Established in 2012, ISB’s Mohali campus is a state-of-the art facility. Completely Wi-Fi enabled, the campus’ infrastructure meets global standards. The campus is also Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified and won the Times of India-Honeywell Smart Building Awards for 2015.
The Tri-City area of Mohali, Chandigarh and Panchkula is the perfect place to spend the most memorable year of your life. The culture-rich area surely leaves a lasting impression on the minds of the ISB participants. Interacting with local families through ISB’s Aikya programme adds to the memories. At the heart of Chandigarh is Sukhna Lake, another attraction of the tri-city, offering peace and tranquillity. One would find several ISBians going there for a jog to rejuvenate post a hectic week at ISB.
Unlike the larger cities, clean and clear roads coupled with pollution-free air offer a perfect getaway from the otherwise hectic life inside campus. The area also houses various malls (Elante Mall being the favourite of ISBians) and food joints including the famous Pal Dhaba, Chhatwal’s and Chawla’s - offering a treat to taste buds. If one wants a taste of nightlife, Whistling Duck, Peddlers and Underdoggs are a few must-visit places.
If that’s not enough, the new international airport is just a 10-minute drive from the campus, making travel to different parts of the country extremely convenient.
Proximity to Delhi
Being close to Delhi is another advantage of being at the Mohali campus. While it makes it easy to invite NCR-based alumni to campus and organize industry treks to Delhi - facilitating interactions between ISB students and NCR-based recruiters, it also allows students to frequently visit family and friends in the capital.
The Hill Stations
Mohali adds a lot of colour to life at ISB. With most hill stations at a stone’s throw distance, there is no dearth of travel destinations during weekends and term-breaks. During the last couple of terms at ISB, students make the most of this advantageous location and explore the untouched places in the foothills of the Himalayas. While McLeodganj is a favourite Term-1 break destination, Shimla, Kasauli, Dalhousie, Triund and Kasol are other popular hill stations on the bucket list of most ISBians.
With a class size relatively smaller than that at the Hyderabad campus, the Mohali campus helps develop a close-knit community, as each student gets to know every other student well during the year.
Mohali also brings a Punjabi touch to ISB students coming from all parts of the country. By the end of the year, one is very likely to find people humming Punjabi songs and dancing to Honey Singh’s tunes!
Overall, Mohali is a dream location, adding many colours to your ISB journey. ISB’s rigour, complemented by the calm and peace presented by the city, surely adds a lot to your personality and gives you memories that last a lifetime.
