About the Indian School of Business (ISB)

The Indian School of Business (ISB) is a global Business school offering world-class management education across its two campuses – Hyderabad and Mohali. The School has grown at a rapid pace since its inception and already has several notable accomplishments to its credit – it is the youngest school ever to consistently rank among the top Global MBA programmes, the first institution in South Asia to receive the prestigious AACSB accreditation, one of the largest providers of Executive Education in Asia, and the most research productive Indian management institution.

A vibrant pool of research-oriented resident faculty, strong academic associations with leading global B-schools and the backing of an influential Board, have helped the ISB fast emerge as a premier global Business school in the emerging markets.


The Technology Entrepreneurship Programme (TEP) brings to life and extends the ISB’s enduring theme of creating knowledge for the service of society. Through TEP the School seeks to guide and inspire talented engineering student’s entrepreneurial spirit; generating and translating innovations to positively impact individuals, communities, institutions, and societies. We seek to inspire and prepare students for innovative leadership and to actively support and encourage the translation of knowledge in the service of society.

Designed for Young Tech Minds

The TEP is tailored specifically for young engineering students. The tools this program provides are immensely beneficial both inside and outside of the business world. For those students who aspire to be entrepreneurs, it allows them to jumpstart that process by testing out and experimenting with ideas. For those students who want to become core engineers and join large companies it helps them develop skills to innovate and succeed in their field.

Taking a step ahead from engineering

This program has two goals:
1. It shall help the students develop several key competencies, offer a broad management education, and enable them to be more innovative and self-confident in whatever careers they choose to undertake.
2. It offers mentoring and other support to help the student’s efforts to create and launch new business ventures.

TEP has developed a two-year semi virtual program, a combination of online and offline modules.

The Semi Virtual Programme format allows participants to understand and practice the concepts of design, management and entrepreneurship while continuing their technical learning at their home institutions.

The TEP seeks to provide innovative approaches to engineering education through a combination of learning, experience and mentoring. TEP gives students diverse learning opportunities through interactions with global faculty, experiential learning, and industry contact.
