Facilities at ICFAI

Case-Based Learning: The case method is a key component of the academic program at IBS, which is one of the few institutions in India who have made case-based learning a critical component of pedagogy.

Internships: ICFAI Business School is unique in its approach towards practical training. IBS has integrated Internships into the curriculum. IBS feels that this approach is necessary as most of the students joining management programs in India have no work experience and therefore a longer exposure to the corporate environment through Internships will make them better equipped to take on the real-life business challenges.

Internships have a rigorous faculty monitoring system to ensure that the projects are done by the students to the satisfaction of the senior management of the company. Such efforts also strengthen the relationship with the industry and pave the way for placing students.

Faculty Members: ICFAI brings together a team of knowledgeable and committed faculty members from academia and industry, and an excellent infrastructure to provide students with the best learning environment to develop themselves into well groomed, industry ready professionals. During the last twenty-six years the institution has grown in all spheres, and today IBS is ranked among the top business schools in the country.

Pedagogy: The pedagogy, which is a combination of lectures, case discussions, experiential learning, industry interactions and peer learning, provides students opportunities to develop their interpersonal, critical thinking and decision-making skills which are valued by organizations. The co-curricular and extra-curricular activities managed by various student clubs provide students the opportunity to develop their team working, organizing, collaborating, and leadership skills.

Campus: ICFAI Business School is well equipped with a state-of-the art campus off Mysore Road in Southwest Bangalore with excellent facilities for academic enrichment, professional development and sports. A multi-speciality hospital, retail outlets and restaurants near the campus are other conveniences that the students value. The proximity of the campus to NICE Road, an expressway, and the upcoming Namma Metro provide fast connections to the heart of the city and beyond.

The three-storey building which has been built inside the campus takes the shape of a loop. The spacious classrooms facilitate interaction between the students and the faculty. When not in class, the students can get together in the food court to meet up over a quick snack or a leisurely lunch. The library has an extensive collection of periodicals, journals, and a wide assortment of books to support academic activity, including research. A health clinic with a doctor on duty is open during working hours for faculty, staff, and students.
