About Institute

Indus Business Academy (IBA), Bangalore was established in 2001 with single programme focus in mind – Post Graduate Management Programmes. Over the years the institute has established a tradition for excellence and quality in professional education. Right from the beginning the institution has been attracting students from all parts of the country making it a ‘mini-Indiapura’.

Established in the city of Bengaluru the institution boasts of a sprawling 8.5 acre campus having over 3,20,000 sq. ft. of built up infrastructure with all modern facilities aimed to meet global standards in business education. Faculty at IBA includes academicians based permanently at the institute as well as visiting faculty from leading institutions and expert contributors from the industry which forms a pool of intellectuals with an average experience of 15+ years in industry as well as academia. They bring back the highest standards of teaching and mentoring with diverse backgrounds through their experience as policy makers, researchers, theoreticians and consultants.

Ever since its inception the founding mission at IBA has been to bring excellence in Teaching, Training, Corporate Networking and in Placements. It is not a surprise that the journey in pursuit of this mission has seen it progress into the league of Top 1% B-Schools in India, and stand apart distinctly from the rest.

The institute recently received International Accreditation from IACBE (International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education) which makes it one of the elite 27 B-Schools in India that have been endorsed for their academic quality and excellence in business education at a global level. The accreditation sets the flagship PGDM course (approved by AICTE, Ministry of HRD – Govt. of India) offered at IBA acceptable at a global level for employment as well as higher education. Furthermore, the institute was recently also featured amongst the Asia’s 100 Fastest Growing Private Institutions.

IBA has track record of excellent placements since inception and more than 120 companies visit IBA Bangalore campus every year for Placements offering domestic as well as International placements to the students

At IBA, we believe that no professional management education is complete until students are able to relate Management Theory with practice in more meaningful way. As part of the academic curriculum of the program, the students of PGDM are required to take up Corporate Internship/Project in reputed organizations for 3 months. The internship is carefully designed so that it is mutually beneficial to both organization and student.

The internship is expected to contribute significantly to students understanding of the practice of management, in the context of them having learnt the theories of management in the first year of their management education. Organization on the other hand could use the student resource for managerial assignments/projects and addressing live problems faced by the organization.
