In an interesting collaboration, the Indian School of Business (ISB) and the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) have joined hands to organise the ISB-IIM doctoral consortium for teaching doctoral candidates who are about to start their careers as faculty at Indian B-Schools.

Led by Professors Arun Pereira, Executive Director of the Centre for Learning and Management (CLMP) at ISB, and Sourav Mukherji, Dean of Academic Programmes at IIMB, the consortium drew doctoral candidates at ISB, IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore, IIM Lucknow, IIM Indore, and IIM Kozhikode, among others.

The participants were trained in effective teaching and classroom management by using student-centred learning approaches to teaching, conducting effective case discussions, understanding the changing role of technology inside and outside the classroom, knowing the importance of student learning styles, how to engage with them better and what it takes to design a compelling learning experience for students.

Now in its fourth year, the consortium was for the first time organised jointly by the two B-Schools at ISB’s Hyderabad campus. The programme is targeted at final year FPM /Ph.D./Doctoral candidates, to help them get a head start as they begin their careers. A unique component of the programme is that each participant is required to teach and is provided substantive feedback, along with a recording of their teaching for review and reflection.

The Doctoral Consortium is supported and funded by the International Schools of Business Management (ISBM). ISB Is a member of the ISBM, which is a group comprising leading B-Schools such as HEC Paris, IMD Lausanne, INSEAD Fontainebleau, Kellogg School of Management, North Western University, London Business School, SDA Bocconi, Milan, Stern School of Business, New York University, Stockholm School of Economics, IAE Aix-Marseille Graduate School of Management, and China Europe International Business School (CEIBS).
