Core Council

The Core Council is the epicentre of student activities at ISBF! Not only does it organise the mega annual inter-college cultural festival – Xenia, but it also puts together the much-loved annual college trip and various other marquee events. As it includes among its ranks an elected member, the Core Council represents the students of ISBF and is responsible for their welfare. In fulfilling this responsibility, it acts as a bridge between the management and the student body, which is a lesson in sleight-of-hand diplomacy as well as policy making and implementation.


Whether it is to tickle your brain cells or teach you diplomacy, Akademos leads the way. We do this through a host of activities, from interesting guest talks to quizzes, debates and weekly discussions. There is more than one way to think about almost everything, and our activities aim to expose participants to these myriad perspectives so that they may form their own informed opinion on important matters. After all, isn’t that what one would expect from a University of London graduate?

Artefactory, The Design Society

Earth without art is just eh!

At Artefactory, we strive to embellish not just our physical surroundings (aka, our college) but also hearts! We add colour to the college experience and we adore to adorn! Creativity and imagination flow unbounded at Artefactory and if you are the king/queen of design, you get to sit on our Iron Throne!

Blaize (Dance Society)

Got any new moves? Well, we always do! Blaize is the dance society of ISBF. Any song, any beat, we know how to groove along. We believe that each participant/member brings a unique style – from trained classical dancers to those who are there just for Hip Hop and Street style. No newbie feels left out at Blaize, and our frequent practice sessions soon make us a family. So whether it is to sweat it out at workouts or be part of an energetic dance set, this society is just what you need to channelise your extra-curricular energies.

The Career Placement Cell (CPC)

Career Placement Cell (CPC) at ISBF works closely with the Careers Team (CT) to conduct guest lectures, careers train ing workshops, industry visits and other sessions for the skill development of ISBF students. CPC also works in tandem with CT to facil itate placements and internships. The best part?

This society brings fun to college! From Halloween to Diwali, we ensure that festivals are celebrated with aplomb. In fact, all we need is a reason to host an exciting student event, and then we’re unstoppable. Our events vary in form, format, theme, genre and, of course, memories, but what unifies them is our aim to engage every participating student. So if you’re looking to enjoy campus life, we’re one society you can’t miss!

We play with stocks, bonds and mutual funds to formulate a strategy that works for us. As groups within the cell, we maintain portfolios and test our assumptions and theories in real-time to discover the tricks of the trade. Come join us if you have a keen interest in stocks, funds and everything related to money!
