons other than your education, you have no reason to think upon.
