Aritra, thanks for posting here. While ISB is very well-regarded in India, it’s less well-know to international applicants (at least right now). Could you tell us more about your international classmates - what percentage of the class is from outside India and why have they chosen ISB for their MBA? What do you think they are planning to do post MBA? Also, could you tell us more about your superstar peers… what do you mean and how this could benefit applicants from outside India?
