The class and culture of International Institute for Special Institution-IISE is as rich as the city in which it is located. Located in the city of Nawabs, Lucknow, IISE is not merely a Management College. It is an institution that acts as a conversion centre where individuals are transformed into potential managers; equipped with all necessary ingredients required to succeed in the corporate world. Headed by Mr. Apoorva Varma, a man with over 25 years of corporate experience, IISE is committed towards offering quality education and placement, for a very affordable fee. Its sprawling lush green campus means the students can look beyond the usual concrete jungles, and occasionally, study in the lap of nature. At IISE, when they join, students are mere humans. With consistent efforts, the metamorphosis into Human Capital takes place, and it is this transformation that ultimately leads to success. IISE’s concern for the welfare of its students lies in its inherent philosophy—‘Of the students, by the students, for the students’.
The year 1991, a great visionary and philanthropist, Dr. Girish Bihari, IPS, former DGP, Uttar Pradesh, in his conquest towards serving the society, even after his retirement, initiated the mission, with the PGDM programme. Those were the days when Higher Education was in its infancy, and Management Programmes were considered the domains of Government Institutions. But when the intentions are pious, your ship makes a mockery of the roughest of weathers, and sails through to its destination. The Founder, one of the best IPS officers the nation ever produced, took the risk, and the dream was born.The Disabled Children Education Trust (DCET), the fountain-head of IISE, was established in the year 1991 in order to impart free-of-cost professional education to the disabled children of India. The DCET umbrella holds under its ambit the International Institute for Special Education (IISE) Society.
The IISE Society was registered in the same year, i.e., 1991 with the mission: “to settle in life through Management and IT education, primarily the poor disabled people (free education) and the normal people of India and the world”. The Society established an educational institute with the same name, International Institute for Special Education (IISE) in 1991. The governing body took the solemn vow to use the institution for accomplishing the mission and not to make money out of it. The vow continues to be honoured and the entire surplus generated is ploughed back into the institution. Moreover, the founder, Dr Girish Bihari had a strong and unassailable view that IISE will cater to that section of society who wants to send their children for management/IT education but cannot afford to pay the high fees charged by the educational institutions run by big business houses. Thus, the fees remained and continues to remain highly affordable.
IISE’s flagship course, PGDM, is a Two Year Full Time Programme that has made phenomenal contribution towards filling industry requirements. The programme has been granted equivalence to the university MBA programme by AICTE. The programme is up-to-date with the requisite standards of business and commerce, so that the employers get what they desire for. Over eighteen years old, the PGDM Programme has given thousands of consummate professionals to the industry. Our alumni are working with some of the best brands, most at coveted top positions.
