The ICFAI Group Pioneering professional education for over 30 years
ICFAI was established in 1984 as a not-for-profit society with the broad
objective of empowering citizens through world class quality education. The
Institute announced its arrival into the Indian education fora by launching
a high end, innovative professional program in financial analysis in 1985.
The Program was first-of-its-kind in India, aimed at equipping students and
working professionals with cutting-edge knowledge in contemporary areas of
finance. Since its establishment, ICFAI Group has made a significant mark in
the Indian educational field with a pan-Indian network and presence.
Innovation has been the mainstay of ICFAI Group with innovation prevalent in its programs and even its culture. Subsequently, there was a big leap when ICFAI Group started its chain of business schools (IBS) across India in 1995 to offer management program. Since its inception, IBS has been consistently ranked among the top ranked B-Schools of India providing excellent academic delivery and infrastructure to its students and transforming them into leaders for the future.
Another example that is a testimony to the culture of innovation is the introduction of Case Study methodology at IBS. The Case Research Center at IBS, has become a center of excellence and has won several accolades across the world.

ICFAI Group focuses on learning rather than instruction. In addition, the institute is engaged in important areas of research covering environmental sustainability, agricultural economics, health policy, financial economics, banking, intellectual property rights etc. There have been path-breaking research and good quality publications in these areas.
Flexible and tech enabled learning also plays an important role in ICFAI's teaching methodology. The delivery takes place with the use of hi-tech learning management system at campus programs and content delivery for distance learning through online medium.
ICFAI Group practices the value of academic integrity at all levels. As a policy, admissions are purely based on merit and there is nothing like capitation fee et al. The fee payable is published in the application material and that remains unchanged.
The ICFAI Group's culture of teaching and learning supports and fosters intellectual and personality development among its graduating students. They carry an attitude of ownership of their work. ICFAI Group strives to make the students - DOERS. The programs are designed such that the students & professionals graduating from the institution have the ability to take risks, make decisions and own the work.
