BIBS at its core has an illustrious list of academicians who themselves have a treasure trove of knowledge. Alumni from prestigious institutions like IIMs and XLRI etc., they provide the students with a grounded base of Management that makes for a valuable starting point. Active Mentoring by Industry Leaders creates the practical value to management education by involving students in Live Fieldwork and other activities like Market Surveys (through City Scan), Branding (Through Brand Wars) and other activities that makes the students ready for the rigours of the Corporate World. Further, BIBS ensures a very healthy interaction of its students with the corporate world. Through regular classroom sessions as well as the Management Guest Inspire Series, a monthly event that features industry leaders from across management functions as they bring various current management practices to a common platform. BIBS evolved from the need to provide quality business education to satiate the need of a rapidly evolving national and regional economy. Our founder directors — who aimed to create opportunity, value and experience in their chosen fields — envisioned an MBA program which had a practical and industry oriented syllabus. The idea was to create “ready” managers who could be instrumental in the growth of their respective organizations right from day one. Built on a strong bulwark of academic corporate interface, our institute aims at creating young leaders with an understanding of evolving economies, and who can handle local changes from a global perspective.
