The crowning factor of any business program is placements. It provides insights into the real world of management, a chance to use the skills you have and to develop them further. The robust placement cell at ISBR has been functioning effectively to ensure that the studentís are placed across industries, verticals and roles. From just placing students to actively playing a role in grooming and molding a student to be corporate ready, the activities have grown over the years.
Here are some of the measures taken by the placement department to sharpen basic business acumen and polish studentís skill set further.
Organizational Study (OS)
In the 1st semester, many studentís face a dilemma when it comes to choosing specializations, to which we give them a hands on opportunity to explore their career interest while working with different department of the organization.
