“This is a school that commits itself to real knowledge. I’m proud of our faculty and the way that they have built ideas that are valuable now and stand the test of time.”

Indian School of Business

The partner program between the Indian School of Business and MIT Sloan focuses on developing leadership talent for India’s infrastructure and manufacturing industries. Program activities include co-designing course curricula and action learning projects for two of ISB’s institutes: the Munjal Global Manufacturing Institute and the Punj Lloyd Institute of Physical Infrastructure Management. In turn, ISB provides opportunities for MIT Sloan faculty and students to develop working relationships in India and firsthand insight into the country’s rapidly growing economy.

The partnership engages both faculty from MIT Sloan and the MIT School of Engineering, enhancing opportunities for cross-institute collaboration and innovation. MIT and ISB will strengthen this relationship by pursuing joint research projects and student and faculty exchange programs.

“I need to prepare my syllabus for the course I will teach so I am paying attention to course management. My co-advisor, Erik Brynjolffsson, is helping me to benefit from his course as much as possible."
