The Indian School of Business (ISB) celebrated the success of its ranking in Financial Times London's ‘Top 50 Global MBAs for Finance’ by 'ringing the bell' at the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). ISB continues to be the only Indian B-school in the Top 50 FT Finance MBA ranking globally.

Adi Godrej, Chairman, Godrej Group and Member, ISB Executive Board, led the bell-ringing ceremony. Other dignitaries present during the ceremony were: Professor Rajendra Srivastava, Dean ISB; Professor Krishnamurthy Subramanian, Executive Director - Centre for Analytical Finance and Associate Professor of Finance at ISB; Raamdeo Agrawal, Co-founder, Motilal Oswal Group; Ashishkumar Chauhan, MD & CEO of BSE Limited; Arun Thukral, MD, Axis Securities Ltd; and Prakash Kalothia, CEO & Managing Director, Lapis India Capital. As part of the ceremony, a panel discussion on ‘Future of finance as we know it’ was organised.

Professor Srivastava announced ISB’s entry in the city of Mumbai through its first off-campus programme: PGPpro (a weekend programme for working professionals). He also announced that a PGP in Finance would be launched soon. He thanked the recruiters and alumni from Mumbai who were present there during the event. He said, "Mumbai is the financial capital of India and what could be a better place to announce the PGP Finance, which is exclusively for the people working in the finance sector. Many of our faculty are on the boards of banks and financial institutions and also contribute to policy-making decisions at national level. It’s a moment of pride for us and we are very happy that our ranking has gone up from the last year. This has been possible due to the success of our alumni network, our recruiters, strong research credentials of our faculty and support from the industry."

The panel moderated by Professor Subramanian discussed the topic around the changing dynamics of finance and how can that be inculcated in management programme to make students industry ready.

ISB has been ranked at number 44 in the recent rankings. The school has improved two positions over its previous year rankings.
