Applications to get admission into the postgraduate programmes of the Indian School of Business & Finance (ISBF) for session 2021 are closing soon. The one-year programmes are academically directed by London School of Economics and are validated by the University of London.
In light of the ongoing lockdown due to COVID-19, the entire process for the Graduate Diploma programmes at Indian School of Business & Finance (ISBF) has been made completely online.
ISBF has 100 seats for the 2021 intake across four graduate diploma programmes, namely,
- Graduate Diploma in Economics
- Graduate Diploma in Finance
- Graduate Diploma in Management
- Graduate Diploma in Data Science
ISBF follows a rounds-based rolling admissions policy, which means that other things equal, applicants of earlier rounds have a higher likelihood of being accepted into the programme of their choice. It also means that applications will be closed as soon as all seats are filled.
Step 1: Filling the Application Form

Step 2: ISBF Graduate Diploma Entrance Test
It is mandatory for all the applicants to appear for the ISBF Graduate Diploma Entrance Test, which is conducted online in each Admission Round. Exemptions from this mandate are granted only on the basis of the following scores:
- 650 or above in GMAT, or
- 90 Percentile or above in CAT, or
- 300 or above in GRE
The ISBF Graduate Diploma Entrance Test examines a candidate’s ability to reason logically and apply concepts and techniques learnt in Mathematics and English.
Step 3: Personal Interview (PI)
All candidates must appear for the Personal Interview (PI). There is no exemptions from the PI on any grounds.
The PI is intended to assess applicants’ motivation to pursue further studies at ISBF, their ability to do so successfully, and their overall fit into the ISBF student body.
Outstation students may appear for PI through online mode via Skype, or through the offline mode at the ISBF campus in New Delhi.
Once all three steps are completed, a candidate’s application will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee in full. The final admission decision will take into consideration:
- The ISBF Graduate Diploma Entrance Score (40% weight)
- Performance in the PI (40% weight)
- Graduation Scores & Class XII Scores (20% weight)
