campus of a world-class institution of higher learning. The
facilities are immaculately maintained in line with the IBA
tradition of excellence in all facets of its activities.

lush green sprawling lawns, which serves as a backdrop to an
extremely conducive environment for academic pursuit. It houses the
program offices, faculty offices, a library, an auditorium, two
computer labs and eleven classrooms.
The City Campus is in the heart of the business district of the
city. Apart from housing 20 classrooms, it has a library, an
auditorium, conference and seminar rooms, and four computer labs.

attended mainly by professional managers. The classrooms at both the
campuses are large and airy, and are fully-equipped with modern
audiovisual facilities, to enhance the learning experience and make

customer-centered approach. The library services have completely
been revamped and have come a long way from what they used to be.

that are at par excellence as to the any global academic library.
Libraries house around 60,000 volumes on the subjects related to the
academic and research programs being offered at the institute. To

distinguishing feature of the library. Currently, libraries
subscribe to more than 20 e-databases, which provide access to
around 10,000 e-journals and more that 100,000 e-books. Whether it
is a case study of Harvard or an article published in Harvard
Business Review in 1930s or a news item published in a newspaper of
Czech Republic or a time series financial data of any of the stock
listed company of the world, library has made this accessible to all
of its patrons.

industry standard library automation and management system, which
enables patrons a secure access to their library accounts and
