Redefining Industry-Collaborations

Industry-academia partnerships are a key focus of IIBS’s MBA programs. These partnerships manifest in many ways, such as mentorship, projects funded by industries and internships.

By bridging the gap between academia and the industry, students can enhance their overall learning outcomes through this practical experience.
