A LEAP FORWARD IN 2014
The campus where Immanuel Business School is located was known as IBS campus. But no more. 2014 will see the launch of two more Master's program in the campus: College of Education and Mass Communcation.
With these additions, the campus will have a new name and be known as Immanuel Academy of Higher Education. The Board has approved this name in their recent meeting in Hyderabad.
With a lot of plants and trees growing, the campus is now looking great. The Residence Hall and the Guest House added to the campus have served well not just to accommodate our studens, but also to host foreign students and the faculty.
RETURN OF U.S. INTERNS
Some of our second-year business students have just returned from their visit to U.S.A. with Professor Sheela Samson. Sheela had the opportunity to be at Spring Arbor University, Michigan and observe foreign education system. Their return to the campus after such phenomenal exposure has brought in rich offering to imbibe our education system. The impact is being felt every day.
NEW RESIDENCE HALL
Sorry Girls! This is not for you. The brand new Residence Hall (Hostel Building) with modern amenities has been occupied by the boys. Our girl students will continue to stay in the Bogaram campus which is safer for them and only 15 minutes away. We provide the transportation.
Our library is upgraded. Auditorium and the College of Education are under construction. We are excited about what is in store for us through the year 2014.
If you are thinking about pursuing a Master's program, we encourage you to choose Immanuel Academy.
Others may help you dream dreams but we will help your dreams reach new altitudes.

GROUND BREAKING OF
MCKENNA COLLEGE OF EDUCATION
January 23, 2014. After the Board Meeting at Hotel Royal Reve, Secunderabad, all the Board Members of Immanuel Academy of Higher Education joined the campus community for the ground breaking of McKenna College of Education.
The Academy Board has resolved to name the College of Educaiton for Dr.David and Janet McKenna, giants in American Education System. While Janet is an educator, Dave has served as the President of three Universities in his life time: Asbury Seminary, Spring Arbor University and Seattle Pacific University in USA. Their life's emphasis has been to impart incarnational higher education to today's world.
Dave is 86; he could not come for the ground breaking. But his son who is an entrepruener and a business professor flew down to Hyderabad along with David Goodnight, President of Friends of Immanuel University to participate in the ground breaking of the College dedicated to his parents.
The building work is slated to be completed by May 2014 and after accreditation, the first cohort of B. Ed students will be taken in July 2014.
There was an overflow of joy in the campus of Immanuel Academy on reaching another mile stone in our journey towards becoming a University. The feeling was simply awesome! Our vision remains unchanged. We would continue to empower the destitute youth through higher education.
SPU PROFESSOR ROB MCKENNA
AT IMMANUEL ACADEMY
On the day that the students and faculty of Spring Arbor University left the campus, David Goodnight and Rob McKenna with 5 students of Seattle Pacific University, USA arrived at Immanuel Academy. It has been a great time of learning for our business students in the very first month of the year.
True to our promise, we bring world class education to your doorstep.

A Contingents of 20 graduate students and two professors from Spring Arbor University, U.S.A. arrived at the Immanuel Academy on January 10, 2014. The new Residence Hall in the campus has served well for their stay.
Academy students received them in the morning and rightaway a connection has been built up.
The foreign students are keen on learning Indian culture, and the history of the land. It has been a huge opportunity for our students to interact with them, know their culture, study together and of course play some cricket.

IBS STUDENTS IN U. S. A.
A RICH OFFERING TO POOR STUDENTS!
BRILLIANT LEARNING EXPERIENCES!
AWESOME EXPOSURE TO INTERNATIONAL BUSINESSES!
This is the story of four Business Students of
IBS who visited U.S.A. in October 2013.
When people saw their energy and hunger for
learning, they called them Indian Eagles. The team
consisted of two girls and two boys: Pratyusha,
Utkalika, Sujit and Kiran Kumar
In their own words…
We feel very privileged to be shortlisted by IBS administration for the internship in USA this year. It was such an elite experience right from the time we boarded the plane in Hyderabad.
This was the first time ever we took a flight. We were as much excited as we were nervous throughout the long journey.
When we landed in Detroit, Michigan, we did not know where to meet our hosts. As soon as we passed through the immigration, we were greeted with a flash of smiles by two eminent personalities from Spring Arbor University, Ms. Diane Kurtz and Ms. Carla Koontz, and of course our very own professor Ms. Sheela Samson who had gone before us to Spring Arbor to observe international education system.
On arrival at SAU, the resident students gave us a wonderful welcome and were very helpful to us. During our stay in the campus, we gained rich experiences by attending classes in Gainey’s Business School. We also learnt to trade in stock market while sitting in the class room. We couldn’t have done better for a practical lesson.
While in Spring Arbor, we visited a few business organizations like COMERICA BANK, FREE METHODIST FOUNDATION, and SAM’S CLUB. These visits helped us understand American work culture and their business functions.
Ms. Marvell Vanest was another ideal personality we met at Spring Arbor. Her invitation to visit her home opened up the opportunity to understand American home life.
In the following week, we travelled to Seattle and had the joy of staying at the Goodnight’s. Despite their busy schedule, David Goodnight and his wife Shelly were very kind to host us.
Our next big stop was Warm Beach Camp and Conference Center. At the Warm Beach Camp, we were mentored by Caroline and Jemmy. Besides working on our projects under their guidance, we visited many Multi-national Companies such as Microsoft, Boeing, Fisher Plumbing, Smokey Point Concrete, and Arson Security Group. We were also privileged to attend a seminar.
We are indeed grateful to Ed and Patrick for creating a space for our training. We are indebted to the Heads of the business farms for not only giving us an exposure to international businesses but also taking time to explain the business concepts and how they work in America. At Boeing in Seattle, we were permitted to visit the manufacturing unit – it was awesome. Daryl Miller, the CEO of Fisher Plumbing rightly said, “Skills and communication keep you in business but socialization gives you success.”
That is exactly what we have been looking for through our studies and international travels.
A visit to Seattle Pacific University was yet another fabulous experience. We attended a few classes with SPU students. “Hack the World Class” was one of a kind. Our grateful thanks to Dr. Rob McKenna for giving us the opportunity to understand what and how the students in U.S. thought of India. We greatly enjoyed interacting with the students.
As though these delightful experiences were not enough, we had a surprise gift from Cliff Otis before we left Seattle: a Laptop for each one. Thanks, Uncle Cliff!
We are indeed thankful to everyone who has helped us during our visit to USA and were responsible for our happy journey, comfortable stay and brilliant learning.

Prathyusha's parents visited IBS on the day Prathyusha left for U.S.A. recently. Joy was clearly visible on their faces. And why not?
Prathyusha was one of the students fully sponsored by IBS to go on a study tour to U.S.A. When she completes MBA and looks out for a job, her U.S. learning experience is going to stand out prominently.
From the employer's point of view, the Business Houses very well understand the value of those students who are exposed to international business.
Therefore IBS is one choice students may not want to ignore for a career and a future. Scroll down and take a look...

BRING IT WITH YOU WHEN YOU JOIN IBS!
ONE OF OUR PROFESSORS, Sheela Samson, is at Spring Arbor University, USA, at the moment on a three-week educational tour. Our second-year students, Pratyusha, Utkalika, Kiran Kumar and Sujit Kumar, left Hyderabad on 21 October 2013 to join her in U.S. They will be visiting Spring Arbor University and Seattle Pacific University to learn International culture and education system.
The difference between IBS faculty & students going abroad and others is that our faculty and students are fully sponsored by the university. Isn't that something?
Why do you think we sponsor and invest in our faculty and students to visit overseas? Simple - so they can get international exposure and return with world class experience to impact our campus.
If you are joining IBS this year, bring your passport with you. Who knows you could be one of those joining the next cohort of students going overseas!
IBS STUDENTS VISIT HORTICULTURE MANAGEMENT FIRM
IBS first year students visited a Horticulture Firm in Hyderabad recently. It was very educational and full of fun. Students get many such opportunities to have a first hand experience of business management in various companies.
IBS STUDENTS AND FACULTY
TO LEAVE FOR U.S.A.
IBS is your passport to a dream career. When a student decides to join IBS, we encourage him/her to come with the passport. As the connections with many foreign universities grow, IBS becomes strategic to offer the rarest opportunity to their students to go abroad for internship in the very first year.
Some of our students will be travelling to U.S.A. in October 2013 to participate in a 6-week management module along with one of the professors. They will be visiting universities, business farms and non-profits to understand the work culuture, development pattern and administrative system.
True to our promise, we are making every possible effort to build the career of our students not just in the campus but also by providing exposure to international businesses.

The seminar is the first ever Business Seminar organized by IBS since its commencement this year.
The participants received new and useful information from the resouce persons. There were question times between the sessions to clarify their doubts.
Lunch and tea was served to all participants.
WHAT DID THE PROFESSORS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE AT IBS?
I would personally like to thank Bishop Lohara for the privilege of teaching at IBS. It is very exciting to see what God is doing through this new school. The new guest house for visiting professors is very nice and made our stay comfortable. I have worked with many schools and seminaries around the world and the hospitality was second to none. God is moving at IBS in an amazing way and I hope that God gives me the opportunity to teach here again in the future.
Todd Marshall, Ph.D.
Dean of SAUonline
Spring Arbor University, U.S.A.
It was a pleasure to teach at Immanuel Business School for a week in the inaugural MBA classes and speak in special seminars. I observed and taught a class of MBA students with great potential who demonstrated an extraordinary desire to learn which is refreshing. The Immanuel Business School is to be congratulated in not only starting the first MBA class of qualified students this fall but also in creating two outstanding seminars for business leaders and owners. This new college with its administration, faculty, and staff should be recognized for its entry into the business academy with much demonstrated expertise and for its potential of becoming a premier business college in India.
James Coe, Ph. D.
Professor of Business Spring Arbor University, U.S.A.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Bishop Lohara, President of IBS, for an outstanding experience with my stay in Hyderabab, India. I was treated with utmost dignity and respect, from their warm greeting at the Hyderabab airport to my final day going home. The entire staff at IBS not only met my needs, but they exceeded them. I felt safe and comfortable in every aspect at my stay in India, especially at their guest house. On a special note, our chef did an outstanding job preparing and serving all of our meals in a variety and professional fashion. The teaching and lecturing experiences provided me the opportunity not only to interact with students, businessmen and leaders but an insight for me to understand the Indian culture. Being my first “real” exposure to India I would welcome the opportunity to come back and teach again at IBS. God Bless Bishop Lohara, his family and staff for making this teaching more than an “experience”, but a truly “meaningful” event.

IMMANUEL BUSINESS SCHOOL
INAUGURATED IN HYDERABAD
16 MAY 2012. IMMANUEL BUSINESS SCHOOL, an MBA College for Minorities, was inaugurated at Solipet, 30 kms northeast of Hyderabad at 7:00 PM.
The evening pulsated with enormous activities. From the ribbon cutting at the main gate to the unveiling of inaugural stone at IBS building, there were several stops for the parade to engage in unfurling the University banner, cutting the ribbon at college cafeteria, multipurpose building, library, computer lab, etc.
Among special Guests of Honor who were present on the occasion were the Member of Legislative AssemblySmt. Christine Lazarus, Bishop Zachariah and President of Friends of Immanuel University Dr. David R. Goodnight and Patrick Patterson of U.S.A.
The 10-acres IBS campus was beautifully lit with colorful lights for the grand inauguration. Patrick Patterson cut the ribbon at the main entrance, and Dr. David Goodnight unfurled the University flag. The colorfully dressed band then moved on the parade to University cafeteria where Smt. Christine Lazarus cut the ribbon to declare it open.
By then thousands of people had gathered in the campus with media crowding the portico area of MBA block to capture the moment when Bishop Joab Lohara, Bishop of Immanuel Conference and Vice President of Free Methodist World Conference unveiled the inaugural stone.
A live music band enthralled the audience that comprised ofresidents from and around Solipet, visitors from the city, academicians, political and Christian leaders, and government officials. Senior girls from Immanuel Children’s Home performed the welcome dance. The program ended with a love feast given in memory of Dinesh Gaurav, eldest son of Bishop Lohara. Prior to this, Dr. David Goodnight delivered a very meaningful 5-point message on how a Christian University should be.
