With exorbitant fees of $30,000 would ISB be still able to attract the best talent especially working professionals in the future.Since these programmes offer quality MBA at much lower price.

" Whether ISB would be able to sustain its larger than life image"

In the last couple of years a new IVY league has cropped up in India like

XLRI singapore programme
Great Lakes in Madras
IMT Dubai programme(1year, 2 years)
Spjain Dubai-Singapore
ISME Bangalore(16 months)
BIM Bangalore, one year
MDI, Europe

With exorbitant fees of $30,000 would ISB be still able to attract the best talent especially working professionals in the future.Since these programmes offer quality MBA at much lower price.

Well i feel that when you talk about the 1 year programe then i would like to brig it to your notice that 1 year PGPIM at IMI,Delhi is one of the first 1 year programes to be started in India and now this program ranks in the top 10 "1" year MBA courses of Asia
(By Asiaweek 2004..the only other Indian B-School there was IIM-B)

Also the PGPIM has students from all over the world and Indian students include General Managers of HAL who are 54-55 years old and young corporates who are 25 with atleast 3 years of work-ex. Also the government of various countries have sponsored their candidates to study at IMI.

Still,i feel that ISB due to its world class infrastructure and good connections with Wharton,LBS and Kellogs is better than IMI's one year course.

Shivanku

By the way, Indian Ivy League is : -

1. IIMA
2. IIMC
3. IIMB
4. ISB

The order is according to the ranking that I feel.

The Indian top 10s (non IL) are : -

1. IIML
2. XLRI
3. IIMK
4. IIMI
5. FMS
6. SP Jain
7. MDI

And the schools knocking on the doors are: -

1. IIFT
2. Jamnalal Bajaj

Top Specialized Programs for Engineers (as they are single breed for whom MBA is a must in India): -
1. IITs/IISc MBA program for Engineers
2. NITIE

What made you mentions these schools in the same breath as ISB. It is like comparing Harvard with NUS. NUS is good, no doubt but this comparison is plain ridiculous.

ISB has got competition from IIMs not from the schools you mentioned...

Now you might say that IIMs primarily take freshers. But I do not see there is any reason that it won't change in the near future. The thing is that now people with interest in I-Banks and M-Consultancy are gettin offers for the Analyst post justy like US undergrads particularly in IITs and other top colleges in the respective fields. So, it can very well happen that most of the CAT crackers are not freshers but work-ex holders in the comin years. Besides IIMs might increase the weightage awarded to work-ex. Remember all US B-Schools were initially for freshers. Later On, they started takinh mainly experienced people.

Besides, ISB might have competition from IIMs Ex. MBA batches. The Big 3s IIM - A, B & C have lined up their Ex. MBA courses and it is only a matter of time before others follow suit. The avg. profile of incoming batch at IIMA's X-MBA is much better than ISB's. Besides, X-MBA has considerably lower fees that can tilt scales in its favor slightly. (Fees is not of considerable concern for the people who join this course).

Last but not the least, it is a hard fact that a person with a similar profile will get better offer at IIM than he will get at ISB. The averages conceal the fact that majority of people at ISB are with work-ex. If we look at the averages of people with similar work-ex there is a considerable difference between IIMs and ISB. ISB still has a lot of catching to do.

ISB is moving fast. But it has to make amends. It has to follow the standards of INSEAD and might need to carefully advertise its scholarship policy. The motive should be to offer carrots to people who have already got into a US B-School and are aspiring for the same and woo away experienced IIM admits.

For the record, ISB requires at least 10 years of fast track growth to catch up with IIM brand name.
