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
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
