ISB Online Broadens Impact by Offering Learning Solutions for Higher Education Institutions

  • ISB Online offers diverse learning solutions with a vision to elevate outcomes for the learning value chain from graduate students to working professionals.
  • ISB Online prepares for significant growth in its learner base by FY24-25 across Higher Education Institutes, Enterprises and Government sectors.

 ISB Online, the proprietary digital learning platform of the Indian School of Business (ISB), announces the expansion of its offerings to autonomous educational institutions, as well as public, deemed and private universities, democratising world-class education.

With this expansion, ISB Online will now cater to a broad class of global learners, ranging from undergraduate students to early and mid-career professionals and senior executives across industries and domains, empowering them with the business acumen needed to excel in today’s dynamic workplace.

ISB Online’s offerings for higher education institutes enhance curricula, improve teaching outcomes, and boost student employability. Learners are offered world-class education, flexible and self-paced learning options, personalised experiences, and networking opportunities. Emphasising on enhancing employability through skills-based interventions and global perspectives, ISB Online provides an array of blended learning tracks comprising management, leadership, business strategy, entrepreneurship, technology, and behavioural sciences. Institutions can access high-quality programmes, avail faculty development opportunities, and gain the ability to establish Centres of Professional Excellence.

Deepa Mani, Deputy Dean, Executive Education and Digital Learning, and Professor of Information Systems, ISB said, “At ISB Online, we envision a future where quality education is accessible to a wide spectrum of learners anytime, anywhere. Our mission is to empower learners with leading-edge knowledge, enhanced employability, and opportunities for lifelong learning. This aligns with ISB’s vision of grooming future leaders for India and the world.”

She added, “In response to the significant growth in the Indian online education market, we view our academic solutions for higher education institutions as a catalyst for breaking barriers to quality education. By working closely with heads of institutions – Deans, Chancellors, and Programme Directors – we aim to create dynamic and engaging learning experiences that prepare students for the future of work.”

The Department of Economic Affairs reports that only 51.3% of Indian graduates are employable, and this number is heavily skewed towards the urban markets in the top 10 states. ISB Online aims to bridge this gap through its state-of-the-art digital learning experience that empowers learners with industry-relevant skills at scale. Notably, the market potential for online university education in India is projected to grow over twofold, from nearly 7.1 million learners in 2023 to 15 million learners in 2029.

With plans to double our current learner base of 10,000 by FY24-25, we foresee this upward trajectory gaining even more momentum. We aim to drive growth in vital economic sectors and prepare students to be globally aware and job-market ready.”

Drawing on insights from research and extensive experience in understanding learner behaviour, ISB Online offers a learning experience that features innovative pedagogy and formats including active, immersive, social learning.
