IBA Faculty - The torch bearers of knowledge

One cannot venture to profile the faculty of IBA in a generalised or standard expression. In fact, some of them are not even 'lecturers' or 'professors'. They have the proficiency on the subject through years and decades of front-line battling experience and are excellent communicators. In fact, every single learning hour at IBA campus ticks away through effective communication, whether it is a class-room lecture based on books or case studies or Guest Lecture Series that are a regular twice-a-week event - sometimes stretching the whole day. This gives the students tremendous opportunity to interact with real-life situations and study the same in multidimensional perspectives.

The IBA curriculum which is current and futuristic, needs faculty of great caliber to present and deliver. As such the faculty are carefully resourced from Senior Managers from multinationals, Academicians, and Consultants, etc. The core faculty at IBA mentor and facilitate students, ever ready and by their side, monitoring their progress. In sum, the whole group of facilitators and communicators strive together to ensure that IBA offers program content which is locally relevant and contemporary and at the sametime is global and futuristic.
