ISBF was founded in 2006 with the vision of providing a world‐class education in the areas of Economics, Management and Finance in India, through collaborations with leading international institutions.All undergraduate and postgraduate programmes taught at ISBF are offered under the aegis of University of London, with academic direction from LSE. ISBF is the ‘college’ in this ecosystem, where students come to attend classes, undergo formative assessments and partake in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
University of London awards the final degrees and diplomas to ISBF’s graduates. ISBF was an Affiliate Centre (highest recognition tier) of UOL for a decade before becoming a Recognised Teaching Centre (RTC) under the new single-tier recognition system.
Academic direction for all programmes comes from LSE, which is ranked among the top 10 institutions in the world for the areas of Economics, Management and Finance (QS Rankings, 2019). This means that there is parity of content and examination standards vis-à-vis those followed internally at LSE.
