ISDM's campus in NOIDA Sector 62 promises to be a vibrant, enriching place where students will work together to learn from each other as much as from the faculty. Discussions and debates will be the medium of classroom learning. Something every institute from K-12 to Higher Education should really move towards.
We are excited about welcoming a truly diverse batch of young professionals who are keen to make a difference by working with social sector organizations. 80% of them have already worked in the sector and are committed to social change. 50% of them are post graduates already and want to further their knowledge and skill sets. Our first cohort represents geographical diversity at its best!

An interesting article by Gaurav Shah, Founder of ISDM on the cultural dichotomy facing a development professional...
As ISDM steps into the final phase of applications for our first cohort, we are excited about the diversity of professionals joining the development sector. It is humbling to see talented and meritorious students make the right choices and devote their efforts towards bringing about scalable social change. Careers in the social sector are challenging because of the complexity of developmental issues. Now, more than ever before, young people are taking up opportunities as social entrepreneurs, CSR professionals, development managers, fund raisers and as part of think tanks. Millenials are inspired to bring meaning to their work and ISDM aims to prepare them to do so.
Most young people when asked about what they want to be remembered for will say that they want to 'make a difference' or 'leave the world a better place'. However when choosing a career, we are more conscious of the things that the world counts as measures of success. Is there a point where both these things match? Can we choose a career that inspires others?
