Welcome to the IFHE



Welcome to the Icfai Foundation for Higher Education (IFHE)

The Icfai Foundation for Higher Education (IFHE) is a Trust registered in 2005 under the Indian Trust Act. It was carved out of the Institute of Chartered Financial Analysts of India (ICFAI), a not-for-profit educational society registered in 1984. The IFHE was declared as a deemed-to-be-university under Section 3 of the UGC Act 1956 in December 2008 with ICFAI Business School (IBS), Hyderabad (Faculty of Management) as constituent unit. Based on the recommendation of the UGC Committee, the Faculty of Science & Technology and the Faculty of Law were started in 2010. Also, the Bar Council of India has approved the Faculty of Law Program. The campus is located in Donthanpalli, Shankarpalli Road, Hyderabad, on a green belt area and has state of the art infrastructure as well as excellent library facilities.

The university was accredited by NAAC in 2010. IBS Hyderabad has been consistently ranked amongst the top business schools in India. It is one of the first three business schools from South Asia to get SAQS accreditation by AMDISA (Association of Management Development Institutions of South Asia). It has also received a rating of A** by CRISIL and EB2 IN from ICRA. It has been rated as an excellent Business School in India by Eduniversal. It is one of the largest business schools in India and Asia.

To make management education more application oriented, our Case Research Center (CRC) has developed a large number of cases. We are a member of the European Case Clearing House (ecch), the single largest source of management case studies. We rank among the world’s top five contributors to ecch. The cases developed at the CRC are used world over. Some are published as part of standard international and Indian textbooks and case books. The cases developed here have won several international prizes.

The university offers BBA, MBA, PhD, BTech, and BBA-LLB (Hons) Programs. The students are from all parts of India. In fact, there is a mini India on the campus. The university has a students' strength of about 3000 and a faculty strength of over 200.

The quality of the programs offered at the university is ensured by five factors:

• Designing a relevant curriculum including soft skills and internship program.
• Student-centric academic delivery.
• Continuous evaluation and feedback.
• Focus on research by the faculty.
• Industry and foreign collaborations.

The university offers a balance between academic, co-curricular, extra-curricular, and social activities so as to enable the students to become well rounded persons with concern for the society.
