The Indian School of Business (ISB) will now aid Andhra Pradesh government in framing development strategies.

M Goutham Reddy, State Minister for Industries, IT and Skills, visited ISB’s campus here and requested the business school to come up with a governance model to create a synchronous functioning of the departments of development.

An Advisory Council on Development of Andhra Pradesh will be formed with ISB as a nodal agency. The key areas of engagement identified to be taken up on a ‘project mode’ are: attracting investments, synchronous functioning of departments and matching skills to jobs, among others.

“ISB faculty and students are delighted to collaborate with the government of Andhra Pradesh on the agenda of inclusive and sustainable development through the JumpStartIndia@ISB initiative,” said Ashwini Chhatre, Associate Professor of Public Policy, ISB, in a press release.
