The Indian School of Business has opened its new campus in Mohali, designed by New York-based Perkins Eastman and RSP from Bangalore. Spread over 70 acres in Knowledge City, the 1,000-capacity education building includes a 500-seater auditorium, high definition video conferencing facilities and various lecture theatres.
210 students are already studying at the new facility however this will be increased to 1,000 over time as the Women Entrepreneurs Development Programme takes full effect. The Indian School of Business is currently part of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women Initiative and has begun training female businesswomen as part of its ongoing programme.
Plans are to expand the campus further in the next three years using an additional Rs 100 crore to the Rs 250 crore already pumped into the Institute. The new building is the first ‘blue-chip’ business school in Punjab and is being supported by the Kellogg School of Management and the London School of Business.
