The Mohali campus of the Indian School of Business (ISB) was formally inaugurated today by the Union Minister of Finance, Mr. P Chidambaram, in the presence of the Chief Minister of Punjab, Sardar Parkash Singh Badal. The event was also attended by Chairman of the ISB, Adi Godrej and founding board members of the Mohali campus, Analjit Singh, Rakesh Bharti Mittal, Sunil Kant Munjal and Atul Punj, other members of the ISB Executive Board, senior government officials, business leaders, faculty and representatives from the ISB’s Associate Schools, students, alumni and staff.
Endorsing the Board’s support, Adi Godrej, Chairman, ISB, said, “Our expansion into Mohali, allowing for a greater geographic outreach apart, has given us an opportunity to foray into important new areas – Manufacturing, Healthcare, Infrastructure and Public Policy – through the specific institutes set-up for the purpose. This, we believe will provide a significant fillip to nurturing talent and research in areas critical to India’s development.”
Speaking at the occasion Ajit Rangnekar, Dean, ISB said, “The inauguration of our Mohali campus is an important milestone in the ISB’s eleven year successful history of setting benchmarks in the field of management education. As we embark on our next phase of growth, we aim to strengthen our academic outreach, focus more on research and work closely with the government and industry to make a larger impact on industry, policy and the society we live in.”
