Beyond the MBA Classroom: Underground Poker at the Indian School of Business

When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also making a commitment to a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.

According to several students we interviewed at the Indian School of Business (ISB), the underground poker club is the talk of the campus, with some students claiming that the club is their favorite pastime at the school. Staying up into the wee hours of the night and playing for real money, participants devote several hours a week outside class to the club and reportedly form deep relationships with their classmates who share a passion for the game.

For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at the ISB and 15 other top MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.
