The Indira Group of Institutes [IGI] had much to cheer about the Annual All India B School Survey for 2020.
For the first time ever, all IGI B’ Schools are ranked among the top 75 private institutes in India.
Indira College of Engineering and Management, Pune maintained its legacy by securing the 68th rank among all Private institutions in the country. Indira Global Business School, Pune ranked 72nd in the list.
“We are delighted to know that we have improved our ranking in the Times B School, Annual All India B School Survey 2020 significantly. This is a testament to the continual improvement in MBA program we have always aimed to achieve over the years.” Quoted Dr. Virendra Tatake, Director, Indira Global Business School, Pune.
A virtual classroom is an online learning environment that allows teachers and students to communicate,
interact, collaborate, explain ideas. IGBS Faculties broke down most of the common barriers to synchronous learning: cost, distance and timing though
Summer Internship Program (SIP) is one of the most important assignments for MBA trainees as they
experience the corporate world for two months. But today COVID-19 seems to have crippled the world. The dreaded disease has uprooted the very foundation of our lives and have endangered the existence of mankind.
This pandemic had brought the world to a standstill. IGBS with help of its corporate relations department ensured majority of the students get their internships with a corporate organization where they work online. This ensured the precious 2 months of a student are not wasted because of the pandemic. IGBS has launched an E-sip initiative wherein one on one guidance is given to students related to their internships. Stepwise progress report presentations are scheduled for the students to give them timely feedback and guidance.
Indira Global Business School conducted its First Student’s Case Study Competition on the 11th of
February 2020.

This annual case competition invited MBA students to analyze and present the solution for a Case Study that was given to them three days before the Competition. The Chief Guest for the Competition was Dr. Deppanjay Bhalerao. The icing on the cake was that the Case Study was his own work and has been acknowledged at several platforms.

Given as a winter assignment, the “Spreading Smiles” which started in the year 2017 has brought up a positive driving force which triggered the thought that it is our social and moral responsibility to contribute towards our society and environment.
I have always felt that I was so lucky to be a student at IGBS. The thing I admire the most about IGBS is the support I received from everyone at the campus. I wouldn’t have been able to achieve what I have achieved without that caring environment. The friendly atmosphere here and the fact the teachers are really close to the students makes it unique. Here, I not only developed my academic skills but also got a global exposure in every field be it my specialization or other curricular activities. It has imparted a perfect blend of technical and soft skills and made me ready for industry.
My experience at Indira Global Business School has meant career advancement to a highly responsible and challenging position in the corporate world. Along with that goes an increased sense of self-esteem and a feeling of accomplishment and personal satisfaction. The energy and enthusiasm driven by our Professors bought nothing but the best out of us. I didn’t spend time studying rather I spent it learning, growing and having fun. All this and beyond, to the best Alma Mater I’ve ever had.

IGBS offers a sea of opportunities to explore your potential come up as a business professional supported by a rich alumni network, industry association and best in class placement opportunity to shape your career. It has been an year working at Deloitte and I’m grateful to IGBS for giving me such a brilliant breakthrough for my career.
