ISB to Offer "Early Entry Option" for recent grads

Students must have completed 2 years of work experience by the time of enrollment

The Indian School of Business (ISB) has announced that it will add an "early entry option" to its PGP (post graduate program in management), specifically for applicants with little to no work experience.

Candidates selected through the new option will secure deferred admission, and will need to gain at least 24 months of work experience by the time they actually enroll.

Applicants will be assessed on three factors: academic performance, leadership potential, and personality.

ISB normally requires two years of work experience to apply to its one-year PGP program. The current cohort has 5 years of experience, on average.

In India, PGP programs are generally seen as MBA equivalents. 

For more information, please see ISB's PGP early entry option webpage.
