ISBR Business School MBA is great as students get to sit on a charter plane and enjoy the ride because education here was taken seriously but that seriousness had different elements attached to it. One has to be little precautionary though because placements aren’t that great and one has to be on their toes all the time. One should never miss a single opportunity to get noticed because things are not the same as top B-Schools when it comes to placements. However, I would say all and all ok as one will learn playing mind games with our mates. It is necessary because at the end of the day, it’s a competition and the same competition we have at the corporate world too. So, you can trust my word that if you are not getting admissions elsewhere, ISBR can be a good choice because not much fusses when it comes to admissions here. Yes, test, GD & PI exists but a mere formality to be honest. Those who want admissions here can get admissions here and that’s true.
Academics here was a stage where we had to do a lot of project work, live projects, attend a lot of seminars. There were good trainers and faculties in place who helped throughout but a lot of self-motivation and self-study too was required. Academics here was more of a life and death game because students were not forced to do things but as I have said getting noticed is quite important or else it may cost you with placements. How important is education is something that everyone knows and especially after knowing that this is the last leg of studies, all the students here gave their all and most of us were comfortably placed too. So, all thanks to academic stage of the college because it helped us fly.
The love triangle between the students, faculties, and the management was the thing to be seen here. If we had problem with a faculty, we had the management to go to and likewise if the faculty had the problem with the students, they would do the same. Similarly, the management will come to both if there’s a change in schedule or programming. So, this love affair helped things stayed cooler and calmer between the students, management, and the faculties.
ISBR Business School placement cell never rested because all twelve months they were on their toes. They couldn’t play with their skin because ISBR is definitely not the first choice of the corporate and therefore making us train harder and harder and I honestly remember, I gave over 100 virtual interviews before the final round. Unless and until the placement cell thought that we were ready they never put us under the hat. So, at first thing, you will have to impress the people who were in charge of the placement cell and then the recruiters. Top recruiters were some banks, insurance companies, hospitals, and FMCG companies. On and average the students were offered 4-6 lakhs. The overall placement percentage was around 80 odds.
Since, the college has a nice strength of outsiders; the college does have two beautiful hostels at the campus. The hostels were full as getting a seat there was tough because there’s a law college and a degree college too inside the campus. Outsiders have started coming to ISBR as the college has done some good promotions and therefore if one needs hostel facilities, they need to apply it at the first thing because getting a seat in hostel is tougher than getting admissions to the college. The hostel food was also great as my friends from East, West, and North stayed at the hostels and were quite vocal that they have never suffered because of food.
The college is located in the midst of Pharma and IT hub and the college looks like one of them. The buildings are advanced and more picturesque than many of the IT or for that matter Pharma company R&D offices. The MBA block was the best of them all as it had major student strength and therefore our building had all the facilities. We had our own auditorium, our own library, and a gym inside our building. The refreshment stall of our building became fish market during the breaks as everyone would just come and grab their cup of coffee or the cold drink. The infrastructure was awesome as keeping us tied to the building for 8 hours daily there has to some major facilities and luckily the college had that.
A lot of experiments kept happening at the college and therefore the campus life was cool as a cucumber. Students of the college were hard working as they tried for weeks, and months to make sure they enter the good books of faculties, management and the people of looked after the training cell. So, campus was the place where I majorly learned how to keep people happy and that is my idea of campus life at the ISBR.
ISBR was chosen as Christ had a tough criterion for admissions, and I didn't qualify for that. ISBR was referred to me by one of my friends who already studied International Business here. I have no issues studying here because placements may not be right up there or the facilities which Christ, IIM Bangalore, or the other top B-Schools of Bangalore has may not be there but there was peace and some good faculties who gave us the liberty to study the way we wanted. The skill set and the mind deve... Read Full Review

At ISBR, you will always have enough time to get in. Firstly, there is no Kannada culture here as every second individual here is from other parts of the country. I will confess that I came to know about this College during the final semester of my BBA. However, there were quite a few students, who said they have purposely come here. ISBR never puts pressure on students as every time the faculties will come in and start asking questions and punish us with assignments. There's an assurity with th... Read Full Review
