International Conference, Institute of Business Administration

The Institute of Business Administration (IBA) is a premium academic and research institute and is one of the oldest business schools outside North America. It was established in 1955 with initial technical support provided by the world-famous Wharton School of Finance, University of Pennsylvania. Later, the university of Southern California set up various facilities at the institute and several prominent American professors were assigned to the IBA. The course content, the curriculum, the pedagogical tools and the assessment methods were developed under the guidance of reputed scholars from these two institutions. IBA has zealously guarded the high standards and academic traditions it has inherited from Wharton and USC while adapting and adjusting them with the passage of time
