The education management industry is again changing drastically, with the pressures of global recession . The expectation of the student, in the post recession world, and expectation of the Industry from a Management student is also changing . Industry has started looking credibility of a Management Student beyond his degree and academic performance .

Industry understands the word "DO". At the end of the day , that is what defines the credibility of the Management Student , in the viewpoint of Industry .

At ISB&T ( Indian School of Business Transformation) both the Board of Directors , Board of Advisers and the Board of Faculties ,Student coordinators, has an extensive focus on the Word "DO".

We want our students not just talk "Business Transformation " , but "DO" it .

As a Business School , of next generation (Business School 2.0 ) , ISB&T is completly focussed on the world collaboration. It has the mission of "Wining together".

The three fundamental facets of ISB&T stands together to build the business school of future - the Bschool 2.0

1. Transform Business
2. DO
3. Win Together

They each complement other . They are tied up as a cohesive formula building new forms of Business school ,which is transformational.

When medical doctors take the Hippocratic oath, they pledge first to do no harm to their patients. On June 3rd more than 400 students graduating from Harvard Business School took an oath amounting to much the same thing. At an unofficial ceremony the day before they received their MBAs, the students promised they would, among other things, “serve the greater good”, “act with the utmost integrity” and guard against “decisions and behavior that advance my own narrow ambitions, but harm the enterprise and the societies it serves.” The student oath is part of a larger effort to turn management from a trade into a profession—a crusade that Messrs Khurana and Nohria proposed in a much-discussed article last October in the Harvard Business Review. When the business school was founded in 1908, the goal was to create something along the lines of Harvard’s medical and law schools. But the mission was soon abandoned, not least because there was no agreement about how managers should behave. A set of shared values is one of the defining features of a profession. Lawyers and doctors have their own codes, but business-school professors tend to embrace Milton Friedman’s claim that the only responsibility of business is to maximize profits. They have told their students that as managers their sole mission should be increasing shareholder value. It may seem ridiculous that students who have spent over $100,000 on two years of study in an effort to get very rich are now so keen to rebrand themselves as virtuous. Such naivety, if that is what it is, will not survive long beyond the university’s walls. But the students may just be putting their marketing lessons into practice. They are entering the worst job market for graduating MBAs in decades. Many see non-profit and government jobs as their best bet. So embracing the “values agenda” could prove useful. What is ISB&Ts "Education Beyond Boundaries" initiative all about? Are your trying to emulate the "Doctors Without Borders"? If that's what you wish to do, kudos to you. It's a worth cause.

Its about incorporation the social and environment agendas with Business agenda. Business itself is a means to achieve the strategic goals for collective good of society and environment . To many people have got involved in the means and forgot the real strategic goals . Education beyond boundaries , is where the boundaries of thoughts are eliminated to create a right balance between business and society.

Its nice to see education management changing the way it is and as the perception of organizations change towards the students who come out of institutions, as the credibility of the students is not just their degrees anymore so this is good step Joydip.......
