On armed forces flag day (December 7), the Indian School of Business (ISB) has announced a collaboration with the Government, in which ISB will offer a 50% tuition fee waiver to armed forces veterans or serving personnel looking to move into civilian life. The waiver will be offered to 22 veterans each academic year across its postgraduate and advanced management courses. The ISB's collaboration with the Government of India's department of ex-servicemen welfare aligns with the ISB's ongoing commitment to the armed services, particularly in adding the most recent and in-depth management capabilities to the huge skillset that armed forces members and veterans already have. Vijoy Kumar Singh, IAS, secretary, department of ex-servicemen welfare, Government of India, said, “We extend our sincere gratitude to the Indian School of Business for offering a 50 percent fee waiver in recognition of the services of Armed Forces personnel.” He added, “Most of our Armed Forces personnel retire at a younger age and are most disciplined and filled with zeal and vigour to serve the country. We are hopeful this initiative will provide a valuable opportunity for our veterans and soon to retire armed force personnel to pursue world-class education at ISB and play a leadership role in making a ‘Viksit Bharat’ by 2047.”
