Chairperson’s Message

Dear Students

Pursuit of Management Education at Indira Group of Institutes has been an inspiring journey. With over two decades of existence, and shortly closing on twenty five years of celebrating education, Indira strongly believes in the power of education to transform the youth. The philosophy, governance and values of business are witnessing a sea change and plenty of its repercussions are already being witnessed across the globe. Indira embraces these changes and epitomizes matching innovation in curriculum. Such transformational efforts lead our aspiring managers to become professionals who develop capabilities to lead in dynamic environment.

Quality being the bottom line for every industry, Indira has never lost sight of the fact that for India to forge ahead in its drive towards economic supremacy in the world, it is the quality of our people who drive it that matters most.  And quality, as the cliché goes, is never an accident but an article of faith, and the entire faculty team at Indira embodies such dedication to quality. The Indira Group has proven itself on this count and has no intention of resting on its laurels.

Indira offers holistic and transformative learning experience, designed and delivered by experts from industry and academia. While the curriculum keeps the programs contextually abreast, innovative pedagogies inspire application oriented learning.

 Indira strives to create good human beings and not just professionals. With the confidence that our intentions have matched our efforts, I wish you the very best in the future.

Chairperson – Indira Group of Institutes, Pune.

Group Director’s Message


Dear Aspiring Leaders,

These are exciting times for us as a nation, for we march confidently ahead to make an impact on the world as a global leader. In order to achieve this, our government has taken evolutionary reforms in the form of demonetization, recapitalization of public sector banks and the implementation of the much awaited GST bill. This along with better governance and a more transparent decision making system is making India an attractive destination for many global MNC s. The World Banks ‘Doing Business Report’ 2018 ranked India at 100, which is a jump of nearly 30 places from its earlier 130 ranking. This would surely give an impetus to our governments ‘Make in India’ and ‘Start-up India ‘initiatives, spurring greater entrepreneurship and hence employability. At the same time the pace of change is tremendous and technology is driving this in a big way. Industry 4.0 , the block chain economy , crypto currency are just some of the disruptions that are challenging the way business is conducted today.

We at ISBS will prepare you to be the leaders that India needs to emerge as a world economic power.

Each one of you has the potential to be a champion and a winner. ISBS with its unique and contemporary curriculum, innovative teaching methodology and experienced academic team, provide you the best launch pad for your dream careers. Extensive industry exposure through our various platforms and a highly dedicated corporate relations team help to attract some of the best recruiters for you. Come be a part of the future – as responsible citizens of a great Nation.

Let ISBS show you the way!

Best always

Director’s Message


The journey of Indira Group of Institutes (IGI), under the aegis of Shree Chanakya Education Society (SCES) has been an enduring one for last 25 years. Since inception, IGI always acknowledged that excellence is seldom a result of happenstance and is more the result of vision, planning and commitment. It is indeed noteworthy to concede the contribution of our visionary Founder Leader and Chairperson, Dr Tarita Shankar, who relentlessly worked towards achieving excellence. Over the decades, IGI has done well by growing its programs strategically while maintaining high standards. All this growth is enabled and sustained by the expertise and exertions of Prof. Chetan Wakalkar, Group Director, Indira Group of Institutes. The central vision at IGI focuses on the potential of its academic institutions to generate waves of positive change, thereby ensuring that individual aspirations flourish, along with sustained growth for students.

Indira School of Business Studies (ISBS), Pune, was established with the explicit vision to provide sustainable impetus to the corporate and entrepreneurial abilities of the youth. ISBS has complete faith in the potential of Indian youth and believes that unleashing such potential, demands students learning to occur within a powerful learning environment which provides active, self-directed acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitudes. Some of the best practices followed are constant strengthening of the teaching- learning processes and focus on the quality of learning.

At ISBS we enlist the support of a strong team of faculty, who put their best efforts to motivate our students and guide them towards professionalism. ISBS is where it is today, due to the synergy between our organizational vision and culture. We have adopted a holistic approach, integrating physical, emotional and social development. We aim to build an attitude amongst the young aspiring managers, on how they can continually expand their capacity to create the results they truly desire. These values form the basis of our efforts to maintain being a premier management institute and we look forward to sharing this experience with you.

As IGI celebrates its silver anniversary and a quarter century of history crafting a world-class education center, I am excited about the future as our momentum is high and our potential is greater than ever. I congratulate IGI on having made a significant impact on lives of so many bright minds and inspired so many of our community leaders. True to its form IGI and its act of goodwill inspires to become the cornerstone of education culture.
