The Indian School of Business evolved from the need for a world class business school in Asia. Our founders - some of the best minds from the corporate and academic worlds - visualised the leadership needs of emerging Asian economies. They recognised that the rapidly changing business landscape would require young leaders with an understanding of evolving economies, but also with a global perspective. The ISB is committed to its role in creating such leaders through its innovative programmes, outstanding faculty and thought leadership. Its vision is to be an internationally top-ranked, research-driven, independent management institution that grooms future leaders for India and the world. Funded entirely by private corporations, foundations and individuals from around the world, who believe in its vision, the ISB was conceived as a not for profit organisation in 2001. In just a few years, the School is increasingly gaining international repute. An indication of the ISB's success is evident from the institution's global ranking of 12 by Financial Times, London. With increased Globalisation, the ISB sees three important trends which will influence its direction for research and education in the coming years: Requirement for global competencies in this part of the world; Globalisation of Indian corporations; Increasing interest in management best practices in emerging markets, including India. The ISB Online Research Paper Series provides access to abstracts and papers written by the ISB's faculty, on a wide range of topics relevant to emerging economies.
